Michael Brown's Family Accuse Ferguson Police Chief Of "Character Assassination" & "Inciting" The Community By Releasing Robbery Surveillance Footage [Video]

Video After The Jump

The release of surveillance video that allegedly shows Michael Brown committing a strong-arm robbery minutes before he was killed has angered his family.

The family called a press conference and aired their grievances through their attorney, Anthony Gray.

"We're here to talk about the latest events that have come out in the media and [Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson's] decision to release the still pictures and the video," Gray said. "The family feels that was strategic. They think it was aimed at denigrating their son. It was a character assassination attempt."

Gray added that things could once again erupt into violent protests because of the way Jackson handled the situation.

"At a time when the highway patrol has been called in, where we got a calm going on in the community," Gray added. "We're finally reaching a point where things have settled down he's now inciting the community all over again. If you get this kind of negative, violent reaction to this it won't be on anybody's part on this side."

Brown was unarmed when he was shot multiple times and killed by police officer Darren Wilson on Saturday, August 9th.

Protesters are already lining the streets Friday, August 15. Authorities are hoping things remain peaceful.

You can clearly tell it's character assassination because the DOJ asked the police not to release the stills and video and yet they did it anyway; only to turn around and say that the officer didn't know he was a suspect. So why release it? They wanted every lukewarm person who doubted the young man's innocence to feel obligated to stop supporting the fact that he was murdered. Even if the ACLU petitioned to have them ordered to release info regarding the case, if the petit larceny wasn't the reason why the officer engaged the "suspect" the release was exactly what this lawyer said. Unfortunately, the hotheads in the community took the bait.

I didn't believe MB was completely innocent in the situation to begin with. That's irrelevant though. The fact is I don't see justification for using deadly force in any of the stories that are out about what went down on the street. Even if they were fighting the officer, had at least 10 other methods at his disposal before using his weapon. If it was somebody off the street then possibly....POSSIBLY they might have had justification. A police officer that trains to handle situations like that I don't think so. The fact is there are a lot of poorly trained and scary a** officers out there. That s*** is like the military, everybody ain't built for that s***. Their first job is to preserve order and public safety...not your own cause you feel threatened.

Even if he took ALL the cigars AND a bag of chips, it still wouldn't justify him being killed by that pig.

Put it this way. This was a young KID about to go to college who decided to do some dumb a** juvenile s*** that he shouodnt be doing, who got EXECUTED by a no p**** getting picked on in high school fat f*** racist. Obviously if this was anybody else particularly a white man he wouldbt have been shot that way. 10 shots!!?? Cmon guys. 10 f****** shots for an unarmed teen?? Obviously this was some hateful s*** done by the PIG. HE DONT HAVE TO SCREAM HE RACIST HE PROVED THAT S*** FOR HOW ACCESSIVE HIS FORCE WAS. A wht dude wouldve gotten hollard at and possibly s*** in the leg for resisting arrest.
