Michael Brown’s Mother, Grandmother And Relatives Melee In Street Over T-Shirt Sales


Photo from Gateway Pundit

From the “you can’t make this stuff up” section of Americana, it seems that all is not peaceful or agreed upon among Michael Brown’s family.

His mother, Leslie McSpadden, has requested that Brown’s image and memory not be used for  self-serving business and profit purposes.  Brown’s grandmother and at least one cousin disagree.  From Fox 2 News:

It happened Saturday night, October 18th, at about 8:15 pm in the parking lot of Red’s BBQ.  It`s the corner of Canfield and West Florissant, just blocks from where Michael Brown was shot and killed.


Police sources tell us Brown`s Grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, along with Brown`s Cousin Tony Petty, were selling t-shirts and other Michael Brown merchandise.


A police report describes a car pulling up and several people getting out.  One of those people, was reported to be Michael Brown`s Mom, Lesley McSpadden.  A witness described McSpadden yelling ‘You can`t sell this s%$&”  One of the relatives, who was selling, reportedly demanded McSpadden show a document proving she had a patent.

A patent…okay, well, whatever documentation Grandmama and the relatives needed, is beside the point.  There was a street brawl that evening that resulted in the cousin, Tony Petty, being hit so hard in the face by McSpadden (Brown’s mother) that he was taken to a local hospital.  Then, supposedly McSpadden took off with not just some merchandise and other assorted SWAG, but the cash box.

Surrveilance video appearantly picked up the altercation and has not been released yet.

Forget the protesters, this is getting good.

    Says the complete moron with “Haters Gone Hate” in his avatar signature!

  6. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:26 AM |

    Actually, it’s their nigger nature. They don’t learn anything except how to be more of a nigger in the pavement congo they terrorize and claim ownership over.

  7. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:25 AM |

    “Weez” needs a tripz back to the Africas! (so that America can recover from these heinous pieces of shit)

  8. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:24 AM |

    That’s because they ARE animals. Look at the features of a gorilla, and then look at the everyday nigger. They are in the pavement congo instead of the jungle. That’s the only difference.

  9. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:21 AM |

    I expected Al Sharpton to roll up with the mother and demand his cut from the money box, too.

  10. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:21 AM |

    Niggers cause riots, Evelyn. They have no interest in stopping them. It lets them “express” their savagery.

  11. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:18 AM |

    Duh! Because they’re niggers. It’s what they DO. And don’t feel bad, because they’re really not humans. They can interbreed, but other than that, they’re animals through and through. I’m not religious, but even in your bibles you see stories about niggers being evil and destructive (Caananites). They’ve always been monsters. African isn’t a “persuasion”, it’s a walking degenerative disease and curse!

  12. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:16 AM |

    That’s typical nigger behavior though. Did anyone really expect them to have white or asian class? Blacks (savages) “ain’t got time fo dat.”

  13. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:14 AM |

    “din do nuffin officuh! dey racest cops jus bee pickin on duh black peepholes!”

  14. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:13 AM |

    Niggers. Can’t you read? You’re excused.

  15. Unnamed_Biologist | 11/02/2014 at 4:09 AM |


  16. Thank you!!!!

  17. Excuse me?

  18. Y’all sound plain ignorant. That man did not have to kill him!!!!! Police been killing black people since the beginning of time. Our lives matter to. How would y’all feel if they were killing white men. People have disagreements that’s what family do. The problem is she can’t grieve in peace having to deal with shit like this.

  25. Mark Jackson | 10/31/2014 at 4:07 AM |

    From the “Never Let A Good Tragedy Go To Waste” Department…Make a buck however you can…I wonder if the State and IRS will check this small business and make sure they’re paying state sales taxes and declaring the income they’re making ?

  28. Billie Carnes | 10/30/2014 at 11:37 PM |

    Did they have permits to sell these was the proper taxes paid so that everything was legal or were they illegally selling shirts and not paying taxes I say that they should be fined and or face the consequences for insiting a riot amongst the people and being a public neusents

  29. Diane Fox | 10/30/2014 at 2:34 PM |

    What cracks me up is that the media tries to pain Brown like some friggin boy scout! The dude was a slime ball banger
    1 Good riddance!!

    If this had been the Sarah Palin family it would have had the first 10 minutes on the evening news with Brainless Williams.

  34. How many surnames are in this family?

  35. ManOverboard | 10/30/2014 at 10:16 AM |

    None of them have the same last name. Start there.

  36. Bobby Woodlawn | 10/30/2014 at 9:44 AM |


  37. I wonder if Thuggery is genetic??

  38. disqus_DP5Go5b2BP | 10/30/2014 at 9:37 AM |

    Why would she grab the money box and run off with it if she’s not interested in profiting from this?

  39. The silent majority | 10/30/2014 at 7:23 AM |

    This is sad!! I feel for the loss of A human being without a doubt that is sad!! BUT it looks like all the evidence is pointing to the kid being at fault. from the video of him robbing a store,to all the forensic evidence,I think the cop was justified.. but what I don’t understand is why certain people of the African persuasion have to riot loot,break in stores,destroy things, cause damage,make death threats if they don’t get what they want.. What ever happened to thee due process of law before all the evidence and everything is even out there right away user looting destroying robbing stores making death threats going crazy automatically assuming just because he’s black he was killed because of race what do you think the rest of the world thinks? Do you see any other race doing the things that you do?

    How funny would it be if people looted the t-shirts while the family riot was going on!

  42. cslagenhop | 10/30/2014 at 4:32 AM |

    Will they accept EBT at the t-shirt table?

  43. Dremple Wade | 10/30/2014 at 3:49 AM |

    Let me guess…the COPS were bought in to break it up? I know its wrong, but this is Sadly Entertaining. Like a Car wreck, don’t want to look but the FORCE is STRONG in this DISASTER

  44. Dennis Griffin | 10/30/2014 at 3:42 AM |

    Sad sad sad but not surprising at a time when a family should be grieving and honoring the memory of a loved one they are rolling around in the street fighting over who gits to sell T-shirts ! Dear ol mom is most likely mad cause granny beat her to the punch makin a dollar off of her son ! The people of Ferguson and St. Louis should not waste another minute of time or effort on these thugs ! But unfortunately once the verdict clearing officer Wilson is read there will be rioting in the streets like nobodies business I hope I am wrong but sadly most likely not .

  45. The thug didn’t fall far from the tree, did it?

  46. flamengo1265 | 10/27/2014 at 10:24 PM |

    Mike Brown’s mom: YOU CAN’T SELL THAT !!!! ……. but, on second thought, I’ll take the cash.

  47. JamalJenkum | 10/27/2014 at 7:59 PM |

    Well this pretty much cinches the case. The Brown ‘family’ are just violent thugs. It should be very simple now to have Ofc. Wilson completely exonerated from any wrongdoing whatsoever.

    in the meantime, on what day and time will she be turning over the gross receipts from the T-Shirt sales to pay for some of the things that were looted in her ‘babys’ name ? And how much is Darren Wilson’s cut. After all, her son would never be famous if it weren’t for the good works of Ofc. Wilson!

  48. Tim McCarthy | 10/27/2014 at 11:12 AM |

    He was such a good boy w/good role models surrounding him.

  49. Tninches | 10/27/2014 at 1:12 AM |

    We now know what is going to take Honey Boo Boo’s place! They should at least do a Thanksgiving special! Get them all in one room with food and forks and knives. Sweet!

    Phucking animals

  51. Groid digger | 10/26/2014 at 7:00 PM |

    Sience beez raysis. Brown was killed, and his skin was black. Therefore, Brown = victim. Thanks a lot, Nancy Grace. You ugly stupid b1tch.

  52. Groid digger | 10/26/2014 at 6:50 PM |

    Lol subhuman savage beasts… This story says it all. Trayvon and Brown got what they deserved. The good old ventilation treatment to cure the over groid-ance of their areas of town. “gentle giant” my a$$. More to come, brought to you by rap “music” and malt liquor.

  53. David Mangum | 10/26/2014 at 5:08 PM |


  54. wtf… What are people thinking these days. Rioters are just trying to get their names in the papers and if the media does it they are crazy.

  55. De'Marquise Elkins | 10/26/2014 at 1:21 PM |


  56. You hit the nail on the head there. The are a bunch of ignorant thugs living off of our tax dollars

  57. Bob Oh Mighty | 10/26/2014 at 12:10 PM |

    No the one word is niggers.

  58. De'Marquise Elkins | 10/26/2014 at 11:47 AM |

    Looks like they are filming Hood Life Volume 4 in Ferguson.

  59. Pavanne Halpin | 10/26/2014 at 8:23 AM |

    Um…why are people saying she is the one selling stuff. Did anyone read the article. The other relatives and grandma are doing it. She told them no and got upset when they wouldn’t stop. Geesh…read.

  60. Jason Rekart | 10/26/2014 at 6:33 AM |

    It is sad that this young man is dead even if it is justified. What these people are doing in Ferguson isn’t justice for Mike Brown it is for total disrespect for authority , how is destroying and doing all this crap respecting the dead, it isn’t. This is just an act of people that feel sorry for themselves because they are black and cant succeed in life. Well guess what there are plenty of succesful black people, what they did was get out of bed, put the weed down and worked,,, yes that’s right worked, these people in Ferguson are destroying there own community, i say quit showing them attention and let the animals play!!!

  61. RedNeckHippie | 10/26/2014 at 3:09 AM |

    LOL! Good One!

  62. joeisthebest999 | 10/26/2014 at 3:06 AM |

  63. RedNeckHippie | 10/26/2014 at 3:04 AM |

    The whole family in nothing but thugs.

  66. John Ingrum | 10/24/2014 at 9:25 PM |

    What a bunch of uneducated hoodrats! But the baby boy was an angel. Ha! Apple didn’t fall far from the tree. The whole family has a rap sheet, I’m sure. Mikey didn’t even live with the mother, if you can even call her that. She has some other man. His father, I mean sperm donor, lives with some other woman. Punk lived with Granny, who was also involved in the altercation last Sat. They are just looking for a payday off their dead thug sons death.

  67. Her boy took after Mom,

  68. Sh*ts getting old! Uuuuhhhhh

  69. DougDeGrave | 10/24/2014 at 2:37 PM |

    The APEple Needs to be sent back to the trees.

  70. The mother had the right to sell or not to sell. Without her permission, they should have never sold a thing.

  71. You can dress them better, give them words to say, but at the end of the day these people are just trashy ghetto slime. They have spent their whole lives fighting and breeding, all the perfume in the world will not cover the stink of entitlement on this family.

  72. LandofDave | 10/24/2014 at 10:41 AM |

  73. piper1961 | 10/24/2014 at 7:48 AM |

    What a F-ing joke…so distraught over their baby boys death that they have to sell t-shirts? And then fight over selling them?????

  74. AfricanAtlantian | 10/24/2014 at 4:22 AM |

  80. Ezekiel Bandini | 10/23/2014 at 11:53 PM |

    Just send in the National Guard and start blasting away if they refuse to settle down. They are breaking the law and that is a fact! They need to PAY for their lawlessness. America needs to know that we are all safe from would-be lunatics like them!

  81. Ezekiel Bandini | 10/23/2014 at 11:50 PM |

    I wonder if you have to show you are smoking weed and willing to assault an armed police officer in order to wear one of those “I AM MICHAEL BROWN” T-Shirts?


  92. Eidh eidu | 10/23/2014 at 5:05 PM |

    Holy shit, you do nt have a fucking CLUE what a patent is. Also, cool off in the number of ads in your shitty shite. Dumb fuck.

  93. Kristen Carol Kidd | 10/23/2014 at 4:44 PM |

    And the award for “Best Comment” goes to ^^^^

  94. Wees can’t be following no white mens laws, wees be angry cuz da white mens laws!!!

  95. Similar to the Duncan family looking to cash in on the EBOLA death….

    Typical, looking for a lottery win off of a tragedy…

  96. Larry J Dunster Sr | 10/23/2014 at 4:34 PM |

    those are our nations laws and if you don’t like them you are free to leave the USA and go where ever you want.We are a nation of laws for everyone and those laws do not have a color

  97. …typical black culture values

    …violence in the home, violence in the streets, violence on others’ private property, violence on government property, violence perpetrated on white’s, violence aired on TV….

    Some wonder if Jim Crow was on to something???

    These “people” truly do not understand Christian values, do not understand civil behavior…

    This “black culture” of rage is even beliw the rage and hatred of Muslims…

    No wonder so many black felons while in jail join the Black Muslim Brotherhood…

    The values of both cultures encourages violence on family and all through society that these cultures reject.

  98. Larry J Dunster Sr | 10/23/2014 at 4:30 PM |

    It’s far from dead the rioters will never accept the evidence and will riot some more and then we will see some blood shed and it might really turn out nasty.I hope I’m wrong,we can do nothing more than wait and see

  99. Greed!

  100. my3kidsmom | 10/23/2014 at 3:42 PM |

    I still say the officer should file a lawsuit for slander and defamation of character. The family is making money off of implying that he murdered someone. That cash box that Brown’s mother took should go (at least partly) to Officer Wilson.

  101. Phylsingleton Phylsingleton | 10/23/2014 at 3:11 PM |

    And they wonder why their precious innocent thug got himself killed. Learned his behavior at home apparently.

  102. What mother? You mean the woman whoop have birth to him? The experiences I’ve had with the nogs that run around my neighborhood is that their mothers allow them to run wild until God forbid you ask them not to call your eight year old daughter a f’ing Bitch then they wanna fight like a animals.

  103. Joe shit the rag man | 10/23/2014 at 3:09 PM |


  104. nascar8de | 10/23/2014 at 3:00 PM |

    unfortunately I wish I could agree as far as the story being dead here we are discussing what is going in the media so its alive and strong, its on the news every morning. The cop was doing his job PERIOD, there are things about his youth and being charged for murder at the age of 15 but hey that sealed that fast which is against the law. But they are doing as they please.

  105. My thoughts exactly!!

  106. SamuelThomas | 10/23/2014 at 2:12 PM |

    A patent!?! LOL What a bunch of morons.

  107. Marvin Douglas | 10/23/2014 at 2:09 PM |

    Proves what kinda people they really are! Huh !

  108. Melanie Schielder | 10/23/2014 at 1:44 PM |

    oh they already have all the evidence, it’s been processed, they found Browns blood and one finger print on the interior of the police car, from the way the bullets entered and exited his body, he was not 10 feet away with his arms raised, nor was he running away, the holes have gun shot residue and stippling burns around the bullet holes, and even a shot to the top of his head because he was leaning over into the car reaching for the cops gun, proof is there, I think they are waiting till after the elections to give out the news, though with how the media is, there is no story for them to feast over anymore, they can’t call the cop a racist killer because the media knows about the proof of evidence, that’s why the story is pretty much dead now in the media

  109. They seem like lovely people. I hope they keep breeding. God Bless America.

  110. Is that a Buick Grand National in the background? All these relatives and nobody has the same last name!

  111. Jeff Traube | 10/23/2014 at 1:13 PM |

    Looks like the Ferguson police may yet be able to prosecute a family member for assault and robbery

  112. Jeffro Bodine Farkas | 10/23/2014 at 1:04 PM |

    Blacks will be Blacks in da Hood!

  113. Keli Grantham Steadham | 10/23/2014 at 12:48 PM |


  114. Hmmmm, why would I want to be Mike Brown? He is dead and well deserved! What law abiding citizen goes for a police officer’s gun? These idiots prove that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Stupid is as stupid does.

  115. greywulf1064 | 10/23/2014 at 12:34 PM |

    I feel…nothing for these people

  116. msVickiFlorida | 10/23/2014 at 12:30 PM |

    Hilarious. I hope someone filmed it. They are just following their mentor, Sabrina Fulton, Traygone’s mother. Trayvons Foundation is raking in the money for Jackson and Sharpton.

  117. Steven B. | 10/23/2014 at 12:23 PM |

    CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THAT VIDEO ON “WORLD STAR HIPHOP” It’ll fit right in with the rest of the hood-rat fight’s

  118. Don Briscoe | 10/23/2014 at 12:22 PM |

    This is hilarious, this thugs family are rioting over who gets the money from his t-shirt sales, wow! What class,this is probably the first and only legal dollar the thug ever provided for this “family” and they are beating each other up like a bunch of crows fighting over road kill.

  119. mary witte | 10/23/2014 at 12:22 PM |

    violence,greed,thieft and lies and that’s MBs family.Im still trying to figure out why grandma didn’t stop and pick him up when she saw him walking down the middle of the street. Boy I thought my family was dysfunctional

  120. nascar8de | 10/23/2014 at 12:17 PM |

    EXACTLY!!!!! As she stood there and stated she didnt want to make money off her Gentle Giant my ASS… but I have to say she has a good right hook LMAO!!!! Everything comes out in the wash it will all come out not through the media but a average sleuth looking for info will let us know!!! Its already not looking good for the fool. If they all had job and not live off welfare they would need sleep for the next day, but nope let that POS gives them their entitlements and has his thugs go down there and take care of business, ha slap you POS in your flippin face. SO DONE!!!!!

  121. debbie smith | 10/23/2014 at 12:15 PM |

    Just proves low class GHETTO Family with a smig of VIOLENCE, the same act that got her son killed by a police officer, she administered to her NEPHEW. Classy really classy!!!!

    What ? ! not to cheat,steal or lie ? How do you think the pResident attained that office ?

  126. Mike Browns family taught him to be a thug just like them, to bad Obama is to busy raping the Constitution to stand up and act a leader to the country and teach people to respect and help one another rather than steal, cheat and lie!

  127. THOSE ARE white man laws!
