Jackson says the officer who stopped Brown did not stop him in connection with the alleged robbery. Brown was stopped, Jackson says, “Because he was walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic. That was it.”Furthermore, Jackson said, Wilson did not know that Brown was a robbery suspect when he confronted him.
To a follow-up question:
Jackson is asked: If the alleged robbery had nothing to do with Brown being stopped, then why would you release the video of the robbery?Here's a question about that, how did any reporter know to ask for the video, since until this morning its existence wasn't public knowledge? What this all boils down to:
“Because you asked for it,” Jackson says.
It was such an inept dog-and-pony show that Jackson was forced to admit it, just hours after it happened. What a fucking mess.
