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.

What a joke!

Liberals can be summed up with one word: triggered. Everything annoys them to no end, to the point where they feel they need to get violent. We see it happen on nearly a daily basis. Check out what went down when a teenage boy decided to wear a MAGA hat in our nation’s capitol. It didn’t go over well with a random future Joe Biden voter. WATCH: https://twitter.com/charlienicole/status/1279905108289941505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1279905108289941505%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhorrible-trump-supporters-in-dc-accosted-and-harassed-by-blm-thug-who-stole-their-maga-hats-video%2F Criminals seemingly don’t have as bad a reputation as police officers. Without question, ex-cop Derek Chauvin was in the wrong when he placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. But why are all officers being blamed for one bad apple? It’s not right. Some cops are fed-up. From Miami Herald: The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week, a memo the officers signed read. They will remain with the police department. On Friday morning, Hallandale Beach received a memo from the members of the SWAT team with a list of grievances, Hallandale Beach City Manager Greg Chavarria said. Police Chief Sonia Quiñones has set a meeting with the 10 officers on Monday to hear their concerns, collect their equipment and thank them for their service.

Report: President Trump to Refile Paperwork This Week That Will Rescind DACA Program

A big move…

Like most things nowadays, DACA has long divided conservatives and liberals. On Monday, it was reported that President Trump is set to make a big move later in the week. Here’s the scoop, via The Hill: President Trump is expected to refile paperwork this week to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that offers protections for thousands of young immigrants, according to multiple people familiar with the planning. Trump was initially expected to move to once again rescind the Obama-era program last week, but it was pushed back, according to one source. The exact timing remains in flux, but Trump is now expected to file the paperwork this week. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows hinted in an interview with Fox News earlier Monday that the president was readying executive action on immigration issues, though he did not offer specifics. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts hasn’t been the conservative stalwart Republicans had expected when first nominated by President George W. Bush. Anything but, really. After siding with his liberals peers yet again, GOP Senator Tom Cotton (AR) is telling Roberts he should step aside.
