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

Rev Al ain’t gonna like these revelations. He be sayin’ “hummmmmmmmmm.” Regardless of the facts, the lynching of the officer must go on. I’m confident the facts and the truth will unfold. The Great OZ has spoken.
The black community is pushing hard ....”Don’t shoot..and Hands up”......so even if he did the robbery they’ll came he had surrendered. The Attorney’s PR machine is also pushing it with the community.
The truth never squares with what the mob says.
They both were wearing Benjamin Crump’s T-shorts the last two days.
Michael Brown is slated for sainthood a la Trayvon. The facts be damned.
Apparently the witness was the victim's buddy in the robbery.
Were did you see the pictures?
“Question; would the shop owner have been justified in pulling out a gun and shooting his attacker?”
A well applied choke hold can kill a person in under a minute. So, yes.
I’m curious if there is audio to the robbery - would like to hear if racial slurs are being used against the store owner...
The key eyewitness, however, is Brown’s companion, who was in on the robbery. Slam-dunk for officer Dennis Wilson’s defense.
even if this convenient alibi is true, if the kid had his hands up and was surrendering, the cop was wrong to execute him.
it may or may not be a good thing that this kid (who may or may not be the one in the pics) is out of the gene pool, our police officers are not judge/jury/executioners....yet.
if the cop was wrong let the criminal justice system handle it.
wopuld this situation be the same had the cop been black?
facts won’t matter....the narrative has already been written.
If he stole a cigar, he must have forced his way behind the sales counter (unless MO law is different, cigars and cigarettes are kept out of reach of children).
The welfare teat nourishes well.
You will recall that St. Trayvon was out getting the ingredients for Drank or whatever they call it.
This comment was missing the sarcasm (/s)tag, right?
I bet they didn’t know he was unarmed.
Possible scenario. Brown struggles with the cop in the car. There’s a shot inside the car, Brown gets out of the car unhurt. For all the nearby policeman know, Brown now has a gun and perhaps just shot their colleague with it.
Bang bang bang.
