New Documentary Raises Questions in Michael Brown Case In Ferguson

A never-before-seen video sheds new light on the Michael Brown case and suggests the teenager did not rob a convenience store unlike what authorities said at the time

A new documentary that includes surveillance video showing Michael Brown in a convenience hours before he was fatally shot sparked angry protests in Missouri Sunday night, with nearly 100 people gathered outside the Ferguson Market & Liquor store.

Jay Kanzler, attorney for Ferguson Market & Liquor, said on Sunday that he wants to disprove claims in a documentary, "Stranger Fruit", that the video, from August 9, 2014, suggests Brown didn't rob the store just minutes before his death.

Previously, it had been disputed between the Brown family's lawyers, police and witnesses as to what exactly happened at the store.

Protesters gathered Sunday night following the release of video footage showing Michael Brown at a convenience story early before he was fatally shot by a Ferguson police officer.

Filmmaker Jason Pollock claims surveillance video footage from 1 AM the on day of the shooting proves that Brown didn't steal the cigarillos, but the clerk traded them to him in exchange for marijuana.

Darren Wilson, a white officer, encountered Brown and fatally shot him in an altercation in which events have been widely disputed.

Seven current and former VW executives have been criminally charged with tricking USA consumers into buying dirty cars. Under the plea agreement VW agreed to widespread reforms and new independent checks by an independent monitor.

The video appears to show Brown hand the clerk an item that looks like a small bag, and the clerk hands brown a shopping bag filled with cigarillos.

Pollock narrates as Brown starts walking out of the store, but then turns and hands the boxes to a clerk who puts them behind the counter.

McCulloch said the complete video shows the store employees putting the cigarillos back on the shelf and the drinks back in the cooler after Brown left the store. No agreement. Those folks didn't sell him cigarillos for pot.

The documentary 'Stranger Fruit' by filmmaker Jason Pollock premiered Saturday in Austin, Texas.

Wilson stopped Brown and a friend because "they were in the middle of the street, blocking traffic", Jackson said.

"My clients did nothing wrong", Kanzler said. The authorities dubbed it a strong-armed robbery, which reportedly took place hours before Wilson shot Brown.

Kim also said US and South Korean assertions the assailants were unaffected while applying VX to a victim was an "absurdity". A video clip has since appeared showing Jong Nam's son Kim Han Sol identifying himself and speaking in English.

McCulloch told reporters the reason they did not release the footage was because it was not relevant to the case. "The next day, with his hands politely behind his back, Mike goes back into the store to get his stuff".

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles referred requests for comment to Ferguson's police chief, who did not immediately return messages.

He called the new footage and the convenience store as a whole "a distraction" and said he publicized the footage to draw attention to the segment of his film dealing with the physical evidence at the shooting scene - "the evidence that they don't want us talking about". Wilson said he saw that Brown was carrying mini-cigars and suspected that the two might have been involved in a convenience store robbery of cigarillos that had been reported by police radio.

The store's co-owner, Andy Patel, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Sunday that Brown "grabbed the cigarillos and stole them" when Brown returned to the store later that day.

The trial is expected to begin next year.
