At 36 seconds you can clearly see the clerk clasp currency in his hands.
I’ll be going to download this as a backup, then try to get more info.
IM FINNA DOWNLOAD THIS RIGHT NOW
He clearly had money in his hands. And Mike clearly gave him something before grabbing the cigar wraps.
Now the white supremacists are going to say that the money that the clerk had in his hands didn’t come from Mike. It will be interesting to see how they twist this one to demonize Mike.
THIS IS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED:
Mike and his friend were messing around a bit joking loudly until then the store clerk told them to buy what they wanted and leave.
Mike and his friend probably messed around some more and the proceeded to buy the rellos.
After he bought them, the clerk grabbed the money that was given to him and then tried to escort them out of his store.
Mike feeling annoyed grabbed him by the shirt and told him to back off.
He then proceeded out of the store.
Right off the bat the claim that Mike robbed the store makes no sense.
First off how could he just rob the store like that with other people around without being armed??
Secondly, was the store clerk armed? If so why didn’t he point a gun at Mike if he was being robbed???
Third, what kind of robber robs a store right in front of the clerk and owner of the store. Anyone with common sense who was going to rob a store wouldn’t do it in front of the clerk because they would fear getting shot.
Fourth, what kind of robber robs a store with other people in it and ten casually walks out? Don’t you think he would fear being identified and caught if he robbed that store?
Lastly, why hasn’t other video footage from multiple angles been released? Why hasn’t footage of the store before and after the altercation been belief. This video footage doesn’t prove any criminality on Mark’s part.
A) it is grainy as fuck
B) Mike clearly gives the clerk something(whether or not it is money has yet to be determined from that angle and quality)
C) the clerk CLEARLY has money in his hand as he is escorting the two out of his store(whether or not it came from Mike has yet to be determined from that angle and quality)
But from the evidence that we have at this point, it is safe to assume that Mike paid for his rellos and was escorted out by an annoyed clerk. Mike got frustrated with him for picking on them and that is why he pushed him off and casually walked out of the store.
Also we don’t know if the clerk was following or harassing Mike and his friend from the point that they walked in the store. We don’t know if the clerk had expected them to steal something(he probably did). I am sure you all have seen the vine of the brother being followed and harassed in every store that he goes in.
We also don’t know if the clerk had yelled racial slurs and insults at them when they were in his store. He could have called them the “n word” and that is what could have set Mike off. Audio and video of higher quality must come out for these things to be determined. But overall, saying that this grainy as fuck shitty quality video proves that Mike Brown is a thief and deserved to be killed is racist white supremacist bullshit.
Even if he stole everything in that store, there is no excuse to murder someone who surrendered and had their hands up in the streets.
