Over the past week or so, the grand jury decision on the Michael Brown case has forced groups of people to question authorities and their power.
Riots broke out in Ferguson, Missouri and protests have been taking place throughout the country. But some fingers are being pointed at Brown’s stepfather, who is shown in the video above. He seems to be encouraging the people to make a stand, and some are blaming the stepfather for the breakout of riots.

NewsBreaker said that the family had been asking for a peaceful protest days before the grand jury made their decision. It seemed that peace was the last thing on the minds of the people in Ferguson during the night of those riots, especially the mind of Brown’s stepfather. However, no charges have been made to the stepfather, and the situation is still being investigated.
