The more information about the circumstances surrounding Mike Brown’s death are released, the shadier the Ferguson Police Department looks. Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson told reporters today (Aug. 15) that the police officer who shot and killed the 18-year-old man had no idea he was a robbery suspect.
Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson told reporters Friday that “the initial contact between” Michael Brown and the police officer who fatally shot him was not related to the alleged convenience store robbery committed nearby a short time earlier.
The officer approached Brown not because of the robbery, but “because they were walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic,” Jackson said.
This leads to an obvious question, why was footage of the robbery released this morning if it had nothing to do with the shooting? According to the chief, the media “asked for it.” However, no one in the media knew about the footage.

All we have to say at the moment is “stay woke.”
