Instead, Mr. Pollock believes that the new video shows Mr. Brown giving a small bag of marijuana to store employees and receiving cigarillos in return as part of a negotiated deal. Mr. Pollock said Mr. Brown left the cigarillos behind the counter for safekeeping. ...Dozens of witnesses, recording, and autopsies proved that Brown was a criminal who tried to kill a cop. Any defense of Brown is just an endorsement of black ppl killing white cops.
But Jay Kanzler, a lawyer for the convenience store and its employees, strongly disputes that version of events, and said the new footage is unrelated to Mr. Brown’s later visit to the store.
“There was no transaction,” Mr. Kanzler said. “There was no understanding. No agreement. Those folks didn’t sell him cigarillos for pot. The reason he gave it back is he was walking out the door with unpaid merchandise and they wanted it back.”
Even if Brown were some sort of low-level marijuana dealer, how does that help his case? He robbed a store and tried to kill a cop!
The NY Times and the Obama administration used this story endlessly to incite anti-white-police hatred for its ideological purposes.
