    Re: Michael Brown was a robbery suspect before he was shot to death, police say

    Police Chief Jackson has stated that Officer Wilson did not know that Brown was a robbery suspect. From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

    The officer who shot Ferguson teen Michael Brown stopped Brown and another teen because they were walking in the street, not because of a robbery a few minutes earlier, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said Friday afternoon.

    Jackson said Michael Brown and Dorian Johnson were suspects in the robbery, but the officer wasn't aware of that. The officer, Darren Wilson, knew there had been a robbery but did not know that Brown and Johnson might be suspects.

    "The initial contact between the officer and Mr. Brown was not related to the robbery," Jackson said in a news conference shortly after 2 p.m. "(The robbery) had nothing to do with the stop… They (Brown and Johnson) were walking down the street blocking traffic, that was it." Ferguson officer stopped Michael Brown for walking in street, but then saw Brown had cigars that might have been stolen, chief says : News

    It has been reported from the get that he tried to take the Officer's gun. That is a life threatening attack.
    That's the official 'cop' story, contradicted by the non-cops who were there. Frankly, I wouldn't believe cops when they are defending their own under any circumstances.

    Well, if the cop had a spotless record then let's just give him a medal and be done with it!

    Has it been verified that this is indeed Mike Brown?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
