Protests against Ferguson market appearing in video that supposedly exonerates Michael Brown

Protesters were out against the Ferguson Market tonight angry at the store for supposedly “hiding the video” that was released today.

The video released today purported to show an exchange of pot between Mike Brown and clerks in the Market for which he appeared to receive cigarillos.

The point the video tried to make was that he therefore was entitled to the cigarillos and was not stealing them when he came back to get them later that day.
