Previously Unreleased Michael Brown Video Raises New Questions

Previously Unreleased Michael Brown Video Raises New Questions

Previous video footage released by the police show Brown physically assaulting a store clerk and allegedly showed him stealing cigarillos.

About 100 protesters gathered outside the store Sunday night in response to the documentary. Ferguson officers monitored the protest at the store, at 9101 West Florissant Avenue.

Brown would return to the store about 11 hours later.

Filmmaker Jason Pollock, who obtained the footage, claims that it shows that the 18-year-old's altercation with store employees in a later visit to the shop, was tied to a suspected drug transaction with staff in the store. Videos of the protest shared on social media show police taking two people into custody.

A spokesperson for the St. Louis County Police Department told NYTimes that the video was not released because it wasn't relevant to the case. Patel and police previously said Brown had stolen the cigarellos.

McCulloch, who has previously been accused of influencing grand jury deliberations to help Wilson, said Monday that the footage did not have anything to do with the shooting of Brown.

The security footage, part of a Saturday premiere of the documentary "Stranger Fruits", shows Brown entering the convenience store around 1 a.m. on August 9.

Two years after the slaying of Ferguson, MI teen Mike Brown and deeming Darren Wilson not liable for incorrect use of force, a new video has surfaced showing Mike Brown at the convenience store the day before, adding an entirely different narrative the controversial case. The footage in the documentary shows what appears to be marijuana being placed on the counter top by Brown, but was edited to cut out store employees throwing back the bag. Pollock has implied that Brown went back to pick up his cigarillos. The police felt it was unrelated to the shooting by Wilson.

"They destroyed Michael's character with the tape, and they didn't show us what actually happened", Pollock told the New York Times.

A lawyer representing the convenience store and its employees disputed that account.

"There was no transaction", Jay Kanzler said. "There was no understanding. They didn't take the marijuana...maybe Michael Brown thought they would trade him cigarillos, but they didn't". He talks to the store workers, then gives the bag to a clerk and leaves without it. He resigned from the Police Department.

Mr. Brown's parents have filed a federal lawsuit against Officer Wilson, the city of Ferguson and the former Ferguson police chief. "Continue your white supremacy on this air because you looks ridiculous", Pollock screamed.

The report notes that at 1:13 a.m., a four-door passenger vehicle parks in front of the business, and black man, presumably Brown, enters the store, alone, and walks to the refrigerated section and "appears to select several items", according to the report.

Business was brisk outside the market on Sunday with a steady stream of customers coming and going.

Ferguson police said they would release the new video later on Monday.
