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.
