Ferguson Police Chief Release Officers Name, Community says it's a cover up

Police announced Friday morning that Darren Wilson is the officer who is being investigated in the shooting of Micahel Brown. In a halting and sometimes disorganized statement, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson announced that his department was releasing details of a strong-arm robbery that had occurred in the area prior to the shooting of Michael Brown. Police were responding to a 911 call about the robbery when they encountered Mr. Brown. No details about the officer’s or Mr. Brown’s actions were released during the press conference. Packets containing some information requested by the press through FOIA were distributed at the statement.
