From the Author
"The public outcry for social justice and growing anti-police sentiments have ignited violence and turmoil not only in the St. Louis area, but across our country. I believe proper communication of the truth could have prevented much of the destruction. It is my hope that this book reveals the need for truth and transparency from leaders, media and bystanders who harness the power of the internet at their fingertips."

We now know, based on forensics, bystander testimony, grand jury and US Justice Department investigations, that all the initial assumptions were wrong, that the rush to judgment by the news media, White House, Justice Department and Civil Rights organizations was based on lies. Author Ken Dye, a former homicide detective in the St. Louis County Police Department, has done a masterful job of detailing the truth. All the evidence is in his book--forensics, eyewitness testimony, statements and reports. Bottom line: Michael Brown robbed a convenience store and attacked Officer Wilson.
And yet, in spite of all this evidence, the name Ferguson is still used as a rallying cry for those who want to believe the men in blue is the enemy. Worse, we have yet to hear apologies from reporters, the White House or the Justice Department for perpetuating this lie. Shame on all them for jumping to conclusions before the evidence was in. Shame on them for destroying the reputation of an honest cop. And thanks to Ken Dye for setting the record straight!
The blame is placed where it belongs on MICHAEL BROWN JR. and his decisions!
Honestly this book accurately describes, in great detail what happened and why, far more comprehensive than the DOJ review.
