[A video released by Ferguson police showed what appeared to be Michael Brown robbing a convenience store the day that he was killed by policeman Darren Wilson.  The video was used to malign Mr. Brown's character by showing him acting like a violent punk.

As so often happens, the police withheld a video tape made hours earlier that showed that Mr. Brown traded a bag of marijuana with the store's employees in exchange for several cartons of cigarillos and then left the cigarillos with the store's employees who put them in a bag and left it behind the counter for Mr. Brown to pick up later.

The tape the police actually released shows Brown returning to the store to collect his merchandise.  Brown reached over the counter and took the bag of cigarillos that he had bargained for just a few hours earlier.]
