Wednesday, August 13, 2014
(Ferguson, MO) -- Protestors are once again taking to the streets of Ferguson, Missouri over the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Al Sharpton arrived in the St. Louis suburb Tuesday to offer support for the family and try to bring calm to the city.
Tuesday afternoon, the civil rights leader said protesters who responded to the deadly shooting with violence are dragging Brown's name "through the mud." The city has been rocked by rioting following the weekend shooting death of the unarmed black teen by a local police officer.
