Mike Brown was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014.
Michael Brown robbed a local Ferguson convenience store shortly before his death. Then Brown smashed police officer Darren Wilson in the face, severely injuring Wilson, before he was shot dead.
No charges have been filed against Officer Darren Wilson despite weeks of rioting and looting by angry blacks in Ferguson.

Many of the witnesses to the shooting have turned out to be unreliable. The top “witness”, Dorian Wilson, was previously prosecuted for lying to police. Several other witnesses reportedly confirmed Officer Wilson’s side of the story, that he was assaulted and shot Mike Brown after he felt his life was in danger.
But, this past week the attorneys for Michael Brown found two contractors working in the area at the time of the shooting.
Two men, shocked at what they saw, describe an unarmed teenager with his hands up in the air as he’s gunned down by a police officer.
They were contractors doing construction work in Ferguson, Missouri, on the day Michael Brown was killed.
And the men, who asked not to be identified after CNN contacted them, said they were about 50 feet away from Officer Darren Wilson when he opened fire.
An exclusive video captures their reactions during the moments just after the shooting.
“He had his f**n hands up,” one of the men says in the video.
The man told CNN he heard one gunshot, then another shot about 30 seconds later.
“The cop didn’t say get on the ground. He just kept shooting,” the man said.
So will these new found witnesses force St. Louis County to press charges against Officer Darren Wilson?
