"Defendants took up arms and, in militaristic displays of force and weaponry, engaged U.S. Citizens as if they were war combatants," the suit claims.
WASHINGTON — A multi-million dollar lawsuit was filed in federal court in Missouri on Thursday, seeking compensation for “excessive force” by the police in Ferguson, Missouri, in the days after the shooting of Michael Brown.
According to the suit, the excessive force included false arrest, assault and battery; led to intentional infliction of emotional distress; was the result of negligent supervision and discipline; and resulted in a violation of the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights.
The lawsuit, filed by three out-of-state lawyers — including Malik Shabazz from Black Lawyers for Justice, who participated in the protests in Missouri — seeks multi-million dollar judgments against the City of Ferguson and St. Louis County, as well as one specific ands several unknown officers on behalf of Tracey White, Dewayne A. Matthews Jr., Kerry White, Damon Coleman, and Theophilus Green.
In addition to the city and county, the chief of both city and county police are named as defendants, as is Justin Cosma, a police officer with the Ferguson Police Department.

I recorded this last night. The volume was mad low because my daughter was sleeping, but turn up your volume or use headphones and listen closely to the astonishingly malicious reporting from CNN International (which takes over American CNN every night for some reason).
They have 3 [Black] eyewitnesses, which they completely disregard by framing a false equivalency with— and I’m not making this up, "an anonymous caller who did NOT witness the shooting BUT is a friend of the officers"
Whaaaaaat? You’re rebutting 3 eyewitnesses with an anonymous caller who did NOT even see the events AND is a friend of the shooter? Really?
Where they do that at?
CNN continues, “"an anonymous caller who did NOT witness the shooting BUT is a friend of the officers says Michael Brown was the aggressor, which CNN has CONFIRMED matches the account officer Wilson gave authorities.”
Oh, you confirmed it did you? Of course it matches, she already admitted that she could not possibly know if what she’s saying is true. She’s a plant, representing the guy who will literally say anything to stay out of jail. And CNN uses the word “confirmed” in an attempt to add validity to nonsense, while making it sound like they did some work.
Then, as if that wasn’t crazy enough, they immediately play the fucking ANONYMOUS person’s call/version of events on TV!! With captioning to make sure you absorb the brainwash! As if it could possibly have any merit. They did not play any of the eyewitness accounts and went straight to a play-by-play from someone who WASN’T EVEN THERE??!!
That is a gross violation of journalistic responsibility and public trust.
Why have they chosen a side?
