A Puzzling number of men tied to Ferguson protests have died

ONN: 

FERGUSON, Mo. (March 17, 2019) — Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died of apparent suicides. Another collapsed on a bus, his death ruled an overdose.

Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play.

Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer’s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests.

The Rev. Darryl Gray said he found a box inside his car. When the bomb squad arrived, no explosives were found but a 6-foot (1.8-meter) python was inside.

“Everybody is on pins and needles,” Gray said of his fellow activists.

No arrests have been made in the two homicides. St. Louis County police spokesman Shawn McGuire said witnesses have simply refused to come forward, leaving detectives with no answers for why the men were targeted.

“We don’t believe either one was connected to each other,” McGuire said, but adding, “It’s tough to come up with a motive without a suspect.”

Ferguson erupted in protests in August 2014 after officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Brown during a street confrontation. Brown was unarmed, but Wilson said he fired in self-defense when the black teenager came at him menacingly.

A grand jury declined to charge Wilson in November 2014, prompting one of the most violent nights of demonstrations, and one of the first activist deaths.

Deandre Joshua’s body was found inside a burned car blocks from the protest. The 20-year-old was shot in the head before the car was torched.

Darren Seals, shown on video comforting Brown’s mother that same night, met an almost identical fate two years later. The 29-year-old’s bullet-riddled body was found inside a burning car in September 2016.

Four others also died, three of them ruled suicides.

  1. I imagine this is more easily linked to the type of people that take part in violent anti-police race riots than it is to the “protests” themselves.

    Unstable people, drug users, gang members, etc. are more likely to get themselves killed or commit suicide or get killed in other dangerous activities than are normal well adjusted people that stay away from rioting instead of taking part in it.

  2. “Came at him menacingly” that’s totally inaccurate and / or disgenuious reporting. Reaching in, beating, and attempting to disarm a police officer cannot be dismissed as “menacing”. Hey media, we know you’re stupid and that you do this sort of misstatement intentionally.

  3. Sounds like they were black men with histories of criminal activities, poor impulse control and drug use. Of course the Prog/Race Baiting community will turn this into a conspiracy to gain revenge upon the upstanding members of the black community for their parts in the Ferguson misunderstanding. The usual utter bullshit coming from the left. I wonder who they’ll sue?

  4. Chances are they were (either) fags who “knew” Obola or confrères of Mrs. Clinton.

    But, really, does anyone GAF? Y’know – negro guys killed by socialistically-aligned negroes? Perhaps the cops should be asking Soros? He funded it, didn’t he?

  5. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the Klan could never have envisioned a lifestyle so self-destructive as the “thug life” lifestyle that is so prevalent in the black community.

  6. Interesting Story, But I’m sure You could use the Bermuda Triangle

    Theory on it . That is taking the dimensions of the Triangle,

    and flopping it over any busy Shipping Lane in the World..And

    see the same results in loss of Ships and Aircraft.

    Flip the Ferguson Triangle over any large Ghetto and You’d get

    the same Death Ratio.

  7. Well, when you get subhuman, feral species to support your cause with the promise of free shit and you can’t deliver said free shit.

    Well, shit happens.

  8. Dying young seems to be an occupational hazard of feral hood rats. No loss it would seem, or the neighborhoods would take care of the problem themselves since it’s clear they don’t want the police to help out.

  9. The one time I can think of where social media may be helping to quash the Left’s thoughts of orchestrating false flags. Good. If people are on “pins and needles” over taking part in activities that divide our country, that’s a good thing.

  10. Look at it this way, less criminals that the cops have to deal with. Less drug dealers, less drug users, but most of all less breeding that will be going on. No more weed for them! Win-win all away around.

  11. The leading cause of death among 16-40 y/o negro males was MURDER – over 40 years ago!
    Hasn’t changed a bit – AND they still vote the same way!
    They’ve learned absolutely nothing!

    Oh – and they’re still sucking the asses of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson – just like they did 40 years ago!
    Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

  12. “Let’s kill each other to own the cons!”

    Maybe the leftards are taking hoax crimes to a whole new and glorious level.

  13. I agree with what others have said: those death are a symptom of their lifestyle father than having anything to do with the Ferguson Temper Tantrums.

    I remember after the shooting of Saint Sleezebag, much was made of how witnesses we being intimidated. If you looked closely you could tell that they were being intimidated by the criminal element, but they were trying to imply that they were being intimidated by the police and their supporters.
