Hundreds Rally In Milwaukee To Remember Michael Brown

Rally Comes As National Guard Withdraws From Ferguson


More than 200 people held a rally in downtown Milwaukee, to remember Michael Brown, the Missouri teenager recently shot to death by police.

One of the Milwaukee speakers was Craig Stingley, whose son Corey died in 2012 when white citizens detained the youth in a West Allis convenience store. Stingley considers the death of Corey, Michael Brown, and some other African-American males as murders.

“Understand murder anywhere is murder everywhere,” he said to the crowd. “Our children were murdered, and the people who did it, they need to be held accountable for it.”
