This story is so bizarre it very nearly defies belief.

Saturday night, Michael Brown's grandma ("Pearlie") was in the parking lot of a local eatery selling T-shirts with Michael Brown's picture. Grandma Pearlie was out there with one of Michael Brown's cousins.

According to this story (link below), a car pulled up and out steps Michael Brown's mama, Ms. McSpadden, who starts screaming at Grandma, "You can't sell this *&$^."

Grandma says, "Show me your patent."

So that's when one of Mama's good friends gets out of the car and decides to use a metal pipe on the cousin's head, injuring him so severely that he required hospitalization.

Even more incredibly, "no arrests have been made."

Police investigating assault and theft following argument between Brown family relatives | FOX2now.com

The police report says that`s when an unidentified person with McSpadden assaulted Petty so violently that it resulted in a 911 call. A witness tells Fox 2 that the weapon was a metal pipe or pole. The suspect reportedly struck Petty in the face. Medics then took him to Christian Northeast Hospital. The witness said the assault suspect grabbed merchandise and a box of cash believed to contain about $1,400.

It appears surveillance cameras could have captured the fight and be part of police evidence. Police report no arrests at this time.

It was on a legitimate news site, so yes, I do believe it.

What does it have to do with making the city better? Gives you a little insight into Michael Brown's home life, and explains a little about his evolution and character development (or lack thereof).

Just confirms that Michael Brown and his family are trash and thugs. Obvious from the first but they just keep proving it.

That wasn't McSpadden's mother that was selling the stuff,was it?
Wasn't it the In-laws? If my In-laws were making money off the death of my son I probably would have given them a metal pipe shampoo too.

It was Grammy selling merchandise with MB's image and likeness.

Mama Brown didn't like Grammy selling MB's stuff, so he had her goons (seated in the car) exit said car with metal pipe.

Yes, this type of thing happens ALL THE TIME at my family gatherings...

What kind of family tries to make money (by selling tee shirts) by exploiting the death of a family member?

No different than selling Michael Jackson memorabilia or souvenirs from Graceland, or tickets to see where someone's grave is located.
No different than using the notes of an author and writing using her name like the children of V.C. Andrews did, how about using your name that was made famous by those before you to get into acting like the
Hemingway girls.
