Missouri Senator Promotes Theory That Cops are Killing Ferguson Protesters

After a protester from the Ferguson riots – one that had been photographed throwing a tear gas grenade back at police – was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Missouri Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal advanced the theory that police might have killed him. Two women were in the car at the time, but that doesn’t seem to have stopped the Senator from her theory.

Edward Crawford Jr and two women were in the same car. The two women told police that Crawford was upset about “personal matters,” then rummaged around in the back seat for something. He then shot himself in the head. An autopsy will attempt to determine whether it was an accidental discharge or suicide. But the two witnesses made the situation very clear.

Yet Senator Chappelle-Nadal and her followers feel it was murder.

Where did she get this weird theory?

The problem is that there were several Ferguson activists/rioters that were found dead in cars, which simply fuels Chappelle-Nadal’s theory that it was a “police hit squad.”

Three of them died in similar fashion – shot to death and left in a burning vehicle. Darren Seals was found shot to death inside a burned car in 2016, and DeAndre Joshua was found in the exact same manner in 2014 just after the Grand Jury failed to indict Officer Wilson. Another man Antonio Jones was also found shot to death in a burning vehicle in November of 2014. Police have not found the perpetrator(s), which is creating even more conspiracy ideas.

The answer could be anything- speculation like theirs only makes things murkier, and keeps the anti-police hate alive.

Chappelle- Nadal is a reckless excuse for a “senator.” She was actually arrested during the Ferguson protests for carrying a loaded gun. Her open stance against police is not helping either her constituents or her race.
