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."


So the stop of Brown by the officer Was not related to the robbery. But jaywalking.

Also the reasons for releasing the video and reveal a investigation was over a freedom of information request.

Why wouldn't he just release it? Why hide it?
StlToday

Asked by reporters why he released the tape, he said, "Because I had to. Too many people put in (freedom of information) requests for it."

" Ferguson chief says officer didn't know Michael Brown was suspect in robbery when he encountered teen "

But It's safe to *assume* that Brown may have THOUGHT the cop was stopping him for the "altercations" at the store.

Maybe that's *WHY* there was a fight with the cop ?

Brown's "friend" thought the same too I bet.

So the officer WAS aware of the robbery, but somehow oblivious that these two guys in the street could possibly be involved? Because they would never give a description of robbery suspects to officers in the area?? That makes no sense.
