Transcript for Ferguson Commission Member: 'Riots Are the Language of the Unheard'
Okay, Alex, thanks very much. Joined by Brittany, a member of teach for America here in St. Louis. You were in the middle of the protests, what did you see? Saw a lot of things. Mostly a community in profound grie grief, utter anguish. People don't think there is a chance for justice. I was caught in the middle and tear gassed. I was standing with the community, demanding just justice not just for Mike brown but all our children. You heard the prosecutor saying there was no probable cause. What do you think he missed ? Well, I'm not a legal expert. Since Mike brown has passed we have had two more police-involved shootings in St. Louis. And we saw an unarmed man shot down, a 12-year-old shot down by police. We need meaningful action moving forward. In the protests last night, who was there and tried to take over? A lot of the folks in the family we built in the protest community and across the community were there. Unfortunately things turned. But, you know, Dr. King told another news man that riots are the language of the unheard. We have to say what are we not listening to in this community? Thank you so much. Bring in Steve osunsami right now.
