Lisa Johnston | email@example.com | Twitter: @aeternusphoto Michael Brown was apparently unarmed when a Ferguson police officer shot and killed the 18-year-old on Saturday, Aug. 9. Protest continued on the seventh day after the shooting in the Ferguson neighborhoods surrounding the apartment complex where the shooting occurred. Because of the unrest in Ferguson, Mo. Gov. Jay Nixon had declared a state of emergency and ordered a curfew for the city. Rev. Jesse Jackson made a surprise stop in St. Louis to minister to the situation. He gave a piggy back ride to Jaton Izeman, age 7, and she led the protest cry of “Hands up, don’t shoot!”as hundreds marched in Ferguson in protest of the violence surrounding the shooting death of Michael Brown.
