Ferguson Police, the racist white-right, and Faux News used a video purporting Michel Brown pushing his way out of a store with a box of Cigarillos as proof he was a “black thug”.
Turns out that video was selectively edited to not show what was going on. First Mike Brown had been in the store 10 hours earlier and traded something for 2 boxes of Cigarillos… The second video, also edited didn’t show Brown exchanging something with two of the store clerks before taking the box of Cigarillos. Apparently the convenience store also was involved in the Marijuana trade, and at least the second video provides proof of the exchange of something, which the documentary filmmaker claims in Marijuana for the boxes. The second video shows the result of a drug exchange gone bad.
No culpability or participation was ever mentioned by the Police.
For some reason, CNN decided to bring on an ex NYC Police Officer, himself a convicted criminal and a favorite bigot on Faux News.
