NOVEMBER 24--With grand jurors today reaching a decision in the Michael Brown shooting, cops are continuing to investigate a violent confrontation last month between members of the late teenager’s family, including his mother, who is named in a police report as one of the “attackers” who beat and robbed vendors selling commemorative t-shirts.
The probe of the October 18 attack remains an “active investigation,” according to Stephanie Karr, city attorney in Ferguson, Missouri.
As detailed in a police report, the ransacking of the merchandise stands was classified as a felony armed robbery. The assault, which left one victim hospitalized, began when a large group of individuals “jumped out of vehicles and rushed” the three vendors, a group that included Pearlie Gordon, the mother-in-law of Michael Brown Sr..
In a video shot by a passing motorist, a man--apparently one of the vendors--is seen being pinned to the pavement by a larger man throwing punches. Standing next to the men is a woman holding a metal rod. Nearby, a second scuffle appears to be ending by one the tents, under which merchandise has been dumped on the ground and a table has been overturned. TSG has reviewed the clip, which was provided by the motorist.
OMG... These people were only worried about making money..
