Bah, bah, black sheep

He just wanted so much,” his stepmother Cal Brown said. “He wanted to go to college, he wanted to have a family, he wanted to be a good father.”  
Unfortunately he also wanted a box of  cigars and also wanted the $44 purchase price. So he just took them, shoving aside the retailer with the same intimidating physical advantage that he would use against a policeman just fifteen minutes later. Accounts differ on whether or not the cigars played any role in Brown's detention and death, but the release of the damning video was enough to instantly downgrade the "victim" from innocent lamb to marauding wolf.  Where have we seen this script play out before? Once more, the war of the narratives is on!
