Ferguson: Michael Brown’s stepdad, Louis Head says ‘Burn this (bleep) down’

Video has surfaced of Michael Brown’s stepfather calling for the city of Ferguson to be burned to the ground following the announcement Monday night that a grand jury had decided not to indict the officer who shot his stepson.

Michael Brown dressed up possible gang signs“Burn this b**** down!” Louis Head screamed into the crowd of those who encircled him, repeating the statement ten times. According to reports, he asked for a microphone so that he could be heard by the masses.

Head made the declaration moments after Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden began crying and yelling profanities.

“[T]hey think this is a [expletive] joke!” she shouted. “Ya’ll wrong. Anybody out here don’t think so, I don’t give a [expletive].”

“Everybody wants me to be calm,” McSpadden continued. “Do you know how them bullets hit my son?”

“Nobody had to live through what I had to live through,” she screamed. “But y’all want to come with y’all [expletive] [expletive] comments.”

According to reports, over 20 fires had to be put out throughout the night as violence soon erupted on the streets of Ferguson, including at least 12 structural fires. As previously reported, businesses such as Little Caesar’s and an unidentified beauty salon were completely destroyed after being set on fire by the crowds.

“Storage facility and Sam’s Meat Market near W. Florissant and Canfield have been set on fire in Ferguson,” the St. Louis County Police Department Tweeted.

At least two police vehicles were set on fire, and a dumpster was engulfed in flames a few blocks from the Ferguson police station.

Meanwhile, the latest autopsy results confirmed the struggled with Brown and Darren Wilson, as well as the fact that Brown was shot while facing Wilson, not shot in the back as some reports indicated.
