It seems the Ferguson police have been busted again. They demonized this guy. There has been a large push to call him a strong arm thief, and say he
charged officers, but now I don't know what to believe.
Apparently, one source says he paid for his cigars. He grabbed more than he could afford and had a disagreement and possibly shoved the clerk, but the
clerk said he/storeowner DID NOT call the police. The police say a random citizen that was a customer in the store called. I want to hear that call,
because the cops notoriously lie about tips. So it is possible that there was never a call about Mike Brown and that was fabricated after the fact (it
was all released as the same time as the officers name) to justify the officer coming back to further harrass the teen.
Note: Another source says he did steal cigars but it was so insignificant that the store owners didn't call the police. Allegedly a customer did. I
really can't see a customer caring more than the storeowner themselves and now i REALLY want to hear that 911 call. I want to know it exists. I want
to know there was a report that made that cop circle around again.
The shooting was no doubt unjustified, but this makes it look even worse as there may have never been a call and the whole story that the officer
circled back because he heard the call and considered them suspects may be b.s. I will note that the story says the storeowner claimed the customer
made the call, but until I see the store owner say so, I won't trust it.
Sources of course aren't what I'd prefer, but they are what I have.
The shooting was unjustified regardless because we have an officer, armed, at his car shooting an unarmed teen on foot.
Whatever words were exchanged between the man in the video and the store owner, they were not considered very serious, as the store owner nor
the employees did not report a theft at the store. According to the stores attorney, the owners were bewildered when the police approached them
demanding the surveillance tapes. The store owners are now afraid of themselves becoming a target, due to the Ferguson PD’s attempt to tie their
store to the fateful shooting. A gross abuse of police authority, one which now puts someone else at risk. Even if Michael Brown were a petty thief,
this does not excuse the cold-blooded shooting death of the 18-year-old. Of course the right-wing took the robbery claim at face value, and began
labeling Michael Brown as a ‘thug‘ who did not deserve due process. But instead it looked like he was a teenager who was enjoying a few cigars
which he purchased at the local store. The store owners did not claim he stole from them. Video evidence shows him paying for the cigars found on him.
The police attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything but a victim is a complete and total fraud.
Second source (the one that says he stole them but the store didn't call 911).
The store owners are also pissed because the ignorant police have linked them to this kids death and tried to use it to justify the police interacting
with him a second time (which led to the shooting) when the store didn't even call 911. So the police put this store at risk for looting.
This shooting was unjustified no matter your opinion of Mr. Brown and the police are covering up something by being intentionally sloppy and letting
