Lawyer: Friend confirms that
he and shooting victim had
robbed convenience store

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 8/15/2014 2:31:07 PM

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

Comments:
Officer Wilson was investigating this strong arm robbery when he encountered Brown and Jordan on the street.

Officer Wilson was injured during his encounter with Michael Brown. 6´4, 290+ lbs. A strong-arm bully.

This still raises a lot of questions. It´s obvious Officer Wilson knew he spotted the suspect when he saw Brown. Why didn´t he call for back up and inform dispatch he had the suspect under surveillance. When Brown was confronted there should have been numerous officers on the scene. Maybe he did call in and those details haven´t been released.

Could it be that Obama was ´speaking out´ before all the facts in this case are confirmed? Or one could say, jumping to conclusions, interfering in local law enforcement, prejudicing the case, etc.

Was this the same friend on the video that claimed (while standing next to his lawyer) that he and the deceased were merely walking home and got hassled by a mean cop. And then hid behind a car (while holding cigars) while his innocent friend was hunted down? He had claimed that the police had not taken his statement. Any change of events now?

My husband was on our local PD for years. I guarantee the officer informed dispatch that he had spotted a suspect and gave his location. That would automatically bring any squad in the area who was not otherwise occupied. The guys would just start rolling that way.

He more than likely decided at that point to attempt to engage in a casual conversation with the two until back-up had time to arrive.

That would be the only way to explain why Brown was seen with his head inside the squad wrestling with the officer. There is no way that the cop could possibly have any advantage if this big guy is blocking him from opening the car door, attempting to grab his weapon and, punching him in the face. Adrenalin is through the roof at this point.

Did Brown manage to get the officers primary weapon? Did the officer use a back up to shoot the suspect? At that point shooting to kill is entirely appropriate, especially when it was two robbery suspects against one.

Also..there is no way that the PD should have released any information until an INVESTIGATION had taken place. They must rely on evidence especially in an officer involved shooting that results in a fatality.

But we all know that facts, details and truth don´t matter to a cultural group who will jump on any opportunity to wreak havoc, steal, riot, beat up innocent people, and stir up an incident where they act out their hate. That our president and AG, et al get in on the mess before facts come out goes beyond the pale. They are attempting to manipulate what is going on...reprehensible!

Obama has established a pattern of "´speaking out´ before all the facts in this case are confirmed? Or one could say, jumping to conclusions, interfering in local law enforcement, prejudicing the case, etc."

It is despicable that POTUS would interfere in a local matter before the facts were known, but then Obama´s behavior is ofter despicable.

If race relations in this country are to approach the goals set by MLK, blacks need to cease rioting, looting and burning buildings. ALL of these things are unlawful and uncivilized and NONE of them are justifiable.

It seems to me that people speaking up for the actions of law enforcement ARE taking Dr. King´s words to heart. We are not judging people by the color of their skin, rather by the content of their character. In my book, robbing a store, rioting, damaging personal property are all indicators of one´s character.

The Ferguson Police Chief just had another press conference this afternoon. The officer who stopped and later shot Brown DID NOT KNOW anything about the robbery when he stopped Brown and friend in the street or when he shot him. He was not looking for robbery suspects when he stopped Brown in the street.

There goes any defense that he was stopping a ´felon´ when he shot Brown. He did not know about the robbery or that Brown was involved in any law-breaking that night.

In the second part of the video where that 208# 6ft-4in "CHILD" walks up to the cashier and reaches across and helps himself to merchandise, then pass some to his partner. There was a female clerk behind the counter..she had entered just before Brown started helping himself to the merchandise at the Cashiers position.
Looked like a strong arm robbery from where I was watching the video.

gagolfer: We´ll never know, of course, what was going through Brown´s mind (i.e., did he think he was being stopped for the armed robbery he and his fellow perp had just committed?). The fellow perp´s behavior (i.e., hiding behind the car with the loot in his hand) could be interpreted to indicate that it what HE thought.

Just a niggling little detail, when Michael Brown reached into the police car to "tussle" with the officer he was armed exactly the same weapons he used to rob the convenience store - his hands. Not defending the officer, just pointing out the obvious.

yes 18 but Brown knew what he had just done and the guilty flee when no man is sniffing on his trail. He then acted on his knowledge -- which I am sure surprised the officer and that conduct shocked the officer who had no reason to know why he was being attacked.

gagolfer: Actually, the officer was stopping a felon, perhaps unknowingly. I have to guess the officer did not hear the radio dispatcher´s radio announcement since it does not appear to have been what the police call a "felony stop":

11:52 a.m. - A police dispatcher gave a description of the robbery suspect over the radio. The suspect is described as wearing a white T-shirt, long khaki shorts, yellow socks, flip-flop type shoes and a red Cardinals baseball cap. Wilson left the sick call after hearing the report of the robbery.

11:54 a.m. - A police officer arrived at the store, but the suspects were gone. The officer is told the suspects walked north on W. Florissant Avenue, but the officer did not see them.

121 p.m. - Officer Wilson encountered Brown. In previous statements, Chief Jackson said Wilson was pushed back into his car and that he and Brown struggled before Wilson fired at Brown.

Can we stop calling the near 300# man a teen, now?

Why is nobody upset that a black storekeeper cannot be safe inside his store from young thugs coming in a physically manhandling him?

What was Brown doing with his head in the police car - really hard not to call that uncalled for aggression.

I don´t like weaponizing the police, but I´m not willing to throw the baby out in the bathwater just to satisfy the grievance industry. We - the collective outside Ferguson - need to get out of the way. The sad fact is that our media is so desirous of a racial antipathy meme that they generate them regularly, and innocent people are made to suffer. They are a reverse barometer for me. While I´d like to withhold judgement, I believe the opposite of what the press reports, and that Michael Brown was asking for lethal force because he was attempting to use some of his own.

The police chief - who is no longer leading the investigation - just had another presser that thoroughly mucked up a very messy situation.

He should never ever give a press conference. Inarticulate, stumbling.

And the investigation, now being handled by other agencies, is no longer his to know about or discuss intelligently. So he didn´t.

Then he dropped the nugget that Officer Wilson did not stop Brown and Johnson because of the robbery report.

He really doesn´t know this for sure. Not initially sent on the robbery call, Wilson could have gotten a "be on the lookout" call on his radio. And Brown, who resisted Wilson to the point of hurting Wilson and getting himself shot dead, did NOT know that Wilson may not have known of Brown´s involvement in the robbery. BROWN knew he was guilty of it.

They all should shut up until their ducks are in a very factual row.

PS.
From another article´s timeline:

11:52 a.m. - A police dispatcher gave a description of the robbery suspect over the radio. The suspect is described as wearing a white T-shirt, long khaki shorts, yellow socks, flip-flop type shoes and a red Cardinals baseball cap. Wilson left the sick call after hearing the report of the robbery.

11:54 a.m. - A police officer arrived at the store, but the suspects were gone. The officer is told the suspects walked north on W. Florissant Avenue, but the officer did not see them.

121 p.m. - Officer Wilson encountered Brown. In previous statements, Chief Jackson said Wilson was pushed back into his car and that he and Brown struggled before Wilson fired at Brown.

124 p.m. - A second officer arrived "at the scene of the shooting," Jackson said.

125 p.m. - A police supervisor arrived on the scene.


http://abcnews.go.com/US/ferguson-police-detail-moments-michael-brown-shot/story?id=24998305

At some point we will probably find out that Officer Wilson, not initially sent out on the robbery 911 call, did get the radio call and stopped these two suspects based on their description. Or maybe he´d already stopped them for blocking traffic in the street?

Brown resisted being put into the police cruiser, roughed up Wilson, and was subsequently shot.

Not so fast, #18.

Read #30 and #32. Police chief did not have enough facts to give a coherent press conference.

He really didn´t know what Officer Wilson knew or when. He simply said Wilson was not sent on the robbery investigation. As has been pointed out, a police radio bulletin went out asking officers to be on the lookout for (described) suspects. The chief and we do not know if and when Wilson got that.

And as also been mentioned, if Michael Brown, conscious of his own guilt, thought he was being picked up for the robbery, he might very well have reacted with the same force he used on the convenience store employee. And it did not come out well.

Much more investigation must be done and facts assembled.

I watched a new interview with the accomplice with Michael Brown; he was so innocent sounding; he said he and Michael were only minding their own business engaged in a conversation, and this mean police officer just started trouble. In the video you see a big bully, Michael Brown, intimidating the small framed convenience store owner. Michael not only stole expensive merchandise, he used his hulking 300 pound body to come back in after the owner. Then came the encounter with the police officer; I have no doubt Michael was feeling big about himself and then tried to intimidate the officer. The attorney for the family said this video has no bearing on the case; I beg to differ. It shows what a hulking bully Michael Brown was, and set the tone for he encounter with the officer.

There was a rime when police were expected to shoot when they said stop or I;ll shoot. As for the many shots? It takes a lot of 9mm bullets to stop a maddened person. This happened on a police shoot out where a man was shot multiple times.

Obama´s regime has intensified black hatred for whites. ACORN and inner city unrest acerbated by obama regime so race war more apt to happen than before his election IMO. I hope I am wrong. Trotsky and the democrats new what and when? Lyndon Johnson´s 200 years needed booster shots?

A sad day in America when hate rules the hearts of many. We can truly say that obama has been revolutionary?

There are a couple of very large (massive muscles) & tall guys in my family. I have tried to explain to them that other people who are strangers do not know that they are nice people and that they need to not approach strangers at night or alone. The other person will naturally fear them because of their sheer size. This was after one had stopped to help a lady who was stranded on the side of the road in middle of nowhere with a flat tire and the family member was insulted that the lady was scared of him. I also had to point out that besides being six and a half feet tall, that he had been using red paint, had red paint smeared on his jeans, was wearing a Harley Davidson shirt that had a drawing of a tombstone on it with the inscription AMF. He did NOT look like a gentle giant, but a giant of questionable intent. A Colt is a giant equalizer, and big guys need to understand that, going into a fight or any situation. Brown seemed to be accustomed to using his size to bully and intimidate. I did not see anything "gentle" in that video.

Friend of the family´s version of events:

Officer sees Michael walking down middle of street. Officer tells him to move, Michael is belligerent and curses.

Officer pulls past and gets report of robbery. Description of suspect matches Michael.

Officer confronts Michael who then attacks him and tries to get his gun. Gun goes off, injuring Michael.

Michael starts to run, then turns around and approaches officer again. Officer is forced to shoot. All shots hit Michael in front, none from behind.

Medics carrying out a vaccination programme in rebel-held northern Syria accidentally administered a muscle relaxant to up to 75 children, killing 15 of them, the opposition says. A preliminary investigation by the National Coalition found atracurium was given to the children instead of a solution used to mix measles vaccines. The packaging for the drug is said to be similar to that of the solution. All of the children who died on Tuesday were between six and 18 months old.

Lethal Violence in Chimps Occurs

Are chimpanzees naturally violent to one another, or has the intrusion of humans into their environment made them aggressive? A new study, published Wednesday in Nature, is setting off a new round of debate around this question. The study’s authors argue that a review of all known cases when chimpanzees or bonobos in Africa killed members of their own species shows that violence is a natural part of chimp behavior and not the result of actions by humans that push chimp aggression to lethal attacks. The researchers say their analysis supports the idea that warlike violence in chimps is a natural behavior that

Perhaps the best way to think of this is to use President Obama’s own words. It appears the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” have struck up a truce with ISIS. That’s a problem, because Obama’s ISIS elimination plan requires the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” to fight against ISIS on the ground while we shoot at ISIS from the sky. If the “doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth” don’t put the pointy end toward the Islamic State, oops, wait, sorry… the non-Islamic Islamic State (NI-ISIS) in Syria, then who will?

This letter sent to the Saint Louis Dispatch by Benjamin Crump clearly showcases the growing sense of desperation. As with almost all things from the mind of the Crump it will also backfire. (Snip) Just because a judge blocks a media publication from seeing the official police and criminal justice system records does not mean the media, traditional or new, will be blocked from getting copies of incident reports, victim reports, police reports, and law enforcement engagement records. Like perhaps for instance, oh, I don’t know – what if Big Mike were involved in: four assault charges, three burglary charges, one

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident. "Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive´ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga. How about we take away their ‘exclusive´ and I´ll give

Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

Religious minorities have been persecuted. American and British citizens have been beheaded. There is a further threat of other innocent human beings to be beheaded or killed in some way.

That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but
