Video of Mike Brown, dead, with Commentary He was Killed for No Reason

This is one woman's video of the murder and the protest.  The protest starts out peacefully but eventually someone decides to break into a black-owned business called Red's Bar-B-Q.  For those of you who just hate it when I make references to race, I'm merely reporting what I heard on the video.  It seemed to be important to the people speaking that it was a black business, and therefore not done in protest.  If locals wanted to show disdain of white people through acts of mayhem on their businesses, they would have known not to touch Red's place.  Most of the looters were from St. Louis, as I understand it.  

I'm reading and looking at videos, trying to catch up on this.  I only just yesterday got interested in this, yet another cop murder of a teenager.

Oh, I forgot to say I would like to know why the police didn't just chase down the vandals rather than using the break-ins as an excuse to teargas the peaceful protesters who weren't guilty of anything but walking down the street, some choosing to yell at the cops they have a right to protest.

I pretty much did.  You don't have to watch the video.

While we are on the speculation train...

This has been posted on a blog

WIth this being said in the background...

I cannot tell 100%...  But since we are discussing videos...


#1 How’d he get from there to there?

#2 Because he ran, the police was still in the truck – cause he was like over the truck

{crosstalk}

#2 But him and the police was both in the truck, then he ran – the police got out and ran after him

{crosstalk}

#2 Then the next thing I know he doubled back toward him cus - the police had his gun drawn already on him –

#1. Oh, the police got his gun

#2 The police kept dumpin on him, and I’m thinking the police kept missing – he like – be like – but he kept coming toward him

{crosstalk}

#2 Police fired shots – the next thing I know – the police was missing

#1 The Police?

#2 The Police shot him

#1 Police?

#2 The next thing I know … I’m thinking … the dude started running … (garbled something about “he took it from him”)

Here's your question...WHY did they go at Red's Place?

PLEASE, as you appoint yourself the spokewoman for all that is black, give an answer.
