A group of demonstrators have filed a $40 million lawsuit against Ferguson, Mo., and its police department in the aftermath of days of angry protests that swept through the city this month.
The lawsuit, filed by six plaintiffs, accuses police of using “wanton and excessive force” when demonstrators took to the streets after Darren Wilson, a white officer with the Ferguson Police Department, shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, Newsweek reports.
Get em! Have that police force shut down!

Protest is when I say I don’t like this. Resistance is when I put an end to what I don’t like. Protest is when I say I refuse to go along with this anymore. Resistance is when I make sure everybody else stops going along also
Your mother did not raise you with a wolf in your chest so you could howl over losing a man.
Probably some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken.
Rented some tradition wooden plank boats used by fishermen in Ghana and met some young Ghanaians who definitely showed us a thing or two how it’s done. Thankful I was able to wade out and capture some awesome shots of these guys.
Back home in Paterson. Good night. Thanks for all the love and support from my family and friends. You are amazing.
Thanks to all who donated and help fund my trip to Ferguson(flown there twice).
I was able to connect with passionate local and out of town activist, self born out of the situation in Ferguson. I worked only with young adults. There passion for justice is unmatched. This is only the beginning! I hope to go back as much as possible to help in any capacity as they build and self manage a grassroots organization that will change Ferguson, STL and the country.
