    MSM coverage re MB movie -- a documentary (?)

    The film "Stranger Fruit" re MB shooting & aftermath was screened Saturday at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin TX. NYT link below has 2:32 min vid clip (I believe from movie; I haven't seen yet.)

His encounter with Wilson soon followed...
    “Mike did not rob the store,” says the film narrator.
    “It was a misunderstanding,” Brown’s mother, Lezley McSpadden, adds."

Instead, Mr. Pollock believes that the new video shows Mr. Brown giving a small bag of marijuana to store employees and receiving cigarillos in return as part of a negotiated deal. Mr. Pollock said Mr. Brown left the cigarillos behind the counter for safekeeping....."
