    had told FBI and other investigators Michael had taken cigarellos from the store.  

    A total supposition on my part is that this officer hadn't heard of the robbery yet, and the murder scene went down as the witnesses have told it.  After the fact, they were able to connect the robbery with the videotape and Michael's friend's admission to the FBI.  Ever since then they have probably been trying to reverse engineer what the officer did to protect his horrendous actions.

    That scenario would explain why they didn't arrest the other young man at the scene or shortly thereafter, because that wasn't the reason for the police stop.  Having uncorrupted timelines will be critical for justice for Michael.

    the saddest part to all of this is that they are now winning, because all anyone is talking about is Michael, not Wilson, the officer.
