Renewed Rioting After Killing of Missouri Teen

Over 100 people gathered again at the St. Louis County Courthouse Tuesday, Aug. 12, after two nights of violence to protest for an unarmed Missouri African American teenager killed by a police while the renewed riot remained peaceful.

According to RushHourDaily, protesters called for justice for 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot to death by a Ferguson police on Saturday, Aug. 9, and the jailing of the police.

The protesters were shouting “hands up, don’t shoot” outside of the courthouse, referring to reports that said Brown had raised his hands for surrender while being shot.

The FBI is investigating the case a civil rights one, and St. Louis County is also investigating the incident.

Police said the suspect fired the gun in a struggle with Brown in the police car, but they did not say why Brown was in the car. They also said one shot was fired during the struggle and more shots were fired after leaving the police car.

Benjamin Crump, a lawyer for Brown’s family, said the court needs to do its own investigation and not rely on St. Louis County police.

“There were many, many witnesses who have talked to family members and they paint a very different picture than police witnesses,” Crump said on a Tuesday CNN interview.

The police’s identity was expected to be released Tuesday, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that police said the name and race of the police, a six-year veteran who is on administrative leave, would not be released.
