ST. LOUIS, Mo. — After weeks of community protests, the family of Michael Brown is asking for silence and peace as they lay him to rest.
The funeral Monday will be a chance for people to focus on mourning the 18-year-old who liked computer games and had been eager to start college.
Brown’s great uncle, a pastor, will deliver the eulogy. The Reverend Al Sharpton is also expected to speak. Sharpton says the day should be about Brown’s legacy and people’s memories.
Brown was unarmed when he was shot August 9th by a police officer. A grand jury is considering evidence in the case. A federal investigation is also underway.
