Court Discloses Info on Michael Brown's Juvenile Records; Some Still Dissatisfied

Categories: Michael Brown

The St. Louis County Circuit Court confirmed that Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, had no major felony convictions or charges as a juvenile.

The revelation comes after professional media organizations, including GotNews.com and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch fought in court for the public's right to know about what an unarmed, eighteen-year-old did as a minor in the years before he was shot and killed by Wilson.

According to the Post-Dispatch:

Michael Brown was never found delinquent of the juvenile equivalents of any Class A or B felony charges, and was not facing any at the time he died, a court official said this morning at a hearing on whether his juvenile records should be released...

Class A felonies include second-degree murder and first-degree robbery; the penalties in adult court range from 10 years in prison to death. Class B felonies include voluntary manslaughter, second-degree robbery and first-degree burglary, with a maximum penalty of five to 15 years.

However, the Post-Dispatch and GotNews.com were unsuccessful in getting every detail of Brown's childhood actions before his death:

It is not known whether Brown had ever been accused of lesser offenses; any record of those would be part of a confidential family court file.

The lack of information regarding what -- if any -- C felonies or lesser offenses, such as littering citations, Brown may have had left some feeling there were still too many questions about the young, unarmed man shot and killed by a police officer.

One of those questioning was conservative blogger Charles C. Johnson, who was alongside Post-Dispatch attorneys to get access to Brown's records. Johnson said that just because one was never convicted of a crime, that doesn't mean that the person might have suspected of doing something at some point in their life:

In order to further serve the public with highly relevant information to this controversial case, Riverfront Times announced it is seeking access to Wilson's juvenile records.

That process is still ongoing. However, it has been recently discovered that Wilson, while a senior on the St. Charles West inline hockey team, was ejected from a game for being the "third man in" and receiving a 10-minute game misconduct.

NO major felony convictions or charges as a juvenile.  ??  How about Minor Felony convictions ? ( as if they even exist ) Another libtard attempt to paint this hooligan as a skittles chomping sweet kid.  


LibTards are a serious threat to the gene pool

Not so fast. Read the weasel words of the "court official" carefully: "Michael Brown was never [CONVICTED] of the juvenile equivalents of any Class A or B felony charges ...."

In other words, Michael Brown may have been CHARGED with one or more serious A or B-level felonies that were pleaded down to lesser felonies. Micheal Brown may have had a long and serious juvenile record.

Yeah he might not have had a record, that doesn't mean he didn't do anything, it just means he never got caught.

It really doesnt matter how old he was or what his background was ,  on the day he was shot and killed he was breaking the law , physically with force attacking an Officer of the law with intent to do great bodily harm or even death. MB made choices that day that lead to an early grave , HE  made those choices. When you chose to break the law and commit against another person physically YOU are responsible for the outcome. Laws are made for everyone NOT to be broken but to be FOLLOWED , when a Law Officer says stop , hands up , get on the ground ....... YOU DO IT  ....... you ask questions after the Law Officer is secured in knowing his own safety and those around him is in hand. IF you fail to cooperate , you are breaking the law .... HOW DARE ANYONE  tell a Law Officer he has to guess at whether or not the person is going to kill him . Do you stop to ask someone who is broken into your home if they have intentions of harming you before you dial 911 or grab your own gun for protection?  Do you wait till you are on the verge of death yourself to make the final judgement to defend yourself and/or your family ? NO you do not ,  and  after many Officers being shot dead over things like minor traffic stops  with no warning or suspicion at all They STOPPED  guessing too , Law Officer secure the safety of everyone FIRST ...... This  whole debate and argument is STUPID  no other word for it  STUPID ........ That Law Officer was doing HIS  JOB , Mr Brown made very bad choices and broke the Law , those choices  MR BROWS CHOICES  are the reason and cause for his death. NOTHING  else . NOT his skin color and NOT his age ... HIS CHOICES

Thug caught on video being a thug at the store at a minimum. 

Who pushes a store clerk like that?

Thugs about to be dead, I guess.


Thanks for making south side Chicago look more like a civilized ghetto than yours.

Cumulatively, all black income equates to more than a TRILLION DOLLARS. We have a huge buying margin. This group will accept everyone. We want to point out how much we actually are worth in Dollars. Since we are treated negatively, lets turn that into something positive by supporting black owned businesses. Lets start with the city of Furgeson by submitting black owned businesses that we will support. We will start there and also add black businesses that we will support acro...ss the country in every city, even as tourists. We want to concentrate directly in areas where we as black people are not treated right. By collectively supporting black businesses we will grow as a people with the idea to create jobs for those in our community and also show love to one another. No violence. No negativity. All positive actions. We have organized and want everyone to join our movement by submitting names, numbers, and addresses of black owned businesses for all of our daily purchases. Lets turn a negative into a positive. Join the Black Trillionaire "Group" on facebook. Also send friend request on facebook to Lee Michaels (Black Trillionaire Group).

I don't know, next time your get stopped by the police, shove the officer back in his car, punch him in the face, and try to grab his gun. See if you don't get shot 6 times too.

Earl Barge not sure you're 100% on this. I think they may be able to release them if the guy is dead. On the other hand, you and I both know that a huge (if I could underline and make "huge" bold I would) number of cases are pleaded down or downright thrown out for pretty flimsy reasons. Not sure if this means anything anyway.

It has not been disproven that Officer's Wilson eye socket was broken. It's only been disproven that the picture is not him.

A and B felonies would only be public if he had been adjudicated as an adult. If he committed any crimes or juvenile offenses, they would not release any of that information to the public.

This feed makes me so sad. At the end of the day, a mother had to bury her son- not her black son, but her SON. I have a son too. He's not my white son- he's my son and I'd die without him. I have a horrible feeling Michael's mother is in that place right now. My prayers and heart go out to her.

@blacktrillionaire  If you want to support black businesses, you should get the word out before the rioters burn down the black businesses. It is difficult to patronize a business that has been destroyed by scumbags.


Also, if you take out the earnings of black athletes and "musicians" you would cut that amount in half.

If police were able to track down a store video of an unrelated robbery and every single detail of Michael Brown's youth to discredit him and protect the cop, don't you think they'd have probably released pics and details of injuries Brown inflicted on the officer by now?

Heather,


Michael`s Mother did not have a Son. That thing was a hoodlum & a thug. There is a big difference between your Son & hers.

No, they said shot from behind. If someone is being shot at from behind while I'm watching, how exactly am I to know for sure if any of those bullets actually went in?

@gibsongothchick Obviously longer than you think since Michael Brown's DNA was found INSIDE the police car. Go read the Grand Jury files released by the DA and quit blowing smoke.
