After a protester from the Ferguson riots – one that had been photographed throwing a tear gas grenade back at police – was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Missouri Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal advanced the theory that police might have killed him. Two women were in the car at the time, but that doesn’t seem to have stopped the Senator from her theory.
Edward Crawford Jr and two women were in the same car. The two women told police that Crawford was upset about “personal matters,” then rummaged around in the back seat for something. He then shot himself in the head. An autopsy will attempt to determine whether it was an accidental discharge or suicide. But the two witnesses made the situation very clear.
Yet Senator Chappelle-Nadal and her followers feel it was murder.
The problem is that there were several Ferguson activists/rioters that were found dead in cars, which simply fuels Chappelle-Nadal’s theory that it was a “police hit squad.”
