By: James Achisa and Shante Wooten
In response to the police shooting that killed an unarmed African-American teen, Michael Brown, protests in St. Louis have turned into a veritable uprising.
Eighteen-year-old Brown was shot to death by an unidentified Ferguson police officer on Saturday afternoon. The St. Louis County Police are doubling down on their claim that Brown physically assaulted the officer who confronted him for reasons that appear to be a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
