After a racially mixed grand jury wisely refused to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, the street thug's stepfather Louis Head took to his soap box outside the police station with repeated calls to "burn this motherfucker down" and "burn this bitch down."
Ferguson police now are investigating whether Head's apparent exhortations were an unlawful attempt to incite a riot as reported by KMOX: "violent protests broke out following the decision, as dozens of buildings and businesses were looted and set fire."
The investigation into Head's vile comments are part of a wider probe into the degenerate lawlessness by so-called protestors as reported by The New York Times:
"The investigation includes multiple arsons, robberies, destruction of properties and larcenies," Officer Shawn McGuire, a department spokesman, said in an email. "The statements made by Louis Head are also under investigation. When the investigation is completed, our department will forward everything to the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney's office."
Charles Barkley aptly characterizes the rioters as "scumbags," and the NBA great agrees with the grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Wilson as reported by CNN:
In an interview with CNN's Brooke Baldwin on Tuesday, Barkley repeatedly came back to one point: He doesn't believe that white cops are out to shoot black people because of racism. "That's ridiculous," he said.
Meanwhile, Brown's mother Lesley McSpadden is under investigation for her alleged role in an assault and robbery against other family members who were selling Brown swag as reported by KTVI.
