Police chief Thomas Jackson said officer Wilson”was not aware that Brown was a suspect in a robbery” when he stopped him on the street that afternoon. He said Wilson approached Brown and Johnson because they were “blocking traffic.” Jackson reiterated that the robbery and the altercation were not related. Then when one person asked why the police department released the surveillance video because the media asked for it.
