The article TIME wants to sell as giving us the real facts about the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson starts off with a non-sequitor:
How did Wilson encounter Brown?

Shortly before noon on Aug. 9, Brown walked into Ferguson Market and Liquor, a convenience store on West Florissant Avenue. He was with a friend, 22-year-old Dorian Johnson. At approximately 11:51, according to a police report, an unidentified officer received a call that a robbery was in progress at the store. But the suspect, who a Brown family lawyer has acknowledged “appears to be” Brown from surveillance footage, was gone when the officer arrived.
The convenience store robbery has nothing to do with the shooting unless you are pre-disposed to think Brown deserved to die.
