Angelic Michael Brown Not So Angelic After All (Updated & Bumped)
According to the police report, video shows Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson having an altercation with store staff and allegedly stealing a box of Swisher Sweets cigars on Saturday, shortly before midday. In the grainy images, a large black man wearing a light-colored shirt, distinctive shoes, a red baseball hat and khaki shorts is seen assaulting a clerk and then stealing cigars. A photograph of Michael Brown's body, taken minutes later in the street after he was shot dead, shows that he was wearing a light grey shirt, the same shoes and khaki cargo shorts. There was also a red baseball cap by the body.This new development might also explain why rioters focused their rage on the QuikTrip convenience store. Although the store isn't where the robbery took place, it was mentioned by the robbery victim as a possible destination of the two criminals. The angry mobs must have heard about the robbery some time before it was made public, yet they still pursued the "cop executed innocent boy" narrative as an excuse to riot. UPDATE: A vetted caller to the Dana Loesch Show gives Officer Darren Wilson's account of what happened: (Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)
A partial transcript, from Gateway Pundit:
"He pulled up ahead of them. And then he got a call-in that there was a strong-arm robbery. And, they gave a description. And, he's looking at them and they got something in their hands and it looks like it could be what, you know those cigars or whatever. So he goes in reverse back to them. Tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. I think he said Michael did. And, then he opened the car again. He tried to get out. He stands up. And then Michael just bum-rushes him and shoves him back into his car. Punches him in the face and them Darren grabs for his gun. Michael grabbed for the gun. At one point he got the gun entirely turned against his hip. And he shoves it away. And the gun goes off. Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren's first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, "Freeze!" Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him... And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something."Video of Michael Brown's strong-arm robbery can be viewed HERE.

Without the cameras i think there would have been deaths at the riots, but the video biography of his last hour on earth has him looking more'n more like Travon Brown. As usual, almost everything we hear in the first two days is a lie outright or a lie of omission.

These dummies can't even get their own story straight.
The truth will come put evrn more with the angle at which he was shot.
This is just an excuse to riot, loots, and a hope of being ruffed up by the cops so theh can sue.

So, this case should be very simple. If Brown has bullet wounds to the back, witnesses are accurate and cop should be charged with excessive force & murder. If Brown only has bullet wounds to his front, the cop's version (see update) is accurate and witnesses should be charged with hindering an investigation.

They'll watch the video and say 'that's not him' because he was angelic and no evidence will change that. They have an idea that the cops are guilty and IDEAS ARE BULLETPROOF.
some twitter stuff:
"There is a longstanding tradition of demonizing victims in this country.
This unarmed teenager was killed by police. That's what matters."
"Mike brown stole bullets then fell on them" - early draft of the Ferguson PD incident report
"releasing video of an unrelated robbery the same time as the killer
cop's name is some of the boldest (and weakest) bullshit I've seen."
Bulletproof minds. Unchangeable.

Being dumb enough to want to steal Swisher Sweets should be reason enough to be removed from the gene pool.
