Michael Brown’s Mother Running For Ferguson City Council


The mother of Michael Brown has announced she’s entering the political fray in the St. Louis suburb where her unarmed teenage son was shot dead by police in 2014. In an event organized down the street from where 18-year-old Brown was shot dead by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, Lezley McSpadden told a crowd Friday she’s running to become a member of the Ferguson, Mo. City Council. “Almost four years ago to this day, I ran down this very street, and my son was covered in a sheet,” McSpadden said, per NBC News.

“I learned to walk again, and this is one of my first steps.” As KSDK notes, McSpadden’s announcement comes at a conspicuous time in the history of a case that helped spark widespread demonstrations against the deaths of black Americans at the hands of police.


20 Comments on Michael Brown’s Mother Running For Ferguson City Council

  1. She represents what is so wrong in America today, no sense of shame. Her husband initiated a riot that cost over $26 million minimum. Her son’s death has led to the “Ferguson Effect” and has probably cost tons of people their lives due to lack of police response. To act as though she had even raised her son to “Do the right thing” is laughable given video evidence and sworn testimony of eye witnesses who are people of color. But, as the case with so many communities, it is not about doing what is right, it is trying to make up for a perceived injustice when justice has already been served.

  2. The most unqualified person for the job given her son was a thug who got what he deserved for attacking the police. If she is elected, the voters who put her there deserve her lack of integrity.

  3. Awesome comments, ChristianPDX. This ignorant hood rat, has the nerve to race bait and continue extort her own community. What better way to do that than to become a leftist politician and perpetuate the myth her thug son was a victim – a lie that has been the catalyst for numerous deaths.
    If she cared so much about her community she could have gotten herself together a long time ago and raised a son who would not have become a monster.
    Clearly, she’s a reflection of Ferguson – a sorry excuse for a city.

  4. she has freewill, so if this is what she wants, then her legacy, and her families are both sealed, and doomed to be forever in Ferguson, Mo.

  5. Brown punched Wilson so hard
    he was all most knocked out and
    Brown was grabbing for the officer’s

  6. Well, why not. She received her high school diploma last year at age 37 so she’s more than qualified. A few years earlier she and some friends attacked her former mother-in-law who was selling Micheal Brown Tee shirts in a parking lot so she already knows how to destroy small businesses.


    Can’t wait to see the video of the city council meeting when there’s a chimp out when she doesn’t get her way.

  7. “I learned to walk again…” is as hokey as “It takes a Village”. They’re masters of empty platitudinal sloganeering.

    Perhaps if she’d taught her son how to walk away….

    No, I believe her true intentions for running is the boyfriend’s chant, “Burn it down!!!”

  8. This wouldn’t be the first crackhead to run for political office, as a democrat. Marion Barry anybody?

  9. Hey lady, your son was a terrible person, probably because you were a terrible parent. The world is a better place without him.

  10. Just another way to cash in on her son’s well-deserved death. They’re taking the Ghetto Lottery to a whole new level.
