Recently, in Ferguson, Missouri (in case you’ve missed it): - Ferguson Chief of Police Thomas Jackson called a press conference Friday morning to release the name of the officer who killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown. Jackson used the opportunity to release a video and a 19-page report about a convenience store robbery the morning of the shooting, before naming officer Darren Wilson as the killer. It was only admitted in a separate press conference later that afternoon that Wilson hadn’t actually known that Brown was a robbery suspect when he stopped him and that, in fact, he stopped Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson for walking in the street. . . .
