Ferguson council faces calls for reform at first meeting since teen's shooting

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 09/10/2014 - 13:04

Demonstrators protest against the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in FergusonBy Carey Gillam FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - City leaders in Ferguson, Missouri, confronted demands for reform from an angry crowd on Tuesday night at their first public meeting since last month's fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen by a white police officer ignited weeks of protests. The atmosphere was charged from the opening minutes as members of a largely black audience that numbered in the hundreds shouted over remarks by city council members, rising out of their seats and chanting in solidarity. Some wore T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan "Hands Up Don't Shoot," a phrase that has become a national rallying cry for activists protesting the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and other acts of what they say are police abuse. As council leaders attempted to discuss routine city business, one man shouted: "What about Mike Brown?" Tensions have been high in the mostly black community of 21,000 people since the Aug. 9 shooting of Brown.
