There was NO conflict. The police chief expanded on what he stated. The initial stop was due to the two walking down the middle of the street; during the stop the officer noticed the cigars.
Both can be true and consistent
Was that before or after he said the shooting officer had no knowledge of the robbery.

Yea, you want us to believe that out of the blue a police man shot dead a person who was jay walking for no reason? That narrative really wore out quickly.
Every witness has the same story.

The only different story is from the cop. That's a problem.

Let's see how quickly you admit you were wrong when the FBI arrests the cop.

After you made an ass of yourself with the Bundy militia, you went silent, as if it had never happened.

Should we expect the same with this??

You're asking that stupid a question after a cop murdered a kid who had his hands up??
Only Roxblow could be so clueless.
You are clueless to think the claims of Brown's co-horts are trust worthy as another witness with no ties to either Brown or the officer states that Brown bum rushed the officer.

You are wrong! I posted the one witness statements.

Who has any doubts that HOLDer will butt into this? After all Brown is one of "his people." Holder needs to stop acting like a racist.

Eric Holder Authorizes Second Autopsy Of Michael Brown

""Attorney General Eric Holder has authorized a second autopsy of Michael Brown, the unarmed African American teenager shot to death by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9.

"Due to the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family, Attorney General Holder has instructed Justice Department officials to arrange for an additional autopsy to be performed by a federal medical examiner," Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon said in a Sunday statement. "This independent examination will take place as soon as possible. Even after it is complete, Justice Department officials still plan to take the state-performed autopsy into account in the course of their investigation."

Brown's family had asked the Justice Department to oversee a second autopsy in order to ensure objectivity. According to the Associated Press, the family has put funeral arrangements on hold until a second autopsy can be performed.

Preliminary results of the first autopsy showed that Brown had died of gunshot wounds. However, the report did not specify the number of times Brown was shot.""

Not all departments, you are lying. Ad usual you either had no knowledge or are just lying again.

The history has everything to do with the outrage & rioting.

Michael Brown might very well be an ass. That is not a death penalty offense.

Witnesses claim he had his hands up when shot.

If the ¨business owners¨ don't have insurance it's their tough luck. They shouldn't expect police officers to risk their lives for 10k worth of windows and inventory, especially when bullets are whizzing by.

The video shows that Brown was aggressive and fully capable of attacking the officer as the evidence in the car shows.

The only ones acting like racists are you and your merry band of right wingnuts. You've been attacking the kid for 2 days now, much of which is shit you made up and later changed.

Like the one from TX, spouting racist hatred all morning??

Or the one from TN, doing the same thing??

You're a pretty strong racist yourself, declaring the kid guilty before even an investigation has run its course..........

What will you say if the kid was shot in the back??

I love it when you whiners claim to know sh*t when you are 100% wrong.
The police chief clearly said the officer that shot Brown had no knowledge of the robbery.
You people are dumber than sh*t.
To be fair, and because I know it is hard to keep on top of things as they are happening:

At 3:15 pm on September 14th the police chief said Brown had no knowledge of the robbery. Then at 7:21 pm he said Wilson stopped Brown and Johnson because they were walking in the street, and not because he thought he was a suspect in the robbery. However, after stopping him, Wilson noticed that Brown was carrying cigars and then realized he might be the robber."

100 black people killed each year by White Police Officers.

""Ferguson, where Brown was shot dead, is close to the place from which the slave Dred Scott waged a legal battle for his freedom. She quoted from the notorious Supreme Court case which rejected Scott's claim because, in the infamous words of Chief Justice Roger Taney, he had "no rights which the white man was bound to respect."""

That is still the problem for white America.

They feel blacks have no rights they need to respect.

Proof is the blatant racism aimed at our President.

Thanks again, imbecile. However you do prove a point that our federal government too big and needs to be scaled back to pre-1960 size and states forced to manage their own affairs as designed by the founders via the Constitution.
Of the eight countries you names, one has a smaller population than 20 of our states; two have populations less than 22 US states, and one is smaller population wise than 10 of our states. Three governments controling three countries smaller in population than Ohio and New Jersey.
Two of your honored countries (Canada and Poland) have smaller populations than California;
Germany is the largest in population, but smaller than California, Texas, and New York by 3,500,000 people.
France, number two on your population list at 66,259,012 is smaller than California, Texas, and Idaho’s combined 66,392,850.
And Italy at 61,680, 122 is smaller than several combinations of our states populations.
One more thing about all this: Canada is the most diverse of the countries names and they are not as diverse as we are. Most of the Euro countries you think so highly of are 80% and higher natives to the country, some over 90%, which, or course, makes governance a lot simplier.
Conservatives are right, cut the size of government and it would run better. I say, change the Constitution to allow confederations, say a Red Confederation and a Blue Confederation, each headed by a Vice President who reports to the President. Blue states can do whatever they want as long as they can pay for it and Red states can do the same. Both confederations would be required to support the Constitution and contribute their share of recruits to the military. If the Blues want to pay for the Dept. of Ed, they send their money to DC, if the Red’s don’t want to, they keep their money home and use it for schools.
Thanks again for the help, stoogeboy.

Read up about the case. There was nothing illegal about Perry using his veto powers. The complaint even stated this was part of his official duties.
Get informed so you are not posting things in a fog.
Get a clue...Perry cannot use his veto power to punish someone for not resigning. It's unethical and illegal.

Ferguson, MO.

50 white cops

3 black cops.

Town is 67% black.

Why is there affirmative action for whites on the police force??

It should reflect the community, it doesn't come close.

So now we need to affirmative action police departments?
Why do you automatically think white police men are corrupt and cannot deal with minorities fairly?
Affirmative Action? "These days, Ferguson is like many of the suburbs around St. Louis, inner-ring towns that accommodated white flight decades ago but that are now largely black. And yet they retain a white power structure.

Although about two-thirds of Ferguson residents are black, its mayor and five of its six City Council members are white. Only three of the town’s 53 police officers are black."

As to why I suspect the white "police men" are corrupt...well, look at the mess they made trying to cover for each other. Whatever, you "if you're white, it's all right" mindlesses will swallow anything they put out although Michael Brown might not be a paragon of virtue that shouldn't be a capital offense, in fact, it's no;t even a crime.

I was trying to be polite to you, but the truth be told I would touch you with Magic Johnson's johnson, since you love those Black boys I'm sure you have your share of STDs to pass around. Don't be calling me a racist. Not when Sharpton, Odonothing and Holder are trying to lynch another white man for killing vermin. You have a problem.

Rand Paul is telling the truth about racism in America.

""In this context, Senator Paul stood out for the passion of his attack on what he sees as a national trend toward overly militarized police forces and, as a Republican, for explicitly raising the issue of systematized racial bias against blacks.

“The images and scenes we continue to see in Ferguson resemble war more than traditional police action,” Paul wrote in an op-ed for Time magazine’s online edition.

“Anyone who thinks that race does not still, even if inadvertently, skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention,” Paul added.""
