Six days after a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer shot down an unarmed teenager, and following days of
against people protesting
Michael Brown's death, Police Chief Thomas Jackson has finally stepped forward and identified Brown's killer. But not before implying that Brown may
have robbed a convenience store.
Appearing at a press conference moments ago, Jackson identified the shooter as Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran of the Ferguson police department. And that's it.
Updates will follow as more information becomes available.
6:53 AM PT: Via CNN: According to sources, they say they believe Michael Brown is in a video of a convenience store robbery and that a "description of the suspect was given." Presumably of a young black guy.
7:03 AM PT: A Ferguson police report, after Michael Brown had been shot, calling him a "primary suspect" in the convenience story robbery.
7:07 AM PT: So for six days Ferguson police have claimed that Darren Wilson simply told Michael Brown to "get on the sidewalk." Is that the usual procedure for dealing with robbery suspects? (Deep sarcasm.)
7:43 AM PT: It's important to remember that whether or not Michael Brown stole cigars from a convenience store, summary execution is not the penalty for maybe being a shoplifter.
