Ferguson Police Chief: Officer maybe saw Michael Brown carrying stolen cigars

On the same day Ferguson police announced the name of the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, they also released video implicating the teen in a robbery. CNN's Don Lemon spoke to Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson who says the officer who killed unarmed teen Brown might have seen him carrying stolen cigars. But why did Ferguson police opt to release surveillance video of the convenience-store incident, six days after the shooting - if the two situations aren't related?

    Well, if ever there was a reason to demilitarize riot police, publicize the officer's name and picture, and let the mob feel like they're getting their way, its crowds of Black Panthers chanting demands to murder a cop.

    Its time for every cop in the country to shout his defense from the rooftops, because when he gets murdered, its going to be the fault of the elephant-seal of a fat Chief of Police who let it happen by giving them their way.

    The news is flooded with statements about demilitarizing the police, because the role of police is to "preserve life and order," while the military's is to "kill an enemy."

    When a mob screams for the murder of a cop, and the elephant-seal Chief of Police hands over the cop's picture and contact info, the role of a cop-killing mob IS THE ENEMY.

    Is anyone surprised that they only started yelling about murdering the cop as soon as power was given to the highway patrol, and the commander started marching along with the protestors?

    The liars who do not have to face a REAL enemy are weakening those who ARE.

    When this cop dies, don't blame the mob. Blame the ones who replaced those keeping them suppressed, with sympathizers who can't, by cowards who deserted a cop in need of backup.

    The elephant-seal Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson has betrayed a cop to a mob screaming for his murder. HIS BLOOD WILL BE ON YOUR HANDS.
