Earlier today we reported that substantial news would be forthcoming on the investigation into Michael Brown’s shooting and the resultant riots in Ferguson, Missouri.
Ferguson police released this surveillance video showing Brown and a friend robbing a convenience store; the police report states that Brown reached across the counter and stole a pack of cigars before engaging in a physical altercation with the store clerk.
It completely and utterly transforms the conversation. Of course, as the investigation is ongoing and no ultimate conclusions have been reached, no final judgments about the shooting can be made.
We will continue to keep you updated as more information is released.
