RIOTS IN ST. LOUIS SUBURB
AFTER COP KILLS TEENAGER
An 18-year-old unarmed black youth
was shot and killed in the street
by a Ferguson policeman yesterday,
which resulted in rioting and looting last night
in that St. Louis County neighborhood.
Protest marches and demonstrations
have been halted by police,
as the FBI is now investigating the matter.
Black and whites have come together
since the incident, to promote a lot
of positive, peaceful and constructive
dialogue on this unfortunate incident.
Our prayers are with the family of
the dead youth, and the neighborhood.
