The fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager Saturday by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb came after a struggle for the officer’s gun, police officials said Sunday, in an explanation that met with outrage and skepticism in the largely African-American community.
The killing of the youth, Michael Brown, 18, ignited protests on Saturday and Sunday in Ferguson, Mo., a working-class suburb of about 20,000 residents. Hundreds of people gathered at the scene of the shooting to question the police and to light candles for Mr. Brown, who was planning to begin college classes on Monday.
David Banner tweeted an interesting comment. Whiche is true in the sense that black life is not valued. Yes this is a catastrophe but black people need to stand when ANY BLACK is killed (I.e Chicago war zone) not just when a white cop kills a member.
One this is crazy is that a cop was recorded calling black people animals. Showing the mentality of these Missouri police.
How many more soldiers will we lose before we stand together?
How many more mothers faces will we look at before we stick together?
