Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was fatally shot by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb, fit the description of a strong-arm robbery suspect that police were responding to the night he was shot, the Ferguson police chief said at a Friday press conference.
Police have said Brown was shot after an officer encountered him and another man on the street. They say one of the men pushed the officer into his squad car, then physically assaulted him in the vehicle and struggled with the officer over the officer's weapon. At least one shot was fired inside the car before the struggle spilled onto the street, where Brown was shot multiple times, according to police

Yep, Saint Trayvon II.
Who’s the guy watching this , on the left? Eye witness for sure.
Yes, but the whole story needs to come out as fast as reasonably possible. So Brown fit the description of a strong-arm robbery suspect. Was he stopped for that reason, and not because he was walking in the street?
That's important. Most folks would give a cop some leeway when dealing with a strong-arm robbery suspect. Why wasn't this robbery angle released much sooner?
...and just like them sue to try and cash in on their son’s demise.
Everyone says he was a “gentle giant” and wouldn’t hurt a fly.
Was this robbery the night before he was shot or same day?

They were both good, church going boys and their mommas loved them.
They helped guide little old ladies across busy streets and always stopped to aid injured birdies and puppy dogs.
“one of the men pushed the officer into his squad car, then physically assaulted him in the vehicle and struggled with the officer over the officer’s weapon. At least one shot was fired inside the car before the struggle spilled onto the street, where Brown was shot multiple times, according to police”
Well, that certainly is a different account from the narrative the lame stream media have been putting out.
Do you know what happened after the policeman and Michael scuffled? I don’t.
Not messy. Not a confused situation. Not a matter of disparate interpretation of events. Not an event worthy of national attention.
The ONLY issue that has the Victim Community upset is that a Cracker killed one of their sacred sons..
The leftist media is a pack of liars and purveyors of liberal propaganda. That’s all they are.
News saying Browns handed the cigars to his friend...being seen as an accomplice.
I have no doubt.
It also said this:
“Dorian Johnson, who says he was walking down the street with Brown when he was shot. He has said the officer ordered them out of the street, then grabbed his friend’s neck and tried to pull him into the car before brandishing his weapon and firing.”
What I am struck by in this “witness statement” is the claim that the officer grabbed the GIANT ENORMOUS kids neck and tried to PULL him into the patrol car. What, on top of himself? I guess that’s supposed to be the “answer” when other for why the kid was in the car struggling with the cop, eh?
Did the cop try to pull the guy into the drivers seat with him? WTH?
Yep. And dare I say it? No justice, no peace?
Since the witness, Johnson, who says Brown was on his knees, is the accomplice in the robbery, that account is seriously damaged.
There will be a lot of egg on faces with the video from the police car is released.
I head early on that “shoplifting” of some cigars may have been a cause.
Looks worse than shoplifting.
Question; would the shop owner have been justified in pulling out a gun and shooting his attacker?
Police reports say that the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri, and his friend were suspects in a convenience store robbery on the day of the shooting.
Reports released Friday by Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson say Michael Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson, took a box of cigars from a store in Ferguson the morning of Aug. 9. Jackson says the officer who shot Brown encountered the men after reports of the robbery circulated on police radio.
If is him ... Stop was justified.
