Time magazine Person of the Year runner-up article on Ferguson doesn't mention Brown broke the law: UPDATED

Time Magazine, thankfully, spared decent society the indignity of naming the Ferguson protesters as its Person (Persons?) of the Year. Its Alex Altman offered an air-brushed story about them--and failing to mention that by all sensible accounts Michael Brown was shoplifting before he was shot to death by a police officer--and that the "Gentle Giant" charged the cop.

And Altman's piece didn't spend much time on the arson and looting that took place when the St. Louis County grand jury voted not to indict Darren Wilson, the cop who shot Brown, for murder.

Correction December 17: Altman mentioned Brown's shoplifting in one sentence.
