  • Chief Jackson says that the original police stop of Michael Brown “had nothing to do with” the robbery at QuikTrip and adds that the officer “did not know” that Brown was a suspect in said robbery, but rather that Brown was stopped because he was “blocking traffic” on the street where he was ultimately shot to death.
  • When asked why the video of the store robbery was released at the same time information on Brown was — as if to imply there was a connection between the robbery and the police stop — Chief Jackson says that wasn’t the case: he says the video was released because “the media asked for it.”
  • The character assassination of Michael Brown, laid bare.
