Media files lawsuits seeking Michael Brown's Juvenile Records

 I heard this saying the other day: "Evil is Intelligent". Something to ponder. The article also reveals the investigation of the Family Court in St. Louis County for Constitutional violations of Juveniles! Shouldn't that really be a story in itself instead of trying to dig up dirt on a victim, purely to "victim-blame"?


Lingering questions about Michael Brown could be answered Wednesday when a judge considers two media requests to release any possible juvenile records of the unarmed 18-year-old who was killed by a Missouri police officer last month.

Juvenile records are confidential in Missouri, so it’s not definitively known if Brown was arrested before he legally became an adult. Police have said Brown had no adult criminal record. The family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump, has refused to discuss whether Brown had a juvenile record.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and a California online journalist have filed separate petitions in St. Louis County Family Court to determine whether Brown had past legal trouble. Both cite an overriding public right to know Brown’s background after his shooting death by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson sparked more than a week of sometimes-violent protests and drew international scrutiny.

The more basic argument boils down to the question of whether Brown’s privacy rights extend beyond the grave.
