In Ferguson during a demonstration, a riot broke out
In Ferguson Missouri, during a demonstration in honor of the second anniversary of the death of Michael brown, riots broke out. The shots were heard.
Witnesses reported that the car raced through a group of demonstrators who blocked a street during a demonstration on the occasion of 2 anniversary of the death of Michael brown. The car hit the young man so hard that he flew into the air. When the car drove away, shots were fired. We will remind, 18-year-old black Michael brown died after he several times shot white police officer Darren Wilson. Prior to that, brown has no criminal record or arrests by the police.
The man was seriously wounded and was placed in a private car, which took him to the hospital, said the witness. Police responded to reports of gunshots, but found no evidence that someone was struck, said press Secretary Ferguson Jeff Small, who refused to speculate on why shots were fired. Around 10 PM, the protesters were disbanded.
Protesters during the March briefly chanted and sang for 15 minutes and then dispersed peacefully. Four people were arrested, said a police spokesman. Earlier in the day, several hundred people gathered for a memorial service and tribute to brown with a moment of silence at the spot where Michael was fatally shot by officer Darren Wilson after a confrontation on 9 August 2014.
The state refused to press charges against Wilson, as well as the U.S. Department of justice later acquitted him, concluding that he acted in self-defence. He resigned in November 2014.
Father brown, who is also named Michael brown, said in brief remarks during the service that the anniversary is a sad day for him and his family, and the world in General.
This incident also led to the investigation of the Ministry of justice, which found samples of racial bias in the police force and municipal court system in Ferguson. The Federal Agency and the city agreed this year to make radical changes.
