Don Lemon, CNN reporter and weekly contributor to the Tom Joyner Morning Show, reports live from Ferguson, Missouri.

“As we’ve been out here gauging people’s reaction, they are saying they don’t believe that this new information matters all to much. What really matters is when the officer and Michael Brown had that confrontation on the street,” Lemon says.

  1. My post is not to meant to underscore the death of Mr. Brown, but t the let the country, and the world know that in the country, we live with a dual judiciasl system. In my family case in SAtsuam, Alabama, we are being FROCED UNDER COLOR OF LAW, into ENTERING THE BACK OF OUR HOME AND PROPERTY, all because of the color of SKIN. We have written to the Dept. of justice, but nothing has been done about the situation. The following capsulizes of situation: No, this posting is not about a Third World Country.

    It is happening right here in America, in the state of Alabama, in the City of Satsuma (Mobile County).

    I have submitted this posting to a number of national noted news/media, but to date none have published our dilemma. The refusal to publish this dilemma may be due to the judicial and political climate and landscape of the Southern District of Alabama.

    We only want what is due to us, nothing more – that is to be treated the same as others similarly situated – that’s all.

    No one in the United States and/or the world should be FORCED INTO ENTERING the BACK DOOR of their own HOME and Property because of the COLOR OF THEIR SKIN – this is simple Un-American.

    It appears that although the Codes of Alabama are being BLATANTLY VIOLATED, no one is willing to help us because we are average Americans born with BLACK SKIN.

    Thus, at this juncture in America, I find it hard, nearly impossible to believe in an American DREAM.

    My family has endured the most unusual set of circumstances. Our aged and mentally ill mother was summoned to Court. Prior to the trial, it was noted that she was suffering from Alzheimer’s’ disease. Judge McDermott, not a medical doctor, determined that she was mentally fit to stand trial. This is a violation of: (1) his oath of office, (2) a blatant violation of our mother’s due process rights, and (3) the Codes of Alabama. As a result, we have lost a major portion of our property due to this judge’s participation in the intrinsic fraud that was perpetuated within the Court, during the trial. We teach our children, and it is understood that our judicial system is designed to ensure of justice and equity for all Americans, regardless of the COLOR OF THEIR SKIN – and/or, their ETHNICITY.

    The persons[he] conspired with have: (1) committed extrinsic fraud upon the Court, (2) presented fraudulent documents to the Court – the Court accepted [them] without question because the person presenting them are Anglo-Americans; and (3) they have committed perjury in open court numerous times.

    Furthermore, these persons in conjunction with the City of Satsuma, Alabama (Mobile County) are forcing us, under color of law, into ENTERING THE BACK OF OUR HOME. All of the family’s services, including the U.S. mail, are rendered at the BACK OF OUR HOME.

    Mr. Maurice Kirk Harless, the grandson of the late James “Buck Harless” of Gilbert West Virginia, committed FRAUD upon the court and perjury to gain title to our property. Prior to his taking our aged and mentally ill mother to court, he nor the others involved in the FRAUD had never been on or in possession of our family’s heir property. Mr. Maurice Kirk Harless, a Mobile Realtor built the “Gilbert Creek Subdivision” in Satsuma on the property that he stole from our family.

    His deed states that Hildreth Drive is to be left open for us, the heirs of John Hilliard, to access the FRONT of our HOME, contrary to the law, [he] or someone working on his behalf did the following :
    (1) closed the road to the FRONT of our HOME,
    (2) cut a TRAIL BEHIND our HOME as our only means of access,
    (3) illegally moved our USPS residential mailbox and placed it BEHIND our HOME,
    (4) The City of Satsuma mailed us a letter, assigning us a supposed [legal] ADDRESS TO
    THE BACK of our HOMEand,
    (5) We have been threatened, that if we call the POLICE AGAIN, WE WILL BE
    ARRESTED.
    My brother and I cut the underbrush out of what is left of the road to the front our home, (pride of ownership, right) and now we are being charged with trespass.

    A Section 1983 lawsuit was filed against Mr. Maurice Kirk Harless, the grandson of the late James “Buck Harless” of Gilbert, West Virginia, and the city of Satsuma, but recently, we were informed that all of these charges have been dropped.

    In this Section 1983 case, Mr. Harless is counter-claiming trespass against us for cutting the underbrush in the road that has provided access to the FRONT of our HOME for more than one-hundred-years. This road, according to the Codes of Alabama, is an established easement. It has been in existence and use for the statutory period of time to be considered a “Dedicated Roadway”.
    In our present day society, one would naturally question, “How can one human treat another in this manner? .. ???

    The Mobile court said that we cannot litigate this issue again, that we may not like it, and that we just have to accept this subservient treatment. For this reason, someone needs to sue the state of Alabama, Mobile County, the City of Satsuma and Mr. Maurice Kirk Harless (the grandson of the late James “Buck” Harless) for forcing my family, under color of law, into ENTERING THE BACK OF OUR HOME because of the color of our skin, we are African Americans.
    Having to access our home and property from the BACK is a THROW BACK to the days of Jim Crow – this treatment of my family is like an act of the DEVIL embodied in the flesh. Who in this day and age (intelligence, technology, and multicultural society) would ever conjure up, or even think of treating another human being in this manner, unless [they] see us as less than human, less than American, less than a creation of God.

    Under these circumstances, we are Blessed to have soundness of mind. The FRAUD and atrocity is being perpetuated against us because of the COLOR OF OUR SKIN is almost unbearable. We are African Americans.

    Today, I thought, the irony of it all.

    The upcoming trial is against us for trespassing the in the road that has provided access to the FRONT of our home for more than one hundred years. The trespass supposedly occurred when we cut the underbrush out of what is left of the roadway to the front of our home.
    This roadway has been used by the public at large, to include our U. S. mail delivery. Now, our U.S. mail delivery is BEHIND our home.

    Therefore, we are being sued (1) by the persons who fraudulently stole our property, (2) who have illegally closed the entry to the front of or home, (3) who have in essence has put us into an encampment – a privacy fence (blocks the road to the front of our homes) separates us from the newly built subdivision, (4) who are making us receive all of our services in an subservient manner – at our BACK DOOR, and (5) all because of the color of our skin.

    This treatment of my family has to be the most atrocious, brazen and conscious shocking thing that has happen to any American family in recent times by public and elected officials.
    The most difficult aspect of this situation is that it is wrong, and it appears that no one can (or will) do anything to rectify the wrong, not even our justice system. WHY? ? ?

    I wish that I could just let it go, but…..
    Please pray for me, as I am tempted to ….,
    This atrocity it helps me to understand why some people do unthinkable acts.

  2. Has anyone noticed in the video clip…the officer that shot him never once put his hand to his face. Nor the the other officer even give him a glance. If his face was swollen or somehow injured, he would have been putting his hands to his face.
