Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, announced Friday that she is running for a seat on the Ferguson, Mo., City Council.

McSpadden made the announcement four years after her son was shot and killed by a white police officer in 2014, an incident that triggered mass protests across the country and served as a major catalyst for the Black Lives Matter movement.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Almost four years ago to this day, I ran down this very street, and my son was covered in a sheet,” McSpadden said in announcing her campaign near where her son died, NBC News reported. “I learned to walk again, and this is one of my first steps.”

McSpadden said she will focus on policing within the community, economic equality and health care during her campaign.

As to questions about her qualifications, McSpadden said, “If a mother had to watch her son lay on the street for four hours, and watch our community be completely disrespected by the people we elected, what would you do? You would stand up and you would fight, too.”

  1. His mother wasn’t even a part of his life. She is ridiculous and a self-serving criminal clown. Now she cares… sure… about herself. Must be running as a Democrat of course.

    • She wasn’t a part of his life other then being his Mother. She never knew where he was or who he was with. He was in with bad crowds and not doing good things. This is what happens when you just let your kids run wild never knowing what they are involved in or with. Then when something happens you’re the dedicated parent. Sorry kids can’t be raised with part time parents.Mike Brown’s mother led her own destructive life with boyfriends.
      As a Mother I know what she is feeling, but her bond with her Son should have been made long before he met death because of wrong doing. I almost feel she feels guilty for what happened to her Son and she has every right to feel that way because she never took the time nor the interest she should have through his growing years.

  2. Where was she for most of his short life? In prison and jail and crooking… She is only concerned about herself.

  3. Funny how she never raised her thug son and rarely saw him, she was busy sleeping around while her thug son bullied people. Then when he rightfully got capped for attacking an officer, she saw dollar signs and fell in love with her love child thug. She and her kind make me puke.

  4. It makes me sick, that on Paramount TV they actually have created a special “documtary” about that teen that was killed by that guy in FL in ‘self defense’. The media kept showing this picture of him when he was like 9 yrs old, and not a teen, a gang banger…its disgusting. how the media wants to stoke the fire, by glamorizing these criminals.

    • Do you remember what Obama said about Trayvon, “If I had son I would want him to be just like Trayvon” hahahahahahahahahahaha, yeah right Obama! Then that Tamir Rice kid, that had taken the orange tip off the end of the look alike gun, that showed it was a pellet or BB gun. Where was momma, because a child that age was supposed to have a parent with him, if he was outside with the gun, she was at home watching TV, while her son was far away in the park, waving the gun around. The media is to blame for a lot of bad things that happen in this country and of course are paid huge sums to feed the fire of DIVISION and eventually will be the cause of the next, this time around bloody and with million losing their lives, Civil War! Remember what Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than a Generation away from Extinction”!!

  5. If she had taught her son to obey the laws and to obey Police commands he might still be alive today.

  6. I agree with all of you. Did anyone else notice the NBC BLK Tweet? NBC doing some butt kissing! Again!

  7. I think people forget that Her son ruined the life and career of a police officer.Where is the Justice for him?

  8. Looks like she is cashing in on her sons bad conduct. It would appear to me that she was not around when he needed supervision, i.e. where was she when he was out the night he was killed? Looks like she is trying to cash in on her sons bad behavior.

  9. Ode to Big Michael Brown…..

    There was a young bully…Named big Michael Brown….Who used his large size, to push others around…He beat on a cop, who then emptied his Glock, put one in Mike’s head, now the bully is dead…….It’s a good thing.

  10. I’m sure CNN and MSDNC are going to eat this up and will be sure not to mention her past, nor how her son was ripping off and assaulting a store owner before his death.
