  •  St. Louis County police were on scene..... (7+ / 0-)

    shortly after the shooting. I am not sure how soon but they were one of almost 20 forces called in during the initial gathering of people.  They may or may not have been some of the officers who confiscated/requested photos/videos..... This is good news but I agree it may be too, little too late.

    •  Ferguson is a city (10+ / 0-)

      within St. Louis County, so it makes sense they'd be there quickly. Definitely too late for the Gentle Giant, who was getting ready to go to college:

      “We were at graduation, me and him, and we were talking,” said Hershel Johnson, a friend of Brown’s since middle school. “He said he wasn’t going to end up like some people on the streets. He was going to get an education. He was going to make his life a whole a lot better.” ...

      “That [trying to take the policeman's gun] doesn’t sound like Michael,” Johnson said. “I know he would never do anything like that. I just don’t believe he’d do anything that would cause this whole situation.”

      Tragic.
