    Mrs. Brown is facing strong arm robbery charges after leading a group of people to attack a street vendor with pipes. The vendor was selling t-shirts that said Justice for Michael Brown. She wasn’t getting a cut so she wanted then gone. They stold $1,500 dollars worth of merchandise and robbed the vender of $400 dollars that he had on his person.

    Don’t be afraid of the truth Timekeeper.
