Dealing drugs does not make you a drug dealer, according to CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
Cuomo spoke out in defense of Ferguson police shooting ‘victim’ Michael Brown, following the release of footage that allegedly shows him overseeing a drug deal.
“that the filmmakers behind the new documentary Stranger Fruit released the footage, claiming it shows the incident “in a different light.”
One of the filmmakers, Jason Pollock claims the footage shows that Brown didn’t rob a store as police reported, but rather he dropped off marijuana at 1 AM then returned just prior to the shooting to collect on the store owner’s ‘payment’ – cigarillos.
Former NYPD detective, Chris Houck said the new video of Mike Brown, if true, “shows him as a drug dealer”. Cuomo then responded by saying “But that doesn’t mean — that doesn’t make him a drug dealer even if that’s all true.”
So to recap: Just because he was seen dealing drugs, it doesn’t mean he was a “drug dealer.”
