The democratic presidential candidates Sens. Kamala Harris in California, and Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts to take the heat from fact-checkers for the use of the white officer fatally Michael Brown shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri, five years ago, “killed” the black teenager.

“Harris, Warren is Wrong About Brown shooting”, read a headline on Monday of the non-profit website

Washington Post Fact-Checker Glenn Kessler on Monday, both senators awarded four pinocchios on their claims.


Harris and Warren’s comments were made last week as the Democratic presidential candidates marked the five-year anniversary of the unrest in Ferguson after the controversial shooting of brown.

In a tweet on Friday wrote to Harris: “Michael Brown’s murder forever changed Ferguson and America. His tragic death sparked a much needed conversation and a national movement. We need to fight for more accountability and racial justice in our legal system.”

Warren tweeted that “5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed, yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers, who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We need to confront systemic racism and police violence on the head.”

But the fact of control, said the evidence in the case contradicts the comments of Harris and Warren: Three months after the shooting, a grand jury decided not to indict Wilson.

9. August 2014, the shooting of the unarmed Brown national headlines dominated five years ago, igniting protests and riots in Ferguson.

Protesters charged that Brown had his hands raised in the air before he was shot several times by Wilson, as Ferguson became the national symbol of racial bias by law enforcement authorities. But while the sentence “hands, don’t shoot high,” was formed after the shooting, has found the Ministry of justice investigations at the time no evidence that Brown’s hands were up.

At the same time, the city police faced allegations of racism and racist policing of the community, and the Ministry of justice biased said it discovered a widespread systemic patterns of racial exploitation and profiling of the city, the black residents of the Ferguson Police Department.
