A mother and activist from Ferguson, Missouri recently took to social media to say that her son, 24-year-old Danye Jones, was targeted and lynched. However, police have ruled the incident a suicide.

Police discovered Jones in the early morning hours of October 17, hanging from a tree in the backyard. A knotted up bedsheet was tied around his neck.

Melissa McKinnies — a prominent activist — in a since-deleted Facebook post, wrote, “They lynched my baby,” and shared a graphic photo, the Post-Dispatch reported.

She wrote, “This is what I woke up to! They lynched my baby. My first time seeing these photos. If you have a weak stomach, don’t look, but this mother wants justice after I get up. I’m sick and losing my mind, but I had to let the world see what they did to my baby!”

The Post-Dispatch reported that McKinnies previously helped organize protests in the wake of the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and had been subjected to threats since.

McKinnies was also reportedly worried that someone would try to kill her son.

She said that her son did not have suicidal tendencies and did not know how to tie the knots that were utilized in the makeshift noose. She noted that the bedsheet used in Jones’ hanging also didn’t come from the family home.

Notably, Jones reportedly had packed an overnight bag, which had been left outside. McKinnies said that Jones may have been leaving the home with someone he trusted.

The St. Louis County Police believe Jones committed suicide, noting there were no signs of struggle or trauma on the body. The actual cause of death is pending a toxicology report. McKinnies is planning to stage a protest at the St. Louis County Justice Center located in Clayton, Missouri, with the goal in mind of persuading investigators to look into the case as a homicide.

According to St. Louis County spokesperson Shawn McGuire, law enforcement is still treating the matter as a suicide.

Confirmed: AOC, Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib Will Officially Endorse Bernie Sanders for President

Makes you wonder what cabinet positions they might’ve been promised…

Omar, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez. Without question, three of the very [insert word here] people to become members of Congress in quite some time. The rookie lawmakers are the most prominent members of “The Squad” and constantly find themselves in trouble for saying and doing silly things, but you already knew that. In a surprise to literally no person on planet earth, all three Democrat Socialists will endorse Bernie Sanders for president. Not Warren. Not Biden. Not Booker or Buttigieg or Gabbard or whoever else. They’re going with their fellow Democrat Socialist. Might Democrats say they’re acting, I don’t know…sexist!? by choosing a man over a woman? Look out for it! Even though this announcement is likely to get plenty of airtime from far-left networks, it should do little to move the needle in Bernie’s favor – at least if it comes down to a general election battle between Sanders and Trump. Think about this, though…what cabinet positions were Tlaib, Omar, and AOC promised if Bernie wins? Scary thought, right? From Fox News: Fox News has learned that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will appear with Sanders on Saturday in Queens, N.Y., at a “Bernie’s Back” rally designed to generate excitement for the senator’s campaign following his recent heart procedure. Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., will also endorse the candidate, Fox News confirmed. New: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib will also endorse Sanders, according to source. AOC will, as @daveweigel and @WaPoSean first reported, will do the same on Saturday in NYC. https://twitter.com/GregJKrieg/status/1184303508188794880?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Focasio-cortez-omar-tlaib-reportedly-will-endorse-bernie-sanders As if everything they’ve said about Israel wasn’t bad enough, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib decided to take things a full step further. It’s pretty bad. And yet, nobody in the mainstream media will say a word – neither will any of their liberal colleagues. LOOK: Oof. Looks like both…

Pelosi Makes It Clear: Democrats Will Not Hold Vote On Impeachment Inquiry Into Trump

Game over?

Published

It’s all over, folks. Democrats, once again, thought they had President Trump caught between a rock and a hard place. And yet, once again, Democrats didn’t do their homework before pulling the trigger. Go figure, huh? With all these absolutely phony, made-up “get Trump” tactics the left has pulled, you’d think they’d have scored on at least one attempt. But nope. They’re still swingin’ for the fences and striking out like they’re wearing blindfolds when they step up to the plate. On Tuesday evening, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) made it clear that her far-left party would not proceed with a vote on an impeachment inquiry. The reason, even though they won’t admit it, is because they have nothing to go on. Not a single thing. It’s just too bad the uninformed and the mainstream media kept goading liberals into thinking there was a chance. But no dice! CONFIRMED: Pelosi informs caucus there will NOT be a formal floor vote to launch the impeachment inquiry https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184240274417041408?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184240274417041408&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjust-in-pelosi-says-no-impeachment-vote%2F Schiff says Republicans “have completely been represented” in these closed-door depositions. They have attended and ask questions. “There is full participation by the GOP” He says that he anticipates releasing transcripts https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/1184246948808802306 From Fox News: The move was seemingly a boon for moderate Democrats in swing districts, who have been reluctant to have a formal vote in favor of the proceedings as the 2020 elections approach — even as several of them have also sought to appease liberal constituents by vocally backing the ongoing inquiry. A congressional aide familiar with House Democrats’ discussions told Fox News that many House Democrats did not want to be seen as letting the White House dictate how the House conducted itself. Last week, the White House sent a fiery letter to House Democrats announcing that it would not cooperate…
