    I have no idea who took it. Everybody has a phone with a camera. But I'll tell you what. After watching the video of that piece of **** stealing the cigars from that store and threatening the 5 foot tall owner/employee, I kind of got some satisfaction out of seeing that big bully SoB laying dead in the street. Didn't bother me much at all.

    Theft is not robbery and doesn't warrant a death penalty.

    The Police called it a robbery.

    And he wasn't killed because of it.

    It became robbery when he interacted with the store owner in the manner that he did. You might also want to add assault to the list, and given his behavior, it's a good bet that Brown threatened the owner's life when he aggressively moved towards him right before Brown left the store. This is not thuggish behavior. This is sociopathic behavior. Anyone who watches this video is probably not surprised that the altercation between Brown and the Police Officer ended the way it did.

    A big black guy wearing urban clothing in a city where 70% of the community is black? Well... you've sure narrowed down the list of suspects. You were a cop right?

    Hmmm? Let's see.
    The police say it is the same person and even revealed that the Officer saw that same person with the box of stolen cigars.
    The family's lawyer says it is him in the video.
    And the video and images show it is him wearing the same damn thing, accompanied by the same witness who gave a contrived account.

    And yet here you are after the fact of the above trying to cast doubt?
    Odd to say the least is right, except that it applies to your position.

    Yes, let's: The police said he was a suspect in a robbery that an officer had not stopped them for. You do know what suspect means? Yes?

    Ferguson police say Michael Brown was suspect in robbery | Fox News

    The family's lawyer says it is him in the video.
    Really? When did he say that? Want to show us a link to the statement? Wait... here it is:

    Police Name Officer in Michael Brown Shooting

    Michael Brown's family is beyond outrages at the devious way the police chief has chosen to disseminate piece mil [sic] information in a manner intended to assassinate the character of their son, following such a brutal assassination of his person in broad daylight.

    There is nothing based on the facts that have been placed before us that can justify the execution style murder of their child by this police officer as he held his hands up, which is the universal sign of surrender.

    The prolonged release of the officer's name and then the subsequent alleged information regarding a robbery is the reason why the family and the local community have such distrust for the local law enforcement agencies.

    It is no way transparent to release the still photographs alleged to be Michael Brown and refuse to release the photographs of the officer that executed him.

    The police strategy of attempting to blame the victim will not divert our attention, form being focused on the autopsy, ballistics report and the trajectory of the bullets that caused Michael's death and will demonstrate to the world this brutal execution of an unarmed teenager.
    You do know what alleged means, yes?

    And the video and images show it is him wearing the same damn thing, accompanied by the same witness who gave a contrived account.
    Really? Hm:

    Officer who shot Michael Brown didn't know he was a robbery suspect - LA Times

    When still photographs of the robbery were shown on a television at a nearby McDonald's, viewers started comparing details of the suspect's clothing to what Brown was wearing when he was shot and killed, arguing that Brown wasn't the man
    shown in the pictures.
    As for the witness:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2014/08/1...illance-video/

    The woman in the hat is more interesting because she claims the man in the surveillance video was wearing different clothes than Michael Brown was when he was shot.
    We must be looking at different witnesses. Even the people who saw it say it's not the same people.

    And yet here you are after the fact of the above trying to cast doubt?

    Odd to say the least is right, except that it applies to your position.

    I don't cast doubt on it. I dismiss its relevance... which is exactly what the Fergusson Police Dept is doing. Actually, here is what the people who released the video had to say on the matter:

    Michael Brown shooting: Officer stopped teen for blocking street, 'that was it' - World - CBC News

    "[The robbery] had nothing to do with the stop," Ferguson, Mo., police Chief Thomas Jackson told reporters.
    So... any more smearing you'd like to do today? Or what are we discussing here? How he deserved to be shot for being a nameless suspect in a robbery that the police officer had no clue about? Or are we discussing the fact that the police who supposedly have both Brown and Johnson in the video in the video won't consider Johnson an accomplice? Or are discussing the fact that the police themselves say the shooting has nothing to do with the stop or the shooting? Keep smearing Excon.
