Charles C. Johnson, a vile, lying scumbag and twitter troll, is suing for Michael Brown’s juvenile arrest records. In fact, just recently he was assured by “two law enforcement contacts” that one existed –and one of the charges “involved second degree murder.” Unfortunately for Chucky, that story was about as accurate as Jim Hoft’s much-repeated claim that Brown had fractured Officer Darren Wilson’s eye socket.
On Wednesday, a Missouri court official confirmed that Brown was not convicted, as has been widely claimed, of any Class A or Class B felonies as a juvenile, and was not facing charges for any serious crimes when he died. But, of course, if you ask Johnson:
The court is still deciding whether or not to release the records, but officials told the Post-Dispatch, which joined Johnson’s blog in its quest to uncover irrelevant factoids that could be used to offset the increasing difficulty with which those who desperately need to smear the teenager are faced, that Brown’s “criminal record,” if it exists, did not include anything serious:
Cynthia Harcourt, a lawyer for St. Louis County Juvenile Officer Kip Seeley, argued against releasing those records, but acknowledged there were no convictions for the most serious types of felonies.
After the hearing, she told the Post-Dispatch Brown was not facing any serious felony charges when he died. Class A felonies include second-degree murder and first-degree robbery; the penalties in adult court range from 10 years in prison to death. Class B felonies include voluntary manslaughter, second-degree robbery and first-degree burglary, with a maximum penalty of five to 15 years.
Johnson’s lawsuit, of course, references the supposed “second-degree murder” rap.
Conservatives’ repeated attempts to demonize the young man who was gunned down in the street by Officer Wilson continue to fall flat — but not before spreading like wildfire across right-wing sites.
Johnson has been a source of much right-wing delusion surrounding Brown — from rumors that Brown was a member of the “Crips” gang, to a fantasy that he was driving with an expired license (like that is related, anyway).
Johnson attempted to hide his shame, portraying himself as a truth-seeker rather than a vile racist searching in desperation for something — anything — with which he can justify his narrative:
