What does George Soros, Michael Brown and Ferguson, Missouri have in common? Justice. That’s right, justice has been given to all three parties that have been involved within this incident. Back in 2014, a young 18-year-old black man named Michael Brown was killed by a former Missouri police officer named Darren Wilson.
On August 9, 2014 video surveillance captured Michael Brown stealing cigarillos from a convenience store and assaulting a store clerk. The Grand Jury in the Michael Brown case has this information as evidence and it cannot be denied. The Department of Justice also confirms this evidence as well. Michael Brown was accompanied by his friend Dorian Johnson when this situation happened. Learn more about his profile at forbes.com
Officer Darren Wilson was on duty during the morning when this robbery had taken place. He was given information about the crime from the Missouri police department dispatch and he was given description of the suspects. Eventually, Wilson knew where to find the suspects and he came across both of them while they traveled back to Johnson’s home.
Long story short, Wilson stopped the suspects. An altercation ensued. Brown went for Wilson’s gun but he did not get it. During this altercation, a shot was fired. The suspects managed to get away and then fled. Wilson pursued them. Wilson caught up with Brown. He then fired on Brown when the young man refused to stop coming toward him. Brown ended up dying from the altercation.
While it was clear that Brown and Dorian broke the law by stealing the items from a local convenience store; the fatal shooting of Brown was something that many black people and supporters of equality where upset about. Once again, the police department was seen as persecutors of black people within this situation. The black community was extremely angry with Wilson’s actions because many people who witnessed the incident claimed that Brown had his hands up at the time of death.
George Soros had been watching this situation very closely as it unfolded. He immediately realized what was happening when he saw the outrage that black people were feeling behind the death of Michael Brown. He had to mobilize people to get them out to protest this situation. George Soros knows that the treatment of black minorities by the police force is something that is systematically wrong within the American justice system.

Michael Brown, the people of Ferguson and George Soros all received justice when it was ruled that the Ferguson police department has been known for unjust practices against minorities. Soros and the groups that he supports are now working harder to eliminate police oppression against the black community all throughout the U.S.
