“Hundreds of residents of a predominantly black suburb in Missouri took to the streets after police fatally shot an 18-year-old black man on Saturday. Angry protesters chanted “Kill the police!” during the protest.”

“‘I know they killed my son,’ Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, was heard telling an acquaintance. ‘This was wrong and it was cold-hearted.'”

“Missouri Senator Jamilah Nasheed said she would petition the US Justice Department for a formal investigation. The St. Louis County chapter of the NAACP called for FBI involvement.”

“‘With the recent events of a young man killed by the police in New York City and with Trayvon Martin and with all the other African-American young men that have been killed by police officers…this is a dire concern to the NAACP, especially our local organization,’ NAACP’s John Gaskin told AP.”
