Letter: Why would Michael Brown be the ‘good guy?’

Fifteen minutes before all hell broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, Detective Wilson was at a home with an EMT saving the life of a child. For those who want to make this about race, the child was black.

Fifteen minutes before all hell broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, Michael Brown was ripping off a convenience store, roughing up the owner and then strolling defiantly down the middle of the street under the influence of marijuana.

Can someone explain to me why so many, including the president, the press, and the St. Louis Rams, want to make Michael Brown the “good guy” in this tragedy?
