At a pro-Wilson Facebook, on September 13, 2014, nearly a month after police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot the unarmed 18-year old, Michael Brown, Witness 40 "posted a graphic" image. It is the image of Brown lying dead on the pavement, and the type overlay reads: "Michael Brown already received justice. So please, stop asking for it."

Here is Witness 40, Sandra McElroy, 45-years old, who, according to The Smoking Gun, testified at the grand jury that Brown "'bent down in a football position...and began to charge at the officer.'"

Before we dismiss her as a "troubled, bipolar" woman with "a criminal past"--remember, her testimony was permissible and aided in the exoneration of Brown's murderer. Think about this!

On several occasions, McElroy made allegations to the police which police latter determined were "complete fabrications," writes reporters William Bastone, Andrew Goldberg, and Joseph Jesselli, in their article "'Witness 40': Exposing A Fraud in Ferguson."

Here is McElroy commenting at her YouTube page (now deleted) about a missing white woman. The woman "had a baby with a black man." McElroy's response: "'see what happens when you bed down with a monkey have apes and party with them.'"

McElroy has a "history of making racist remarks and once insinuated herself into another high-profile St. Louis criminal case with claims that police eventually dismissed as a 'complete fabrication,'" again.

And yet, it is this woman who is allowed to testify for the officer who murdered Michael Brown. It is here testimony heard at that Ferguson grand jury and her testimony heard globally thanks to corporate-owned news anchors who imparted the news, that is, the image of Michael Brown supplied to them by Sandra McElroy.

The corporate media's overlay of the image of a dead, shot down, Black, unarmed18-year, echoes McElroy's Facebook posting: he charged Officer Wilson "'like a football player, head down.'"
