This is alleged video footage of Michael Brown stealing an item and intimidating and assaulting a shop keeper.
Assuming this is Michael Brown, does this mean he deserved to die for this crime? No. That being said watching how he casually and even cruelly manhandles, bullies and intimidates the shop keeper makes me feel significantly less sympathy for him and his family.
I don’t know about you, but it’s difficult to feel sympathy for a violent criminal when they themselves are victimized.
One bully gunned down by another.
Nevertheless, if the Police officer acted inappropriately he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Michael Brown didn’t deserve to die for these actions… but I don’t think he’s the martyr we’re looking for.
