Friday marked the five year anniversary of the Ferguson riots that sprung up as a result of the death of Michael Brown Jr. by a police officer.
Although the police officer who fatally shot Brown was never charged by prosecutors, Democrat Presidential candidate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren claimed on Friday that Brown was murdered in a statement posted on Twitter.
Warren said, “5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.”
“Michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times,” Warren continued. “I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.”
Fox News Senior Political Analyst, Brit Hume, leveled Warren over her remarks after seeing them. See Below
Hume retweeted Warren’s statement and replied, “I don’t know which is worse: that she still believes this, or that she knows it’s false and says it anyway.”
“And why is the officer’s race an issue?” Hume asked. “Not even the Obama Justice Dept. concluded there was a murder.”
Brit then provided a link to an official Justice Department report on the death of Michael Brown, which you can read by CLICKING HERE. See Below
