Funeral Held For Teen Shot To Death By Police In Ferguson, MO
He was a son, a friend, and most importantly a human being…

It was a sad day for the Ferguson, Missouri community and most importantly African-Americans and blacks all over the world, when it was announced that 18 year old unarmed Michael Brown was gunned down by a police officer.

The fatal shooting drew comparisons to the death of Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant, both young black men.

After so much protests and a national debate on where race stands in America, Michael was laid to rest today Monday 25th August 2014 at the Friendly Temple, Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis, Missouri.

At the funeral service, mourners sang, clapped and danced, remembering the teen. His body was in a black and gold casket, topped with the St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap he was wearing when he was killed on the 9th of August.

We did not know you Michael Brown, but all we can say with sadness in our hearts is rest in perfect peace.

    Black people shoot and kill other blacks in the hood and we hear nothing about it, why. The bigger picture is black shoot and kill other blacks on a daily and nothing is done to stop that.

      why do you enjoy saying stupid things .If people kill themselves in gang violence or what ever black or white it is different rather than when someone who is an enforcer of the law targets a particular set of people and kill someone that is harmless.please you mustn’t comment if you have anything sensible to say.

    What saddens me is the people raising money and protesting for the police who killed him. I mean, fine he’s innocent until proven guilty but carrying placards in his support, is this to encourage police to keep shooting unarmed teens? Let’s see how many placards they carrying when this happens to them or their loved one. It’s painful n it shows d racial line along this case, na wa.

    i really do mot understand why bn chose to approve bruno’s insensitive word. black on black crime never goes unreported and a lot of blacks have spoken out against it. you also have alot of white on white crime tbat the media downplays or just never covers. however you want to look at it nothing justifies these police killings
