While [St. Louis County medical examiner Mary Case] declined to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation into Brown’s death, another person familiar with the county’s investigation told The Washington Post that Brown had between six and eight gunshot wounds and was shot from the front.Oh, so he was on the pots? Clearly, a madman.
In addition, Brown had marijuana in his system when he was shot and killed by a police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, according to this person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.
When the Ferguson Police finally revealed which of their officers had killed Brown, they paired it with a surveillance video meant to demonstrate that Brown had robbed a neighborhood store—only to confirm after the fact that no, the two things were indeed unrelated. On the morning the family releases autopsy results, suddenly someone "familiar" with the investigation pipes up with oh, he may have been a pot smoker.
What does it have to do with why he was killed? Nothing. They just need to come up with reasons why maybe the kid deserved to die.
