Why Michael Brown Was Really Gunned Down by Police: New Video Searches for Truth

5

by G. Brown

For three years the public was told the same narrative…’Micheal Brown was gunned down by police after being suspected of robbing a store.’   But new video that’s just surfaced is shedding new light on what seems to be an old lie.

Michael Brown’s shooting death by Ferguson Missouri police in August of 2014 touched off a racial storm that has been marked by protests across the nation.  The 18 year old was fatally shot by officer Daren Wilson after the White police officer said Brown was robbing the store.  Security camera footage supposedly showed Brown stealing several packages of cigarillos.  But a documentary director says that video of Brown leaving the store was the second video of  Brown’s visit to that same convenience store.  Director Jason Pollock has video that shows Brown entering the store earlier about eleven hours earlier…handing a package of some sort to the cashier and receiving a bag of cigarillos.  Brown then is reportedly seen handing the bag back to the clerk.  The second video supposedly shows Brown returning to pick up the bag of cigarillos that he left with the clerk from the earlier video.  Here’s an except from Pollock’s documentary “Stranger Fruit” on the truth behind what he thinks really happened the day Brown was killed.

Pollock says the video proves that Brown was not a robber being gunned down by a police officer and vehemently voiced his opinion on CNN during a panel discussion about what he calls a cover up by police and officials.

Pollock says if both videos had been released, it would have removed the doubt that Brown robbed the store and may even have avoided all the racial tension in Ferguson and around the nation that occurred because of the shooting.  That latter statement maybe nothing more than optimistic conjecture.  Though the release of both videos could have doused some of the negative portrayals of Brown in the media as a robber shot by a cop doing his duty, it wouldn’t have curbed the racial tension that was already brewing behind  other shootings and the deaths of unarmed Black teens and men like Trayvon Martin, Freddie Gray and Eric Gardner.

Whether the new video will change anything at this point is doubtful. Do we really expect Ferguson to go back and re-examine the entire Brown case?

An even more disturbing question haunts America over at the pages of Huffington Post where an article queries what will happen in Trump’s America if another death in a police officer vs. Black unarmed man or woman occurs?

Brown’s father  Michael Brown Sr. has looked and the video and takes comfort in what he saw because he says the new video shows that his son “was not in the wrong”.  The older Brown is very critical of Ferguson police and officials for holding back that first tape and says, “”Maybe the city of Ferguson wouldn’t have gotten tore up like that…It’s almost like they asked for it, if you ask me, for not keeping no truth in there.”

What do you think…is Michael’s dad right, could all the protests and racial tension have been avoided if the first tape was released?  Will it make any difference now that its coming out in a documentary?

  1. their should be a NEW trial because this shows how conniving the police and city officials are. They will hide the evidence until after the verdict is render….

  2. It’s important to remember that the Ferguson police murdered Michael Brown while Barack Obama was President. Please remember that when the Ferguson riots happened after Michael Brown was murdered by the police, Barack Obama did absolutely NOTHING!

    1. What was Obama suppose to do when you have a dead kid shot by the cops? Did the Mayor do anything, Did the governor do anything? Did you do anything beside mention Obama. Is he to blame for ALL of the shooting in America. Nice black folk died in a church at the hands of a white man. NOTHING can bring them back. Stop blaming and try to find out how we can help to stop the killings on all side.

  3. My list of top five lies that white people told and got away with:

    1. Carolyn Bryant Donham lying about 14 year old Emmett Till whistling at her. Emmett Till was lynched!

    2. George W. Bush lied about Saddam Hussein possessing weapons of mass destruction. Over four thousand troops were killed during the Iraq war!

    3. Ferguson Police lying about the shooting of Michael Brown!

    4. LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman lied under oath during the OJ Simpson murder trial!

    5. Former President Richard Nixon lied about the “War on drugs.” Nixon’s “War on drugs was actually a political ploy to incarcerate black people to prevent them from voting.

    What do these five lies have in common? They severely affected black people. These lies also resulted in the unjust death of black people.

  4. Infamous quote from Adolf Hitler; “If you want to control people come up with a lie. Make the lie big, make the lie simple, keep repeating it and eventually they will believe it.”

    White Amerikkka declared war against Hitler in the 1940’s. Currently Amerikkkan white supremacy is doing exactly what Hitler did in the 1930’s and 1940’s; create lies, broadcast it to the population and make the people believe it. This new video footage shows Ferguson Police lied about the shooting of Michael Brown. The police and the Missouri state justice system intentionally hid the video to protect themselves and to broadcast the lie that Michael Brown was a criminal. Unfortunately there is nobody to prosecute and convict the police. Nobody in Amerikkka has the power to stop white nazi white supremacy; not even Barack Obama!
