Yes, of course the Police can take the video to investigate a robbery...
Personally, I find it:
1) Laughable, that Michael Brown's family, and assorted others, are crying fowl about the release of this crime scene video...saying that it is an
attempt to smear his name. Sorry folks, but your son was not the "gentle giant" you claimed he was; but just another street thug. The video
2) Sad, that "the community" reacted to the release of the video (showing the shopkeeper being victimized by Brown), by attacking his store and
looting it...victimizing him yet again. Brilliant stuff...
3) Increasingly likely, that when Brown was stopped by the Police ten minutes after the robbery, he assumed it was because they were going to take him
in for his misdeed, and so he reacted in a violent manner to the Police Officer's intervention (whether or not the Cop knew about the robbery...Brown
4) Credibility sapping, for his buddy who accompanied him on the cigar heist. Are we supposed to just take his word for it, that his friend was all
peaches and cream with the Police and was just standing there with his hands up...when the Officer just started blasting away with no reason? Lord
knows that jaywalking is a serious offence (sarcasm), but it is not normally met with deadly force, by even the most zealous of Police.
