Unarmed teenager or adult thug?
News outlets continue to portray the man in the Ferguson, Mo., story as "a defenseless unarmed teenager" who was sought out by a vicious, uncontrolled police officer and gunned down.
I had never read or heard the other side of the story from anyone until Charles Barkley spoke out.
Mr. Barkley is a former all-pro basketball player, highly respected throughout the land. I might add for those who do not know, he is black. Charles has, for many years, been known as a man who speaks the truth with conviction.
Never miss a local story.
I am sure that every word he spoke has been recorded by all persons in the news business and is available to the general public. I suggest that everyone seek and find his comments and read the truth about Ferguson, Mo.
