Warren Claims Michael Brown Was “Murdered,” by Police, Invites Fast Backlash

2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren caused a stir by claiming Michael Brown was “murdered” by a white police officer.

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 must confront systemic racism and police violence head on.

Many found Warren’s twisting of the truth upsetting.

Obama’s DOJ said Brown was not *murdered* because “there is no credible evidence Wilson willfully shot Brown.” You’re lying to stir racial tensions. That’s disgusting.

Liberalism 101; Never let the facts get in the way of your story.

Hope she is the Democrat candidate. @POTUS @realDonaldTrump will destroy her in debates.

Per Breitbart, the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association slammed Warren’s “reckless” remarks in a letter Tuesday.

“Your reckless tweet will only serve to create hatred towards Police Officers and place them in danger of more assaults and perhaps death,” Hamilton Police Chief Russell Stevens wrote in the letter.

“Having had two Police Officers murdered in your own state, in the past 18 months, we expect our elected Officials to condemn the murder and assaults of Police Officers,” he continued.

“Instead on multiple occasions, you choose to fan the fires of divide for your own political gains. Shame on you!” he added.

As stated in the letter, officers worry that Warren’s rhetoric will lead to more violence against police officers:
