Another day, another unarmed teenager fatally shot by a cop. The Internet erupted with rage as news broke of the cop involved shooting of 17-year-old Michael “Mike Mike” Brown in a neighborhood near St. Louis, MO., last Saturday.
St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman said the fatal shooting occurred in Ferguson, just north of downtown St. Louis. Outraged Twitter users retweeted graphic photos of Mike Mike’s body laying in a pool of blood in the middle of the street.
Schellman said hundreds of angry protestors came out of nearby buildings. The angry crowd yelled profanities at the police. He said the crowd was under control by 5 p.m.
Mike Mike’s mother, Lesley Mcspadden, expressed her anger and grief in a video shot by Instagram user Brittany Noble. “You don’t do a dog like that,” she said. “You didn’t have to shoot him eight times… You just shot all through my baby body!”
