Ferguson: Michael Brown’s Mother Calls for Officer’s Arrest, National Guard Called In
The mother of slain black teenager, Michael Brown, made her first public appeal for the arrest of white Ferguson, Missouri Police Officer Darren Wilson on ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday morning. She was responding to the question posed by Robin Roberts, “What is justice to you?”
We’re just beginning to hear about the investigation as Ferguson’s police force was relieved of its duty by Missouri’s Governor last week. Governor Jay Nixon authorized the Missouri Highway Patrol to step in and control the rioting that has resulted in the wake of Brown’s death, and for a night, it seemed the changing of guard might have calmed the tension, but that was not the case.
Now, the National Guard has been deployed.
