The Truth About The Michael Brown Shooting in Ferguson

The only truth that matters in this case is that crime doesn’t pay. Armed robbery, resisting arrest and moving to attack an officer will never end well. Although the family feels that the release of the footage showing Michael Brown unlawfully strong armed robbing 99 cents cigars, and punking out the poor little frail store owner was a character assassination, Michael Brown did it to himself plain and simple.

Lesson of the day: If strong armed robbery and resisting arrest were legal, we wouldn’t have this problem.

Tips: Don’t commit armed robbery. Don’t resist arrest after you’ve committed armed robbery.

Use Your Head During DWI & Other Stops

When lawfully refusing to cooperate with the police goes south, its usually because of a bad attitude or a condescending nature towards the officers on the scene on part of the detainee. Don’t act belligerent with police as it will make matters worse. Think police brutality.

Whether legal or illegal, any police response to a citizen with a bad attitude is guaranteed to turn out bad for the alleged offender. This is usually the root of evidence planting, false arrests, arrests for disorderly conduct, and in the worst of case, the implementation of police brutality.

Police are people too, and they make mistakes quite often. The last thing you need is to become a victim of edging on a loose-canon type of officer. While we respect police and know that most of them are upstanding citizens in their own right, there are other cops out there with no morality who wouldn’t think twice about slamming your head into their vehicle on “accident”.

If you’re ever arrested for a criminal offense involving murder, drugs, vehicular manslaughter, Driving While Intoxicated, DWI or DUI, contact a lawyer with an impressive resume or ask around to see if anyone you know may know of one who can represent you in the court of law.
