Brown supporters from near and far form striking Ferguson tableau

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 08/25/2014 - 17:13

Messages written on papers and masks are displayed on a board along Canfield Drive where Brown was fatally shot by a police officer in FergusonBy Nick Carey and Edward McAllister FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - When the call came just after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer in this St. Louis suburb, Reggie Jones didn't hesitate. A friend had asked the 40-year-old screen printer to make the trip from his home in Charlotte, North Carolina, and produce a T-shirt to help support the family of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot dead by Officer Darren Wilson. Standing on the side of the road where protests have been held every night for two weeks, Jones sells T-shirts bearing the silhouette of a man with his hands up and the words, "Please Don't Shoot - R.I.P. Michael Brown." Sixty percent of the $10 he charges goes to the Brown family, the rest covers costs. "This community has been hurt bad by Michael Brown's death," Jones said.
