A popular page on Facebook, entitled 'Police Officers,' recently posted a controversial memorial of Michael Brown, the teen who was killed last year by a cop in Ferguson, Missouri.
The fake memorial reads:
There once was a thug named Brown
Who bum-rushed a cop with a frown
Six bullets later
He met his creator
Then his homies burnt down the town
The Facebook page's administrator page wrote in the comments section:
Mike Brown chose his path, one that has lead this country into complete divisiveness. He's not a martyr, he was a thug, who robbed a clerk and then made the adult choice to fight a cop, of which he intended to murder.
Mike Brown and his cronies have been responsible for the perpetuation of a movement founded in thuggery and lies.
At the end of the day, the person truly responsible for the killing of Mike Brown is Mike Brown himself.
There were over 3,000 "likes" for this posting, but The Free Thought Project notes that some police officers were offended by it.
