When a Facebook page called “Police Officers” posts a phony Mike Brown memorial, you know people on both sides are going to come out swinging at each other.
And that’s exactly what happened the the Police Officers Facebook page, with more than 150,000 fans, posted this to it’s page:
The phony Mike Brown memorial reads:
There once was a thug named Brown
Who bum-rushed a cop with a frown
Six bullets later
He met his creator
Then his homies burnt down the town
The response was quick from all sides, with some people taking the strongly anti-police stance:
The Facebook page administrator responded in the comments saying:
Mike Brown chose his path, one that has lead this country into complete divisiveness. He’s not a martyr, he was a thug, who robbed a clerk and then made the adult choice to fight a cop, of which he intended to murder.
Mike Brown and his cronies have been responsible for the perpetuation of a movement founded in thuggery and lies.
At the end of the day, the person truly responsible for the killing of Mike Brown is Mike Brown himself.
However, even fellow law enforcement officers posted their dislike for the message of the post:
Before it was taken down, the post had more than 5,000 likes on Facebook.
