Over the weekend, an unarmed 18 year old African American boy named Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, a suburban area in Missouri. According to reports, Michael was walking in the neighborhood with a friend when he was stopped and confronted by police. There are two different stories going around….the one from “witnesses” is that Michael had is hands up and was cooperating with the officers. The story from the officers is completely different. They said that Michael physically assaulted the officer by pushing the officer into the police car. So the officer shot him..a couple of times and now the city is outraged. They started a peace rally Sunday morning, but by the evening, the city turned upside down! People started to loot stores, throw bottles and rocks at the police, kick the police cars…it got pretty serious. Click the link below to read more about the story:
