A newly released video that was allegedly recorded hours before Michael Brown was killed shows that he exchanged a small bag for a box of cigarillos with store clerks in Ferguson, Missouri.

Director Jason Pollock told CNN on Monday that the video proves “that Brown did not rob the store before being stopped by police and that surveillance footage purporting to show Brown engaged in a robbery at the Ferguson Market and Liquor stores was actually video of Brown returning to the store to retrieve the cigarillos the clerks gave him.”

Pollock’s film, “Stranger Fruit,” which includes the never-before-seen footage, debuted at a film festival in Austin, Texas, over the weekend.

The mainstream media has jumped on the speculation that Brown may not have committed a robbery after all, but are ignoring the evidence that now points toward the possibility Brown may have been involved in a drug deal with the store clerk.

Pollock has told reporters that he believes “the footage shows Brown trading a small amount of marijuana for a bag of cigarillos around 1 a.m. on Aug. 9, 2014.” It is unknown if the bag contained marijuana, but a co-owner of the Ferguson Market has denied the filmmaker’s allegations, according to a report in Heavy.

As a result of the movie’s release, the mainstream media is once again chattering about the case of the young black man who was shot to death by a police officer, a case which was reported in such a manner that incited riots in Ferguson, Missouri, and gave rise to the Black Lives Matter movement.

The film sparked more protests in Ferguson on Sunday, which shots reportedly fired, but no one was injured. “Cops hunkered behind their cruisers during the shooting but no one was struck by the gunfire,” said one report.

 

One article suggests that Brown gave “something” to store clerks that “the filmmakers believe to be a small bag of marijuana. They inspect the bag and appear to smell it, the footage shows, then hand Brown what the documentary claims is a plastic bag containing two large boxes of cigarillos. Brown turns to leave, the new video shows, then passes the cigarillos back across the counter for what the documentary characterizes as safekeeping.”

The mainstream media has jumped on the speculation that Brown may not have committed a robbery after all, but are ignoring the evidence that now points toward the possibility Brown may have been delivery drugs to the store clerk.
