St. Louis Police Delay Releasing Name Of Mike Brown Shooter
Even though they were expected to do so today during a news conference, St. Louis County officers are delaying releasing the name of the officer who fatally shot Mike Brown. The news comes after more riots and protests ensued in the wake of the unarmed teen’s death.
Protesters gathered outside the St. Louis County Justice Center on Tuesday morning to demand justice in the case of Michael Brown, 18, shot by a Ferguson officer on Saturday.
About 250 protesters had gathered by about 10:30 a.m. Police closed off Carondelet Avenue near the Justice Center, and officers waited inside with riot gear at hand and plastic ties to use as handcuffs should they be needed.
Protesters walked with their hands up in a “Don’t shoot” pose that has been used by protesters since Brown’s shooting. Some witnesses said Brown was surrendering like that when he was shot.
“Hey hey, ho ho, racist cops have got to go,” some in the crowd chanted. They also complained that there aren’t enough African-American police officers and in the prosecutor’s office.
St. Louis County and Ferguson police say they do not plan to release the name today of the officer who shot Michael Brown.
The name of a Ferguson officer has been circulating on social media with claims that he shot Brown. Ferguson police said that officer was not the officer involved in the shooting.
According to CNN’s TJ Holmes authorities will now make the family’s attorney go to court to force them to give up name.
