Brown, 18, was unarmed when he was killed by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. The exact sequence of events is in debate: police say Brown went for Wilson's gun, while eyewitnesses said Wilson grabbed Brown and then chased him down the street, firing.
"We are setting up a reward/fund for the police officer who shot this thug," the Missouri Klan chapter told the Southern Poverty Law Center in an email. "He is a hero! We need more white cops who are anti-Zog and willing to put Jewish controlled black thugs in their place. Most cops are cowards and do nothing while 90% of interracial crime is black (and non-white) on white."
Ferguson police Friday released Wilson's identity, and revealed Brown was named as the primary suspect in an alleged robbery at a convenience store near where Brown was shot a few minutes later. Surveillance video from the store appears to show a man of Brown's description shoving the clerk before walking out.
Parallel investigations, conducted by the St. Louis County police and the FBI, are ongoing.
