    If it did, then why did wasn't the video released sooner? Why haven't they been saying this since day one?
    The way that information was presented was pretty confusing but what seems to have happened is that Wilson initially contacted Brown and Johnson because they were walking down the middle of the street which blocked traffic. Some words were said back and forth and the cop began to drive off. At roughly the same time the cop investigating the robbery broadcast a suspect description and Wilson, realizing that Brown fit that description, stopped and tried to detain him.

    Alleged now, because the alleged perpetrator is now deceased and unable to answer any questions.

    Alleged stealing a box of cigars, and allegedly having six shots pumped into a man walking on a city street and not on the sidewalk, that's probably a felony in itself in Fergson for blacks, not walking on the sidewalk.

    Race relations have been strained in this town, and in St. Louis County since the 1970's, but nobody is paying attention to that.

    and now, a grand jury investigation has been scheduled, who want's to bet it'll be comprised of mostly whites?

    Police chief admits he doesn't know how to handle race relations, maybe he should step down and go flip burgers somewhere?

    And that grand jury is being convened today. Don't you find this a bit...odd?

    Don't you find peculiar Holder's involvement?

    Blessedly, Michael Brown's friend is very much alive and will surely at some point testify, as will others. I'm concerned about the rush to convene the grand jury. Have, for example, all the toxicology reports come back?

    There is no alleged about it. It has been confirmed that it was him by his cohort and his family.
    So start learning the actual evidence.

    There are at least three felonies that Brown was able to be charged with at the time of the altercation...

    1. Strong arm robbery
    2. Assault of a Uniformed Law Enforcement Officer
    3. Attempt to gain control of an Officers weapon

    And more....

    4. Attempted murder of a LEO
    5. Possession of stolen property (probably not a felony due to amount of said property)

    etc...

    So you should just stop with all the hate filled bias crap you are putting out here. It is making you look foolish.

    sad thing is you can already see where this is headed. A jury is going to let him off when they see the evidence and then it starts all over again. The fake liberal outrage will be level red.

    If a jury ever decides this, that in of it self will be a gross miscarriage of justice

    Then why did the kid with the dreadlocks standing behind him say they robbed the store?

    At this point I agree...This is moving too fast (Grand Jury to be picked today) and smacks of the system railroading this officer bowing to outside pressure, instead of going about this methodically to get the proper answers to this.

    I just now was watching MSNBC interview a local police commander who was addressing the question about what they are doing now, when the last question was "What will calm this and put an end to it?" and the Local commander who was black BTW, answered that he didn't think it would "until there was an indictment, and conviction" in this matter...So, even the police seem to be leaning toward railroading Darin Wilson in this....

    Are you kidding me? Where? Where did Brown pay for those cigars in that video? The young man he was with (true to his account) put the cigars that Brown handed to him back on the counter, saying he didn't steal....
