Mike Brown Memorial Tree Vandalized
It’s been eight months since 18-year-old Mike Brown lost his life at the hands of police in Ferguson, Missouri. As residents, activists, friends and family members work to remember his legacy during the fight for equality, memorials in the teen’s honor are being vandalized.
Less than 24 hours after being dedicated, a stone memorial was found missing. A memorial tree for Brown was found cut in half.
The memorial is positioned along a walking trail in January-Wabash Park in Ferguson. Police do not have any suspects and are currently investigation.
