    The officer who fatally shot unarmed Missouri teen Michael Brown in broad daylight on Saturday opened fire when the student's hands were raised and then 'stood over him and fired' when he lay wounded on the floor, according to witnesses.
    And during an emotional television interview on Monday evening, Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden, said that the teen was 'executed in broad daylight wearing sandals and shorts on the way to his grandmother'
    The shocking eyewitness accounts follow a promise by Ferguson police to name the officer involved in the 18-year-old's shooting by 2pm Tuesday.
    This self-imposed deadline followed an earlier announcement by the FBI that they would open their own investigation into the college students death amidst a night of fiery looting and rioting across the St. Louis suburb.
    That officer, who witnesses to the shooting claim is white, is currently on paid administrative leave following the death of the African American, who was shot up to eight times - including once in the face - during Saturday's incident while he was walking to his grandmothers.
    'The FBI has initiated a federal investigation into a potential civil rights violation that will supplement the St. Louis Co PD inquiry. We will continue to work closely with the PD and coordinate efforts as appropriate,' a spokesperson for the FBI said to ABC News.

    Indeed, US Attorney General Eric Holder said that the FBI will examine the circumstances surrounding the 18-year-old's death, especially considering the version of events witnesses describe differs wildly from that of the officer who shot the student dead.
    Many questions loomed over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who police said was shot multiple times Saturday after an altercation with an officer in Ferguson.
    It was unclear whether Brown or a man he was with was involved in the scuffle, and authorities were vague about what led an officer to open fire.
    Dorian Johnson told WALB-TV that he and Brown were walking home from a convenience store when a police officer told them to get out of the street and onto the sidewalk.
    Johnson said they kept walking, which caused the officer to confront them from his car and again after getting out of his car.
    Johnson said the officer fired, and he and Brown were scared and ran away.
    'He shot again, and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air, and he started to get down', Johnson said. 'But the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.'
    'We wasn't causing harm to nobody,' Johnson told the television station. 'We had no weapons on us at all.'

    Another witness, Piaget Crenshaw, told ABC News that Brown was standing to attention, facing the officer with his hands raised when he was shot.
    The officer claims there was a scuffle after Brown was stopped with a friend and that Brown pushed him into the squad car after he had left the vehicle to speak to Brown.
    A third witness to the shooting also claimed he had his hands in the air when he was shot in the town.
    Phillip Walker said he was on the porch of an apartment complex overlooking the scene when he heard a shot and saw a white officer with Brown on the street.
    Brown 'was giving up in the sense of raising his arms and being subdued,' Walker told The Associated Press on Monday.
    The officer 'had his gun raised and started shooting the individual in the chest multiple times.' The officer then 'stood over him and shot him' after the victim fell wounded.
    The race of the officer was not officially disclosed, but witnesses said he appeared white. He has been placed on paid administrative leave.
    The St. Louis County Police Department refused to discuss Johnson's remarks, citing the ongoing investigation.
    But Police Chief Jon Belmar previously said that an officer encountered Brown and another man outside a Ferguson apartment complex, and that one of the men pushed the officer into his squad car and they struggled.
    The FBI is looking into possible civil rights violations arising from the shooting, said Cheryl Mimura, a spokeswoman for the FBI's St. Louis field office.
    She said the FBI would be investigating regardless of the public attention surrounding the matter.

    Nearly three dozen people were arrested following a candlelight vigil Sunday night after crowds looted and burned stores, vandalized vehicles and taunted officers who tried to block access to parts of the city.
    Deanel Trout, a 14-year resident of Ferguson, said he was convinced the troublemakers were largely from outside Ferguson and that they had used Brown's death and the vigil as an opportunity to steal.
    'Most came here for a peaceful protest, but it takes one bad apple to spoil the bunch. ... I can understand the anger and unrest, but I can't understand the violence and looting,' Trout said.
    St. Louis County police spokesman Brian Schellman said 32 people were arrested for various offenses, including assault, burglary and theft.
    Two officers suffered minor injuries, and there were no reports of civilians hurt.
    Several businesses were looted, including a check-cashing store, a boutique and a small grocery store. People also took items from a sporting goods store and a cellphone retailer and carted rims away from a tire store.
    Some climbed atop police cars as the officers with riot shields and batons stood stoically nearby, trying to restrict access to the most endangered areas.
    A spokeswoman for St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley said tear gas had been used.
    Mayor James Knowles said a small group of people was 'creating a huge mess.'
    The unrest, he added, was 'only hurting ourselves, only hurting our community, hurting our neighbors.'

    Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told KSDK-TV that there's no video footage of the shooting from the apartment complex or from any police cruiser dashboard cameras or body-worn cameras that the department recently bought but has not yet put to use.
    The second person has not been arrested or charged, and it was not clear if he was armed, Jackson said.
    Blood samples were taken from Brown and the officer who shot him for toxicology tests, which can take weeks to complete.
    Earlier Sunday, a few hundred protesters gathered outside Ferguson police headquarters. Some marched into an adjacent police building chanting 'Don't shoot me' while holding their hands in the air.
    Officers stood at the top of a staircase until the crowd eventually left. A similar protest that attracted about 250 people was held Monday morning.


    Dead: Michael Brown was on his way to his grandmother's house in the city of Ferguson when he was gunned down at about 2:15 p.m., police and relatives said

    Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden, said she did not understand why police did not subdue her son with a club or stun gun. She said the officer involved should be fired and prosecuted.
    'I would like to see him go to jail with the death penalty,' she said, fighting back tears.
    The killing drew criticism from some civil rights leaders, who referred to the 2012 racially charged shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by a Florida neighborhood watch organizer who was acquitted of murder charges.
    Brown's family planned to speak later Monday at a news conference with their attorney, Benjamin Crump, who also represented Martin's family.
    John Gaskin, who serves on both the St. Louis County and national boards of directors for the NAACP, said the group was 'outraged because yet again a young African-American man has been killed by law enforcement.'
    Ferguson's population of about 21,000 people is almost 70 percent black.

    And when will these scumbags release this cops name? They are breaking the law by not doing so. Good thing they aren't a young black kid, 'cause they might be murdered by cops for doing that......They shot this boy 8 times for doing less.

    Tips For Being An Unarmed Black Teen

    INFOGRAPHICCivil RightsRaceViolenceNewsISSUE 50•32 • Aug 14, 2014




    With riots raging in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting death by police of an unarmed African-American youth, the nation has turned its eyes toward police brutality, social injustice, and the continuing crisis of race relations throughout the U.S. Here are The Onion’s tips for being an unarmed black teen in America:

    • Shy away from dangerous, heavily policed areas.
    • Avoid swaggering or any other confident behavior that suggests you are not completely subjugated.
    • Be sure not to pick up any object that could be perceived by a police officer as a firearm, such as a cell phone, a food item, or nothing.
    • Explain in clear and logical terms that you do not enjoy being shot, and would prefer that it not happen.
    • Don’t let society stereotype you as a petty criminal. Remember that you can be seen as so much more, from an armed robbery suspect, to a rape suspect, to a murder suspect.
    • Try to see it from a police officer’s point of view: You may be unarmed, but you’re also black.
    • Avoid wearing clothing associated with the gang lifestyle, such as shirts and pants.
    • Revel in the fact that by simply existing, you exert a threatening presence over the nation’s police force.
    • Be as polite and straightforward as possible when police officers are kicking the shit out of you.

    I'm reading all sorts of awful stuff on Tumblr. Tweets from journalists for example, things that I probably never would have found out through mainstream news.

    and you'd better believe we'll see more of it unless drastic measures are taken.

    Jesus fucking christ, I can't even believe my eyes watching these videos or looking at these photos. What the police are doing is disgusting, disgusting, disgusting. To shoot an unarmed young black man for simply being black, shooting him 8 times including in the face, lying and saying it was from a scuffle, manipulating the media to narrow his entire being down to a threatening stereotype, and then interfering with the media in violent ways, and interfering with peaceful protesters in violent ways... I am in disbelief, despite knowing that this could be Anytown, USA, where something like this could happen. To think of what the minority citizens endured before the murder of this young man, as well, I can't imagine. Disgusting.

    Missouri Highway Patrol took over. No more riot gear, and things were relatively peaceful last night. Claim officer's name to be released today.

    I'm out....peace!
