‘Basically a cross burning’: Michael Brown memorial burns, police blamed


http://twitter.com/#!/coco_dominic/status/514394742113972224

A makeshift memorial for unarmed teen Michael Brown burned to ashes in Ferguson, Mo., last night, and while a few think votive candles might be to blame, some are pointing the finger at police.

Somebody set Mike Brown's memorial on fire. Man I have no words. People are just evil.

So the dirt and debris smells like an accelerant. It definitely smells like some sort of alcohol! I'm legit shocked now. #Ferguson

I'm sitting here deep in my feelings that cops watched Mike Brown's memorial burn& did nothing. They have fire extinguishers in their cars.

Someone set Mike Brown's memorial on fire last night in #Ferguson. And folks wonder why protestors still feel the need to be in the streets.

Just like his death was a modern day lynching RT @NFLGoodwitch: Setting Mike Brown's memorial on fire is basically a cross burning.

These white folks set fire to a memorial set up for Mike Brown, but folks still want to argue if racism is a problem.

— r. (@Are0h) September 23, 2014

So. Someone set fire to the Mike Brown memorial. The need to destroy even the right to grieve says everything about white violence…

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson released a statement on Mike Brown memorial fire. "We're all saddened by the fire," he said.

Mike Brown's memorial was destroyed after being set on fire. These people are heartless, I will not die until I see change.
