[QUOTE=india100] BHM should have a moment of silence . My heart breaks with each picture of his parents face . We need Justice .

Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- Mourners began lining up at a St. Louis church hours before Monday's funeral of slain teenager Michael Brown. The line snaked around the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church on a sweltering St. Louis morning.

Retired mail carrier Hilliard Phillips, who once delivered on the street where Brown was killed, was among the mourners. He said there's power in numbers, and he hoped the outpouring of support for Brown and his family would spur society to take a look at itself.

"You can't really overnight change the behavior of a person, but sometimes they can be coerced in a sweet way. ... I would hope they could see people coming together in a solemn way to show their respect to someone," he said.

Rev. Al Sharpton was expected to deliver a eulogy discussing the "national view" of Brown's death more than two weeks after he was shot to death by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer.

Before Sharpton speaks, the Rev. Charles Ewing will deliver a eulogy from the family's perspective, according to a preliminary program provided by organizers.

Brown's death on August 9 sparked days of sometimes violent protests in the St. Louis suburb and concern over race and police shootings across the country. In the past several days, things have calmed down, and the town is slowly coming back to life.

Among the guests expected to attend the service were Martin Luther King III and the Rev. Bernice King; the Rev Jesse Jackson; the families of Trayvon Martin and Sean Bell; and celebrities Spike Lee, Diddy and Snoop Lion.

The White House is sending three officials to the funeral, including one who attended high school with his mother.

One of them is Broderick Johnson, who leads the White House's My Brother's Keeper Task Force. He'll be joined by Marlon Marshall, a St. Louis native who attended high school with Brown's mother, and Heather Foster. Marshall and Foster are part of the White House Office of Public Engagement.

Brown's father, Michael Brown Sr., called Sunday for a day of calm during the funeral.

"Please, please take a day of silence so I can, so we can, lay our son to rest," he told a rally in St. Louis. "Please. It's all I ask."

Viewing

The service comes a day after about 100 friends and family members attended a viewing of Brown's remains.

Brown's mother, Leslie McSpadden, spent about 20 minutes alone with her son, Crump told CNN on Monday. Brown's father, Michael Brown Sr. then joined McSpadden for 10 minutes, followed by Brown's grandmother, before other friends and family were welcomed in, according to Crump.

In an interview that aired Monday on CNN's "New Day," the mother of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin spoke about McSpadden, saying that Monday will be the "worst day of her life as a mother."

"There is no words that can bring comfort to her as a mother by seeing her son in a casket," Sybrina Fulton said.

Fulton appeared with McSpadden and Valerie Bell, whose son died in a police shooting in New York.

Brown's mother said she feels her son's presence.

"There's something about the rain, something about it ... I feel him," she said.

Fulton told her: "He's there, he's watching over you."

On Sunday, music flowed at a memorial at Greater St. Marks Missionary Baptist Church.

Its amazing how the history of a person's past behavior only seems relevant for the victims in this case.

He didnt choke anybody. The storeowners maintain that neither they nor employees gave the police the tape. The police asked for it.
Since they gunned him down, not because of the  cigarette theft ---they didnt know about it when they accosted him ---why did they ask for the tapes from the store? to fabricate a "reason" for killing him.

We hosted a Town-hall this Sunday with the Mayor, Police Chief, and the community to address improving community/police relations here in PHX. A mentally ill black woman was recently killed here in PHX by the PD. We're really confident that we can make some positive change in regards to police/community relations, not only here, but around the country. The Chief of police is fully supportive of body-cams, something that I've been calling for.

heathenist:

ferguson rly teaches a lesson in the lengths police will go to protect each other and white supremacy. they’d rather do all this than arrest one man. 

because he is a cop, and he’s white.

they ‘have each other’s backs’ so doggedly and determinedly that they would sacrifice a town of black people for one white cop

White people are ghouls

Savages.

This bothered me all morning. The idea that I live near people like this has been hanging over me for weeks and has literally leeched the energy and spirit from me. 

But when I went to Google to learn more about what happened, it turned out that the bar was not advertising this. Instead, a customer wrote it and he was then thrown out the bar and banned for life.

The bar owner went on to say that he had a half-black son.

And that they ”drove through Ferguson yesterday and [he] … would be the last person to joke about Michael Brown.”

This alone doesn’t fix things. Someone still wrote those awful things on that sign. But hearing the rest of this story does make me feel a little less terrible.

Because what I really need to see more of right now is proof that people aren’t as awful as I’m starting to believe they are.

So disrespectful!!

Smmfh see this that sh*t I’m talking bout!!!
