A cellphone video made immediately after the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer in Ferguson could bolster arguments that Michael Brown was surrendering when he was shot, legal analysts said. The video first aired by CNN shows two landscapers who were working near the street where Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. In the video, a man can be heard saying Brown had his hands in the air, while one of the workers raises his own hands up as if to demonstrate.
