Well, this puts things in perspective.
Over the weekend, members of the Brown family engaged in a violent street brawl over the selling of Mike Brown tee shirts and other merchandise.
Saturday night, October 18th in the parking lot of Red’s BBQ just blocks from where Michael Brown was shot and killed, Brown`s Grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, along with Brown`s Cousin Tony Petty were selling t-shirts and other Michael Brown merchandise.
Apparently that didn't sit well with other members of the Brown family. According to police, a car pulled up with several people in it, allegedly including Brown's mother Lesley McSpadden. A witness described McSpadden yelling ‘You can`t sell this s%$&”, where upon of the relatives who was selling, reportedly demanded McSpadden show a document proving she had a patent.
At that point, someone in McSpadden's party hit Petty in the face with what is described as a metal pole or pipe, a cash box and merchandise worth $1,400 was stolen and the McSpadden party drove off as police were called.
If you'll recall, there were some pretty vicious fights among the members of Trayvon Martin's family over the rights to sell t-shirts and merchandise , but I don't think it ever got physical.
