FERGUSON (Worthy News)– Over the weekend in cities throughout the United States, demonstrators marched in solidarity with Missouri protesters over the killing of Michael Brown, a unarmed black teenager, who was shot by a police officer. Despite a curfew imposed by the Missouri governor, one person was critically injured after being shot, and seven others arrested as clashes continued to break out over the weekend in Ferguson, Missouri. A private autopsy revealed the teen was shot six times, including two in the head, as the Justice Department ordered a second autopsy into the teenager's death as the FBI took over the investigation.
