Jason Carroll on "who was Michael Brown"

Reporting from the ground in Ferguson, Missouri, CNN's Jason Carroll profiles 18-year-old Michael Brown, the young man shot and killed by a local police officer nearly a week ago.

In his story, Carroll presents two distinct and opposing descriptions.

In one case, friends and family members describe the teen they knew as "Big Mike" to be a gentle giant, someone whose large build was matched only by an even bigger heart.

However, surveillance video from a nearby convenience store depicts Brown as an aggressive petty thief, one who shoplifted a package of cigars on the morning of his death.

For a balanced look at the teen that was Michael Brown, watch Carroll's report above.

    Why are so many people saying that his robbing the store was not connected to him getting shot?

    The two are absolutely related: Its the same axxhole.
