Filmmaker Jason Pollock, has ignited more controversy surrounding the Michael Brown incident in Ferguson, Missouri three years ago.  The unarmed teen was fatally shot by a local police officer – Brown was unarmed.  New video shows Brown in the same store that he was accused of stealing Cigarillos from and it appears he was making a trade, Marijuana for small cigars.  The video suggests that he didn’t take the cigars straight away by promised to return later to pick up his trade item. 

National protests jumped off after Michael Brown was shot down in the street.  The mainstream media devoiced his parents by tearing down the young man’s ethical standings by saying that he stole from the store just minutes before he was senselessly gunned down.

Predictable, the stores attorney says no such transaction took place.  The eighteen-year-old was shot by Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson who is white.  Brown who is African American was unarmed, Wilson walked away scot free. 

The new documentary is called “Stranger Fruit,” it premiered Saturday at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
