New video of protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, reportedly shows the stepfather of Michael Brown warning he was going to "start a riot." KMOX-AM reported it happened the night a local grand jury decided not to indict the police officer who shot and killed Brown.
Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden, is seen in the video standing on top of a car yelling to the crowd but at times, unable to talk from crying. Brown's stepfather can be heard in the background saying, “If I get up there, I’m going to start a riot.” In the moments before and after that comment, he and protesters chant, “Burn this b***h down!"
Head later walked back his comment, saying he was "angry and full of raw emotions."
"...I screamed out words that I shouldn’t have screamed in the heat of the moment. It was wrong, and I humbly apologize to all of those who read my pain and anger as a true desire for what I want for our community. In the end, I’ve lived in this community for a long time. The last thing I truly wanted was to see it go up in flames. In spite of my frustration, it really hurt to see that.”
St. Louis County police are now investigating Brown's stepfather part of the query into the violent acts that took place following Brown's death and the grand jury's decision.
“We are pursuing those comments and there’s a lot of discussion going on about that right now,” Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told Fox News.
