    So the baby-daddy, the one that told people to burn it down is suing?

    The family of Michael Brown has filed a civil lawsuit against the city of Ferguson under Missouri's "wrongful death statute," family attorney Benjamin Crump said in a statement Thursday.
    The suit seeks punitive and compensatory damages in excess of $75,000, in addition to attorney fees.
    Brown's parents attended a news conference in front of the St. Louis County Courthouse after the suit was filed. His mother, Lesley McSpadden, who wore a red hoodie bearing her son's likeness, and his father, Mike Brown Sr., wearing a St. Louis Cardinals snapback and a hoodie that said, "Mike Brown chosen for change," did not speak, allowing attorneys Anthony Gray and Crump to address reporters.
    In addition to the city, the suit also names Officer Darren Wilson, whose fatal shooting of Brown has been ruled justified, and former police Chief Thomas Jackson, who resigned last month.
    Wilson "unjustifiably shot and killed (Brown), using an unnecessary and unreasonable amount (of) force in violation of (Brown's) constitutionally guaranteed right to life," the lawsuit states.
    The suit further accuses Wilson of "destroying evidence and interfering with the investigation" -- and a former supervisor, his fiancee, of turning a blind eye -- by washing blood off his hands and bagging the gun he used to shoot Brown.
    Jackson is included because he "maintained general supervision" of Wilson and "was also responsible for his hiring, training and retention," the lawsuit states.
    Ferguson city spokesman Jeff Small declined to comment on the lawsuit beyond saying it had been received, but not yet read in full.

    not a shock
    we seem to sue everyone for everything
    it's kinda our thing now

    the important thing to take away from this is that Benjamin Crump is a cool name

    This is where a wise judge would just shut this family down. They truly are scum of the earth.

    Instead of whining about white people and baseball I wish Chris Rock had the balls to castigate with comedy all these shit heads in the Brown saga.
    I blame the Gentle Giant for getting Chris Rock pulled over by the police once a month......right Robin.

    One looking for a quick settlement, because they know that they have absolutely no case and are just trying to extort money from an easy target. Unfortunately, they probably will settle and dipshits on the left will be like "the po-lice admitted guilt because they settled"

    It just goes to show you how dumb, greedy and racist the ferguson protestors are. They revel in their ignorance. The left should own this... This is their doing

    Even AG Holder, as racist as he is, couldn't bring charges against Wilson. That being said 75k? Might be easier and cheaper for the city to just pay.

    But he tried and under the direction of the WH, they both made Officer Wilson's life hell and in jeopardy. The bigger picture here is: careful when labeling all conservatives as racists. Not the case, as more of these liberals stir up bullshit racism.

    Also, now the City of Ferguson is well on its way to losing property values and becoming more undesirable. Way to go holder/obama.

    Darren Wilson should sue them and put a lien on any settlement.

    $75K in a "wrongful" death suit? Even Brown's own family knew he was worthless.
