Marc Catron Posts Fake Michael Brown Photo on Facebook
Kansas City police officer Marc Catron is under internal review following Facebook posts about Michael Brown, including one photo erroneously purported on social media to be a picture of Brown.
Catron posted to his feed comments like, “Remember how white people rioted after OJ’s acquittal? Me neither.” But it was the following photo that really got him in trouble:
— We’ve all seen that photo since day one, even though it’s not Mike Brown from Ferguson, it continues to circulate.
That’s actually a picture of a murder defendant from Oregon.
People in the community saw Catron’s photos and alerted the police; the department said it was handling the case internally. Meanwhile, a Facebook page, “Marc Catron Isn’t worthy of the shield,” is already up and running.
