Local Officials Are Investigating if Mike Brown’s Step-Father Incited Riot
No justice, No peace
On Monday November 24, 2014 Louis Head incited a riot in Ferguson, Missouri after the announcement of no indictment against Officer Darren Wilson.
Head repeatedly told the protesters to, “Burn this b*tch down!”
At least 18 businesses were torched to the ground and several more were looting and vandalized.
Now authorities are investigating whether to indict Louis Head for inciting a riot.
Authorities are investigating whether Michael Brown’s stepfather intended to incite a riot last week when he urged a crowd in Ferguson, Missouri, to “Burn this bitch down” after the grand jury’s decision was announced, the city’s police chief said Tuesday.
No charges have been filed against Louis Head in the incident, but police have interviewed people who know Head and who were with him November 24, the day a prosecutor announced that Officer Darren Wilson (who has since resigned) would not be indicted in the August 9 shooting of Michael Brown, Police Chief Tom Jackson said.
Shortly after St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Robert McCulloch’s announcement, Head stood above a crowd of demonstrators — some of them shouting “F— the police!” — and yelled, “Burn this motherf—er down!” and “Burn this bitch down!”
Ferguson, already tense from weeks of awaiting the grand jury’s decision, erupted following McCulloch’s news conference.
For the record… A White House petition was started last week to arrest Louis Head for inciting a riot in Ferguson.
