Enlightened folks already knew this!
WHY WON’T THEY RELEASE THE NAME OF THE SHOOTER ???? HE WAS NOT ASSIGNED TO THAT JURISDICTION. HE CAME FROM ANOTHER DISTRICT TO HARRASS BLACK’S FROM THE NEIGHBORING COUNTY. I BET A MILLION BUCKS THEY ARE STALLING FOR TIME TRYING TO GET PAPER WORK IN ORDER TO PRETEND HE HAD AUTHORIZATION TO BE IN THE NEIGHBORING COUNTY. HE WAS SUPPOSEDLY OUT OF HIS JURISDICTION TO HELP OUT A FRIEND ON THE POLICE FORCE IN THAT COUNTY. I BET HE DIDN’T HAVE PROPER DOCUMENTATION TO BE THERE.
I am an honest induvidual who hate criminals…..I have to say I really do not see mucheal brown assaulting the clerk…..it looks like she tried to stop him from leaving by closing the door and he pushed her away which is what anyone would have done…..yes he is wrong for stealing but all the more reasin y he would push her away to leave instead of being trapped while the cops came….
Ok I see him turning back at the clerk that does not look good…..were they exchanging words then??
SO WHY ARE THEY SHOWING THE VIDEO THEN! AND, WHERE IS THE CONFRONTATION WITH THE COPS!
This is so confusing. He talked in circles the WHOLE time. Smoke and mirrors. I’m glad some reporters were able to call him out on his BS but I wish they would have asked about protocol and procedure. Why did the body lay uncovered for hours? Is it ok to shoot to kill “robbery suspects?” At what point is a officer involved shooting excessive? What “animals” were officers referring too during a protest (or riot, however they want to spin that one)? I have so many questions!!!!
This video was released for two reasons. 1. To deflect from the murder charge. But if you look at the arrest report it states that the officer that shot Mike Brown had a description of the strong arm robbery suspect. It came over the radio after the 911 call of shoplifting. But when they realized their mistake they had to issue a second statement stating he didn’t know about the alleged robbery. Because if they let it stand, it would go to the officers state of mind because the report stated That HE WAS ARMED.
2. The prosecutor for this case McCullough is upset because they allowed a black State Patrol officer take over the policing of protestors. He stated that this undermined their authority in Ferguson. This is the person that is supposed to obtain justice for MIKE BROWN.
Speak on it! They (Ferguson PD) see the media tide turning against them so they are doing everything in their power to get back on “the side of justice.” No matter how they try to spin this bs, there is nor was any justifiable reason for Mike Brown’s homicide and they need to give up trying to spin fantasy into facts! I am so so so proud of the black community in Ferguson…they chose to stand as one against a corrupt police force and not only prevailed but created a solidarity and a movement that says our young men are NOT expendable and our rights and our color are as valid as yours–Dr. King would be proud….
The prosecutor said that??…u would think anyone would just be happy that peace is restored by whatever means….no but he cares about black folks being intimidated bye white man with guns in their hands…..
When is this going to Stop? Walking down the street is now a reason to die? How many more of our youths are we going to have to lose before something is done about these untrained white (pretend) police. Racist white men with a badge and a gun. Who is policing the police?
The department went against the advice of the Department of Justice by releasing the video. The police department claimed that the media was asking for this video that many claim they had no idea about. Dorian Johnson’s lawyer said they didn’t release the info on the video even though Dorian had told his lawyer about the robbery prior because it had absolutely nothing to do with why the officer approached the two young men at any point during the altercation. Clearly, this department is willing to have rioting every night and create tension for decades following this over ONE brother in blue. If they really cared about the people, they would not take them through so many unnecessary changes. If they want us to know the truth of Wilson’s side, release his written statement so that we know whether or not the stories the police are delivering upon his behalf match up.
