    2. Eyewitnesses: He was on his knees with his hands up.

    4. Convenience store owner and clerk: There was no robbery and we didn't call the cops.
    5. Ferguson PD: Okay, we admit it, Wilson didn't know anything happened at the convenience store and we determined no crime was committed.

July 15, 1964
A 15-year-old African American named James Powell was shot and killed by New York Police Lieutenant Thomas Gilligan. The fatal shooting stirred rioters to race through Harlem streets carrying pictures of Gilligan, starting what would turn into six days of chaos, leaving one dead, 118 injured, and more than 450 arrested.

  13. Since my first encounter with MKW we’ve probably had two or three subsequent interactions. This most recent one comes after a terrible attack on Anwan Glover, the Slim Charles actor and co-star from The Wire. 
Thankfully Anwan is recovering and in great spirits.
