St. Petersburg, Florida – Michael Brown’s family has hired the same Florida civil rights attorney who currently represents Trayvon Martin’s family.
Brown,18, died Saturday after being shot multiple times by a suburban St. Louis police officer. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says it all began when Brown physically assaulted the police officer, pushing him into the officer’s vehicle. He said there was a struggle inside the car, and at some point Brown reached for the officer’s weapon. One shot was fired inside the vehicle.
The vultures gather. That didn’t take long.
