BREAKING: Ferguson Police Chief Admits Mike Brown Shooting Not Related To Robbery

The case around Mike Brown’s killing by a Ferguson police officer is only getting murkier.

After releasing images from a gas station robbery to the press Friday morning with the suggestion Mike Brown was pictured in them, the Ferguson police department is now backtracking. In a second press conference hours later, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson admitted that Brown’s shooting was unrelated to the incident.

Jackson told reporters that Brown and a friend were in fact stopped, “because they were walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic.”

He also admitted that Darren Wilson, the officer who killed Brown, didn’t suspect Brown at the time that he stopped him.

When Chief Jackson was asked by reporters why his department chose to release the robbery tape if it was unrelated to the shooting, he replied that he had to because “the media asked for it.”

Who says social media doesn’t make a difference? Their police chief having to backtrack after everyone calls them out for bald-faced lies.

This is the incident report that the Ferguson police just produce. Now if you don’t know, this morning they FINALLY named the killer of Michael Brown as Darren Wilson. Along with naming Darren as the killer, the Ferguson police are now trying to link Michael Brown with a robbery that happened supposedly MOMENTS before. 
Michael was killed at 12:01 and this robbery was at 11:54. 
There are so many questions.
We’ve seen the surveillance photos they’ve produced that shows someone who looks like Michael being aggressive with a store owner over an apparent box of swishers. (If you don’t know, Swishers are cigar papers you can pick up for like…2 for .50.
They are saying that Officer Darren Wilson was responding to that robbery.
They are calling it an STRONG ARMED ROBBERY
 A strong armed robbery is using, involving, or threatening the use of physical force or violence to gain an objective:
Okay, got that bullshit out of the way
The dispatch tapes that were released mention NOTHING ABOUT A ROBBERY.
NOT ONE WORD
THE ONLY THING MENTIONED WAS A SHOOTING AND REQUEST FOR CROWD CONTROL.
THAT’S IT
So how did Officer Wilson FIND OUT about the robbery? 
They’ve now listed Dorian Johnson (THE ONLY OTHER EYEWITNESS WHO WAS THERE) as the second accomplice to the robbery. 
The same Dorian Johnson who has been trying (in vain) to talk with the Ferguson Police Department about Michael’s Death since LAST SATURDAY.
So this man who is this SECOND SUSPECT IN A ROBBERY CASE IS PLEADING WITH YOU AND IS ALL OVER NATIONAL NEWS AND YOU ARE REFUSING TO SEE HIM. BUT HE’S A SUSPECT IN A ROBBERY. OKAY
When Officer Wilson sees both Michael and Dorian his initial reaction was "GET THE FUCK ON THE SIDEWALK."
Not any kind of reaction dealing with them being robbery suspects. 
From some of the pictures (I’m not going to post them due to the family’s wishes) if you compare the footage from the store and the footage from Michael’s death, he’s swapped from Nike sandals to Sneakers. This red hat cannot be found (this is speculation).
If the reason Office Wilson approached them was because they were suspects in an robbery WHY DIDN’T HE CALL IT IN? WHY DIDN’T HE FOLLOW PROCEDURE? WHY WOULD HE ROLL UP ON ROBBERY SUSPECTS IN HIS VEHICLE? WHY DID IT TAKE 6 DAYS FOR THIS TO BE ANNOUNCED?
I implore you. IMPLORE YOU to take a look into the presented facts of the case. This is just an incident report, we do not have access to the investigative report. There has been no reports presented of Michael’s autopsy and this report is contradictory of the second eye witnesses report.
None of this makes sense. 
They are putting Michael on trial to dehumanize him, villify him, to make him less human to justify his murder.
And at the end of the day, LET’S JUST SAY MICHAEL DID DO THIS…is petty theft (it was like 5 swisher sweets they say. That’s a two dollars and fifty sense) IS HIS MURDER, HIS EXECUTION, THIS UNARMED SURRENDING TEENAGE BOY, justified by this?
NO.
It’s not.
This is murder. Don’t let them put Michael on trial for HIS DEATH.

              Honestly, history is amazing.
              Like, you see racists and anti-semites and sexists pull pseudo-science and conspiracy theories and blatant hoaxes out of their asses to back up their beliefs, but if you want to make a claim about the cruelty of white men you’ve got pretty much the entirety of documented human history as evidence.

                No, but seriously here, had the southern states succeeded in seceding, it’d open up a lot of possibilities. People think of the idea of wanting the South to “win” as meaning allowing slavery to move on, but the war did not begin as a war against slavery. In truth, slaves were used as political pawns by Lincoln (a racist) and the main drive to end slavery in the North was driven by the idea that slaves took jobs from white men. In truth, the best way to have ended slavery would have been based around the concept of the Haitian Rebellion, but in such a large nation it would have been impossible. Had the South seceded, it has been speculated that slavery would have inherently ended soon thereafter regardless, so thinking of the war through slavery alone muddies the image of the North and the point of the war.
                Had the south successfully gained independence, there’s no doubt that their nation would have crumbled in some fashion. With no real industrialization and an economy dependent on the North, it would have been a disaster. The North would lose the backbone of its own economy, cotton being the main  exported good in the United States, but there were still several cotton producing states in the Union and an abundance of industry. Furthermore, America maintained a trading relationship with England despite its war of independence from that nation, so it’s not entirely unreasonable to guess that the Union and Confederacy would have traded after a period of time.
                In theory, democracy would have been more direct and pure in the North had the South remained independent, with a smaller nation that had fewer states that went completely against what every other state believed. States with a more unified sense of politics could more efficiently compromise, as opposed to the current system of numbers and stalemates. However, there was a history of Northern elites wanting to limit democracy, and it’s not hard to see that, with the anti-Federalist South out of the way, the right to vote could have been limited immensely and the powers of the Federal government expanded. 
                All in all, it’s hard to say what could have been. There’s an argument in favor of the notion that civil rights would have taken quicker and more effective leaps and bounds without the South holding the nation back, and an argument that civil rights for everyone in the North could have been diminished. At the end of the day, it’s safe to say nobody can truly know.

                As a sidenote, Lincoln was a lifelong racist and supporter of segregation, and the fact that schools continue to teach more about his importance to black history than many devote to Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglass, and Martin Luther King combined stands as a testament to how far we truly haven’t come.
