Why Did Michael Brown Steal Between 80 to 100 Swisher Sweets Cigarillos Before He Was Killed?

Bryan Preston has a theory:
An associate of Michael Brown, his rap ally, was in favor of hollowing out Swisher Sweets cigarillos, and stuffing them with pot to smoke or possibly to sell.
This is a thing.
Swisher Sweets are among the cheapest cigars available. The amount Brown is alleged to have stolen, about $43, is enough for between 80 and 100 of the cigars. Why steal them in bulk?
While you think about that, look at this. Brown has a 21-year-old cousin named Anthony Livingston. He is mentioned here.
Livingston also posts on Facebook. Here’s his cover photo.

None of this says that Brown’s killing by Officer Wilson was justified. We still don’t know exactly what happened that day. But the narrative of the gentle giant heading to college that has dominated the past week may be far from complete, and his actions prior to the confrontation may be extremely relevant.


  1. whta would be interestung to find out now is what happened between the store clerk calling 911 (assuming he did) at the local cop shop. if they sent officers out looking for the suspect and in small town Missouri there obviously wasn't much else happening and so the the cops story could be true of being attacked however if the cop was just cruising around and picked on the thieves coincidentally then they are doubly incompetent because they ween't even doing their jobs on preventing real crime.
