Recently Published Footage Calls Events Preceding Mike Brown's Death Into Question (Video)
LOOK at this and TRY not to get mad. Remember the Michael Brown case; the Ferguson police murder (er...arrest)? Well, additional footage dropped that shows the strong-arm robbery Brown supposedly perpetrated on the owner - the video footage of which was leaked, somehow 'justifying' the arresting officer's use of lethal force - did not tell the entire story. See, above is another piece of footage that shows an orderly exchange, perhaps even a DEAL struck between Brown and the store owner. Strange how that's been left out of the conversation until now, huh?
For all unaware (read: NOT 'woke'), THAT is how you paint a negative narrative using 'actual footage.' You don't put out all the footage, just the part that supports the story you want told, AND negates the one you don't. Whatever happened, Mike Brown should NOT be dead. TRUTH! The 'strong arm video' was meant to sell us on the bad-things-happen-to-bad-people story. Wrong story, okay. 'They' (e.g. those who want you to believe that Mike Brown was 'not so good enough' that he deserved to live to be tried like a citizen) WANTED that video to be seen to support their story, not the one this new footage tells...
But Jay Kanzler, a lawyer for the convenience store and its employees, strongly disputes that version of events, and said the new footage is unrelated to Mr. Brown's later visit to the store.
HUH! Their lawyer disputes the new footage and what it might reveal... Ya think?
