Rocking a Mike Brown shirt, Jeezy rally support in the teen’s death.
“It’s a shame in today’s society we have to protect our loved ones from those who are sworn to protect us. We have to stand strong together and let our voices be heard across the nation. We will not tolerate innocent children being slain. Michael Brown may you rest with the angels!! #SaveOurChildren #StLouisStandUp”

Ferguson police asks for Calm and Rest after three days of unrest.
“We’re just asking that the protests be peaceful,” Chief Thomas Jackson told reporters. “We understand the anger, we understand that people want answers, and we understand that we’ve got a problem. But we’re just asking people to be peaceful.”
Jackson released no further details about Saturday’s shooting death of Michael Brown, 18. He said that police planned to release audio recordings from the day of the shooting “shortly,” but he did not give a date.
He also said that the department planned to meet with Brown’s mother on Thursday.
Police asked, but did not require, that protests on Wednesday take place before dark. Jackson said that police would not interfere with protests after dark unless they turned violent or blocked traffic. A prayer march was planned for Wednesday afternoon, organized by a local church.
From NBC news, Mike Brown’s friend who was at the scene of the shooting is also speaking out on the incident.
