Missouri Governor Jay Nixon along with Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson took questions from frustrated members of the community Friday morning in Ferguson.
The news conference came just hours after the name of the officer involved in Michael Brown’s death was released to the public. That officer, Darren Wilson, was identified along with more details about what may have lead up to Brown’s death.
Upset demonstrators expressed frustrations over the way the officer’s name was released and coupled with Brown’s involvement with a convenience store robbery.
Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson released surveillance photos of who they believe to be Mike Brown involved in the robbery of a convenience store. Jackson says investigators believe Brown stole a pack of cigars and was later shot by Officer Wilson.
Nixon said while the new facts are out, the focal point should remain to figure out how and why Michael Brown was killed and how to get justice.
After abruptly leaving a Friday morning news conference, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson held another media briefing to explain why he released the officer’s name along with the surveillance video of a robbery suspect believed to be Michael Brown.
Demonstrators were upset Friday morning when the chief told the crowd Brown had allegedly robbed a convenience store just moments before he was shot and killed by officer Darren Wilson.
Jackson said he released both pieces of evidence at the same time because the media had asked for both. However, he did say the robbery and the shooting of Michael Brown were not connected.
“All I did was release the video tape because I had to, ” Jackson said.
During the news conference Jackson said the officer who shot Brown did stop him and his friend because they were walking down the middle of the street. That officer had not responded to the robbery call.
Jackson said he has not met with Brown’s family again. There was a meeting scheduled but the Brown family had not had a chance to consult with their attorney.
Jackson gave a few more details about officer Darren Wilson calling him a “gentleman” and a “quiet officer.”
“He’s devastated. Absolutely devastated. He never intended for any of this to happen.”
Wilson served two years with the Jennings police department and has been a Ferguson officer for four year.
Lawyers representing the family of Michael Brown are speaking out this afternoon after Chief Jackson released the officers name and a video tape showing their son allegedly taking part in the robbery of a store clerk. Attorney Daryl Parks says the family has confidence in the federal investigation. But, Micheal’s mother is upset because the video has nothing to do with Micheal being killed. They say it was careless to release the footage. Representative Daryl Parks called the release, “character assassination.”
The lawyers also asked for the demonstrators in Ferguson to remain calm. They want nothing but law and order. Parks says the mood of tonight should be like that of last night. But, people always create sideshows in events like this.
The family knows that Michael Brown was not perfect. Representatives say that what happened in the 18 years before the shooting do not matter. They say Michael Brown was shot while surrendering to police.
