The memory of Trayvon Martin, the 17 year old African American who had been shot a Florida neighborhood was bitterly reminded as yet again a 18 yr old African-American was been shot multiple times and killed by an officer. This led an outrage among the people of Ferguson who came out on streets staging protests. Some protestors damaged police cars, shouting slogans against the law on the racial attack. Along with staging protest on streets, the protestors also broke into stores carrying away goods and looted cash from a check-cashing store. Along with that many liquor stores, boutiques and grocery stores were also attacked and looted.
Such a demonstration by the protestors definitely was not welcomed by the authority as the Mayor of Ferguson, James Knowles expressed his thought to reporters. James stated that by creating such a big mess, the people are only hurting themselves, their community and their own neighbor and that with all this nobody will gain further making their just facts unjust by their behavior.
