White Man from San Diego Waves Gun Around Small Children In Confrontation With Police and Is Taken Into Custody Alive.  

This white man walked towards the police with a gun pointed at them and they spend half an hour talking to him before they shoot him one time. If he had been a black man, they would’ve shot him dead. Before you police apologists claim this man has a history of mental illness (he does) that’s why the police was lenient,  Ezell Ford, a mentally ill black man, was recently killed by the LAPD.

A suspected drug dealer alleges that the Ferguson, Mo., policeman who killed Michael Brown used excessive force against him last year in an arrest that earned him commendation from the police department, the man’s attorney told Yahoo News.

Well, well, what a surprise.
A few quotes, bolded for importance:
According to the report, the men exited the car but Brooks wouldn’t give up his keys so the officer could search the locked PT Cruiser.
“Brooks slapped my hand away,” Wilson wrote. “Brooks was consistently yelling for his cousin, who was now on the front porch, to help him and asking him to ‘get me.’ ”
The officer took control of Brooks’ wrist and arm, but he “was resisting all control and refused to follow all commands given,” Wilson wrote. The officer called for backup because he said the situation was “growing increasing hostile.”
Zotos, a veteran St. Louis defense attorney, says his client remembers it a different way.
“The officer was physical with him, roughed him up,” Zotos told Yahoo News. “[Brooks] would not consent to a search of his vehicle, so [Wilson] forcibly took his keys from him.”
…
Ferguson police have revealed few details about the {Mike Brown} shooting or Wilson’s time with the department. It wasn’t until Yahoo News discovered a post on Wilson’s father’s Facebook page that the department acknowledged the officer had earned a commendation earlier this year. Officials have repeatedly declined to offer few details about the achievement outside of what Chief Thomas Jackson said in presenting the award.
“In recognition of outstanding police work while investigating a suspicious vehicle call,” Jackson told a packed city council chamber seven months ago. “Acting alone you struggled with one subject and was able to gain control of the subject and his car keys until assistance arrived.”
Through Missouri’s open records laws, Yahoo News obtained a heavily-edited police report of an arrest which the department said gave rise to Wilson’s award. The suspect’s name is redacted, but on Friday Zotos confirmed that Brooks’ arrest was the impetus for the accolade.
“I can’t explain what the commendation was about,” Zotos said. “That he fell into a couple of guys and he found some weed? Ok. I guess you give out commendations for doing your job?”
…
Brooks, 28, was initially arrested on four misdemeanor and three felony charges related to assaulting an officer, resisting arrest, failing to obey orders and possessing drugs with intent to distribute. However, he has only been prosecuted on the distribution charge.
Zotos said his client never received summonses related to the charges of disobeying and resisting Wilson.
“Which is kind of a surprise, because it is something Ferguson would do to get the fine money if they could,” said Zotos, adding that the statute of limitations has now expired.
