Does anyone else find the robbery story suspicious?

You don't think that is Michael Brown in the photos? From what I've read online - they've pretty much confirmed it is him in the surveillance photos.

Correct.

It looks like him. Looks like the same clothes and socks in both the store and later photo of him in the street, as well.

That does absolutely nothing to change the fact that there is absolutely NO justification to continue shooting at an unarmed suspect who is running away and, after being hit by a bullet, puts his hands in the air and turns around to surrender. As soon as that happens, and really as soon as the suspect is running away, any excuse for lethal force goes right out the window, even IF Michael Brown robbed that store, initiated the physical confrontation, caused minor injuries to the officer and reached for the officer's gun. And I find the story that an unarmed teen would initiate a physical confrontation with a cop and attempt to reach through the car window and somehow get the cop's gun to be highly suspicious.

There is simply no excuse to continue firing on kill a suspect who has ceased posing a threat to you.

Why wait days after the incident to release this though? Surely you would have done anything to quell the community's anger?

To me it seems like they were not even looking for him with connection to the robbery and they are just releasing this now as an excuse to cover what happened. Again if that is Michael Brown in the footage.

My brother seems to think nine shots isn't something that needs to be pointed out ... but only because he thinks depending on the gun, it could be 9 shots in 2-3 seconds.

Which is fucking horrifying.

So now the chief of police says the robbery had absolutely nothing to do with the stop. So releasing it was just a smear?

What a fucking cluster...

Ferguson officer realized during encounter that Michael Brown might be suspect in robbery, chief says : News

Quote:
"Jackson said the officer was aware cigars had been taken in the robbery of a store nearby, but did not know when he encountered Brown and Dorian Johnson that they might be suspects. He stopped them because they were walking in the street, Jackson said.

But Jackson told the Post-Dispatch that the officer, Darren Wilson, saw cigars in Brown's hand and realized he might be the robber."
I think it would be prudent for them to release the hospital photos of Officer Darren Wilson very soon. Or any talk with the dispatcher.

Yes, but no one trusts them now due to the way they've released info up to this point. So they're going to have to release these pics, along with the shooting incident report and autopsy.

I do. As if the police there are trustworthy at all to even the people who are not anti-police.

I think its obvious by now that Michael Brown was not a very nice person. It's not too difficult at this point to see that that when he encountered police...10 minutes later!...he was probably in the same "mood" as he was in the convenience store. He's obviously a mean, intimidating bully. I cannot believe you are you still defending this guy!

It's amazing that you who are defending Michael Brown say so little about the shop owner Michael stole from and bullied in the video.

Although all the facts have not yet come in - and they will - at this point, we are probably going to find out in the next few days that Michael punched the officer in the face and tried to take his weapon. That act alone will get you shot by ANY officer - your race, nor the race of the officer, will matter once something like that that happens.

This is yet another instance of the press trying to make something a race issue - and only for the ratings (i.e. money). I do not doubt that there are racial tensions in this area - and they need to be addressed, but I think the media is more pleased stoking the flames than actually helping contain the fire.

If this isn't some poor attempt at satire... Wow.

Fatally shot though? And what about when he was reportedly running away, showing the international, centuries-old sign for surrender?
