• DISGUSTING: Ferguson to Install a Plaque Honoring Mike Brown

    If you’ve ever wondered how you might go about being honored by your hometown with plaque memorializing your life after you’ve passed on, look no further than the city of Ferguson and the story of Michael Brown.

    You see before he died, Michael “Mike” Brown was a budding gangsta rapper, he was a shoplifter, drug dealer, he had ties to local gangs, and he wasn’t afraid to assault and run from the police.

    These are just a few reasons why the city of Ferguson, Missouri has decided to honor Michael Brown by installing a plaque in his name.

    Brace yourself:

    Here’s how the St. Louis Dispatch is covering the story:

    The memorial to Michael Brown on Canfield Drive has been removed and will replaced by a plaque, Mayor James Knowles III and Michael Brown Sr. announced Wednesday.

    Knowles said the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis will store the stuffed animals and other items that have formed the temporary memorial down the center of Canfield Drive since Aug. 9, when Michael Brown was shot and killed there by a Ferguson police officer.

    Flanked by newly-elected Ferguson City Council members Wesley Bell and Ella Jones, Knowles and Brown said the plaque will be part of a new permanent memorial in the area.

     In an interview after the news conference, Bell said the new memorial along Canfield will include the figure of a dove, and that Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, had been involved with the planning. The metallic dove and the plaque will be embedded in the sidewalk along Canfield.

    So that’s it.

    If you want to be immortalized forever, just take up a life of senseless thuggery, be killed by a white cop and with the help of Al Sharpton and a corrupt media–and a few hundred underpaid agitators–you can have a plaque with you name on and face on it.
