The Investigation Of The Murder Of Joshua Brown Cannot Be Left To Dallas Police By Elie Mystal

White people must think we’re stupid. Black people who work for the police must think so too. The narrative the city of Dallas would have us believe about the murder of Joshua Brown strains credulity to the point of farce. I’d sooner believe extraterrestrials built Epcot Center to prepare us for their arrival than I’d believe the BS coming out of Dallas PD right now.

According to police, Brown was killed in a “drug deal” gone bad. Dallas police have arrested two (of three, they claim) suspects. Police claim that these men drove four hours from Louisiana all the way to Dallas to… buy weed. After shooting Brown (the police didn’t even bother to give a motive for why they allegedly shot him, apparently there are enough dumb people who think that interstate marijuana deals often result in gunfire) these alleged suspects apparently left all the weed AND MONEY behind.

Every single part of this police narrative smells like bull. The only people who drive four hours to buy drugs are freaking wholesalers. You’re telling us that Josh Brown is moving enough product to make three people drive four hours to buy enough drugs to make the trip worth it? You’re FURTHER telling me that Brown is a big time wholesaler, but shows up to to a drug sale BY HIMSELF, when he knows that people are coming all the way from Louisiana. You’re telling me he’s doing all of this ten days after he’s the star witness in a police murder trial?

And, just to think like a lawyer for a second, you’re telling me that a big time drug wholesaler is the star witness for the prosecution and his drug hustle is UNKNOWN to until after the trial? You’re telling me that the prosecution rested its case on the say so of a drug kingpin, and then either didn’t know or somehow hoped that the defense — the COP’S DEFENSE TEAM — would not find out? And you’re further telling me that a bunch of cop and cop lawyers in fact DIDN’T find out and didn’t use Brown’s drug history to impeach his credibility at trial.

You’re telling me that the man who testified against a white cop at a highly publicized murder trial WHILE WEARING A DRAGONBALL-Z T-SHIRT, was actually a drug pusher conducting interstate wholesale operations, and nobody knew about it until he turned up dead?

(That struck me about the case, why would the drug dealers leave the marijuana and the money behind. And how are the police going to get confessions out of these guys?)

3. I avoid conspiracy theories and tend to believe official versions of events in most cases

because in my experience, they're usually (but not always) correct in the end.

But this doesn't even pass MY smell test. It stinks to high heaven.

4. If the Trump era isn't a lesson in false official narratives

I don't know what is, coming after Iraq, with the facts fixed around the policy, as the Downing Street memo aptly put it.

It doesn't take a conspiracy theory to see the value of skepticism in response to official accounts. The egregious examples of betrayed public trust get more numerous daily.

5. Another thing...

I remember seeing mugshots of two of the people they were looking for in connection with this. They were up pretty quick, and I wondered just how they knew who they were so fast. Maybe somebody knows more on that?

This deserves and independent investigation for many reasons.

6. Cop lovers on DU think he got what he deserved

Cuz he’s a young black guy and a “drug dealer” and a thug and no way officer friendly would do this. Cuz officer friendly is brave and protects us. Thugs always get what they deserve. He must have done “something” to deserve it!
