Right on cue Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks drag Lesley McSpadden, the mother of Mike Brown, in front of GMA to outline the next request/step in the scheme. In 2012 Benjamin Crump described getting the arrest as “getting to second base”.
Second base is the arrest. “All we want is an arrest”. You can hear it at the 4:15 point of the video. Now that everyone in Ferguson Missouri is riled up they need to get to second base – quickly before anything happens that would deflate the momentum. (@4:15)
Moving forward, in order to get to second base they will use a very specific logic – it goes like this:
“All we want is an arrest, let officer Wilson have his day in court and explain why he murdered our son – is it too much to ask for him to be held accountable to a judge and jury and have to explain his actions? All we want is an arrest so we can see justice”.
Sounds reasonable and sympathetic to most, that’s why it’s set up like that. Once they get to Second Base (The Arrest) a financial hurdle will have been removed, as the arrest will suffice for probable cause of a wrongful death claim.
Third Base is positioning the trial which puts pressure on the insurance companies to settle prior to a verdict.
Home Plate is the check which comes from extorting the insurance company and municipality. The outcome of the trail is irrelevant – it matters not.
Here’s a video of Ben Crump and Sybrina Fulton reaching second base in 2012. Look at the joy in Sybrina’s son as he asks ‘can I get a Porsche now’?
You only need to watch the first 35 seconds – But watch the full 35 seconds, it’s priceless.
