Stinson Brown

Born and raised in Lansing, Michigan, where he attended the same high school as Magic Johnson. After graduating, he moved to Los Angeles with $240 and a dream of becoming either a lawyer or a police officer. Today, he is a highly-decorated, 22-year veteran lawman and a renowned drill instructor at the LAPD. Mr. Brown began his career with the Los Angeles Police Department and has worked some of L.A.’s toughest neighborhoods, including the Central Division, the Southeast Division and the Nickerson Gardens Housing Development. One day, during a trip through Nickerson Gardens, he stopped to give some baseball cards to a couple of young boys. One reached into the black and white patrol car, hugged the officer and said “I love you.”           That innocent embrace left an indelible impression on Officer Brown.  In 2007, he founded Brother II Brother. He says he was simply tired of watching young boys die in his arms. His hope is that by leading through love, we can save some of the young lives cut short by violence. In a cruel twist of faith, his only son would later fall victim to the very violence he fights to stop. On July 17, 2009, Stinson Ameer Brown was gunned down by a teenager.
