While browsing through Facebook this evening, I came across a video that claimed to show Mike Brown of Ferguson fame beating the hell out of a defenseless old man. It was disgusting and sickening to watch. He beat the man several times while his friends not only watched but one actually joined in.

Everyone stood around and did absolutely nothing. The victim eventually got up and staggered off. After sharing the video on Facebook, I did the same over on Twitter.

Imagine my shock when someone replied to the post about the video.

 

The person posted a Youtube link demonstrating that the person in the video MAY NOT be Mike Brown. It is clear by comparing both videos that the man in the original video may be someone else entirely.

To date, nobody has come forward explaining who made the video, how the original poster obtained the video and what steps were taken to fact check the video.

As someone who has been the victim of similar false accusations, I should have known better than to take the original video at face value. I apologize to those who took that video at face value because I chose to believe it as authentic when posting it.

Stay tuned
