A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.
But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.
Mike Brown, a 17 year old high school grad set to begin his first day of college Monday was shot 10 times for reportedly stealing candy and running, while unarmed.
The neighborhood community came up in arms and began to protest against the police officers on the scene and dozens of police backup and k-9 dogs were called in.
The Civil Rights Movement isn’t over, it has never been over. Something has to change.
