More than a year after the death of Michael Brown, a new documentary is being released to shed light on the truth behind what happened.

“Ferguson Cover-Up,” was made by The Huffington Post’s  Jason Pollock who revealed how Brown’s death at the hands of Darren Wilson affected him and millions around the world.

Pollock spent the last year “focusing on these issues and working overtime to figure out what my contribution to this world-changing event would be.”

“This event has haunted me, as I know it has haunted many others. I needed to find out the truth!” Pollack said as he announced the arrival of “Ferguson Cover-Up” on The Blog on Monday (Sept. 21). “So I set out on a yearlong investigation of the facts, and what I have found needs to be seen and heard by the world.”

Pollock says his film will “show America what really happened” the day Brown died as well as examine why people took to the streets as Ferguson burned after Wilson received no punishment for Brown’s killing, instead of the burning itself.

“The film will also detail the story of racism and white supremacy in the Ferguson area so that everyone can understand that the protests that took place in the wake of Michael’s death were not just a random incident, but a straw breaking a camel’s back after hundreds of years of racism in the region,” Pollack stated regarding the documentary’s focus to “show the injustice that took place to Michael Brown on that hot summer day last August.”

“From the very moment that Michael’s body hit the pavement that day a carefully crafted campaign of misinformation, manipulation, and outright lying has taken place by the Ferguson Police Department, the St Louis Police Department, and the St Louis Prosecutor’s office,” the filmmaker and activist added. “The 24/7 right wing media have constantly perpetuated these lies, and they were so well crafted that they tricked CNN and many other outlets into falsely reporting the issue over and over again.

“Sadly, because of all this distortion, the average American thinks that justice was served to Michael Brown and his family, and that Darren Wilson should be a free man. These views could not be further from the truth,” Pollack continued while giving credit to the “dedicated group of Ferguson activists” who have followed everything pertaining to the Brown case and helped put the film together.

“Through archival footage, shot footage, and my production team’s exhaustive research, this film will show how the Ferguson Police Department ignored key evidence and worked with the prosecutor to cover this all up. This film will explain the corrupt nature of witness 40, who was used by the Prosecutor in the grand jury process, even though Bob McCulloch knew she was lying under oath about witnessing the shooting. We will also show the manipulative and racist way that the Ferguson police department leaked evidence to smear Michael’s name, and so many more turns the case took away from justice.”

  • First, I commend Jason Pollock in making this documentary. People deserve the truth to be shown. The death of Michael Brown started a new chapter of the black freedom movement without question. The sick cop Darren Wilson’s actions speak for themselves. We all show our empathy towards the family of Michael Brown. Their lost is our lost. We want change and part of that change is for the people to get the facts as it pertains to the events of Ferguson, Missouri. One thing that I do know about Midwestern people is about their strength and passionate desire for truth. So, we are in solidarity with our Brothers and our Sisters in Ferguson who are fighting for real justice. The prosecutor Bob McCullough did a terrible job in supporting the testimony of a fraudulent Witness #40 (who lied under oath). There are many unanswered questions and that is why a trial should have occurred. The slander against Michael Brown (who was an unarmed person who was shot to death) by reactionary forces is disgraceful. The majority of the witnesses have said in a report by the federal government that Michael Brown turned around and put his hands up in a distance from Wilson, but Wilson resumed continuing shooting. We know that the DOJ report documented the classist and racist actions of the Ferguson Police Department. So, we are against the system of racism/white supremacy and we want true investments in Ferguson. So, we will continue to fight for the human rights of black people.
