Attorneys for Michael Brown’s family say the process that led to a white officer not being indicted in the fatal shooting of the unarmed, black 18-year-old was unfair and broken.
NEW YORK (CBS St. Louis/AP) — The Rev. Al Sharpton says the decision not to indict a Missouri police officer who fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old is “an absolute blow.” Sharpton spoke in Harlem Monday night […]
After months of heated protests over the death of Michael Brown, Sharpton called the situation in the St. Louis suburb “very tense.”
Police will work to protect peaceful protesters after a grand jury’s decision in the Michael Brown shooting case is announced, but those who cross the line into violence will face consequences, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon warned Tuesday.
“Every other agenda is good, but no agenda should come ahead of justice for Michael Brown,” Sharpton said.
The Rev. Al Sharpton is scheduled to be in Ferguson this morning to kick off four days of events for what he’s calling “Justice for Michael Brown Weekend.”
