Police are investigating after an armed man was shot by a private security guard in Ferguson, Missouri, The Associated Press reports.
An attorney for former Ferguson, Missouri cop Darren Wilson, who fatally shot unarmed teen Michael Brown in 2014, said Monday that his client admitted to using the N-word to describe Black people.
These new statements are part of a civil lawsuit that Michael Brown's family has filed against Wilson, the City of Ferguson and the St. Louis County Police Department.
What makes the video the source of ire for protesters is that after Brown’s death at the hands of Police Officer Darren Wilson, who was not charged in Brown’s death, police released surveillance footage from the Ferguson Market, allegedly showing Brown pushing one of the clerks—participating in what the police called a “strong-armed robbery”—and supposedly justifying the officer's use of force against the unarmed teen.
"Stranger Fruit's" director says this new footage proves that on the day that Brown died, he didn't try to rob a local convenience store.
