CNN gave Director Jason Pollock an opportunity to dredge up the wounds of Ferguson over the weekend. None of the information activist Director Jason Pollock shows in his film about thug Michael Brown changes the fact that he was killed while attempting to take Officer Wilson’s gun away from him during a confrontation. CNN gives Pollock a platform however to prove his point that because Michael Brown was seen selling or exchanging marijuana for cigarillo’s earlier in the day, that that somehow he was not really such a bad guy after all. Is CNN intentionally stirring the pot to help perpetuate a constant cycle of rioting and unrest in America? This is a non-story. The trial has taken place and Officer Wilson, whose life has been destroyed by people like our former race-obsessed President and his accomplices like Al Sharpton, his former crooked AG Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch who all but lit the flames in Ferguson. CNN’s most recent headline: “New surveillance footage of Michael Brown sparks protests” that talks about “protests” and “new surveillance footage” makes no mention about the fact that this is no more than a “bait and switch” of crimes that Michael Brown committed and has no bearing on his shooting death.
(From CNN) New video captured hours before Michael Brown was killed shows the 18-year-old exchanging marijuana for cigarillos with the clerks of a Ferguson, Missouri, store, a documentary director told CNN on Monday.
Director Jason Pollock, whose film “Stranger Fruit” debuted at the South by Southwest festival in Austin over the weekend, said the video shows that Brown did not rob the store before being stopped by police and that surveillance footage purporting to show Brown engaged in a robbery at the Ferguson Market and Liquor stores was actually video of Brown returning to the store to retrieve the cigarillos the clerks gave him.
“This is a shady store. We’ve asked a lot of people in this community. You can buy weed at the store,” Pollock said.
Pollock suggests that had this footage been released, it would’ve altered the notion that Brown was shot after robbing the store. He learned of the footage from a St. Louis County police report that mentioned a video from 1:13 a.m. the day of Brown’s death.
In an earlier interview, in which he appeared alongside Brown’s father, Pollock said, “What this video shows is that (police) lied to the world about what happened. They wanted to make Mike look bad, so they put out half a video to destroy his character in his death.”
Police say the new footage is irrelevant to their investigation. Investigators have previously said Officer Darren Wilson initially stopped Brown for walking in the street, not because the store reported a robbery.
Watch CNN’s explosive interview here:
About 100 protesters gathered at the store Sunday night, forcing it to close, and gunshots were heard before midnight, but no one appeared to be injured, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Gunfire erupted last night in front of the Ferguson store where Michael Brown was captured on surveillance video shoving the store clerk around, and now seen exchanging marijuana, as rioters gear up for a new fight in Ferguson.
Pray for this city!
