Thugs rob 6 people in ‘name of Michael Brown’ (Video)

Wherever slain Ferguson, Mo., teen Michael Brown is, do you suppose he is smiling beneficently on six robberies that were carried out in St. Louis on Saturday in his memory? According to Station KMOV:

Police say two thieves robbed six people … Saturday night and said “This is for Mike Brown” before fleeing the scene.

According to investigators, the six victims, whose ages range from 59-61, were leaving a restaurant and walking north on Mississippi when the two suspects approached them. One suspect pulled out a gun and the other demanded the victim’s property.

The victims complied and the suspects fled the scene.

One of the suspects is described as a black male with a thin build, 18-25 years old, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and wearing a white tank top, blue jeans, and medium length braids or twisties, and armed with a silver handgun. The second suspect is a black male, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall, wearing all black clothing and a black ski mask.

The notion that somehow armed robbery is a tribute to the dead makes about as much sense as looting in the name of the slain teen.
