A group of residents of Ferguson, the city in which riots broke out after the murder of an 18-year-old black teenager, are suing local authorities seeking $ 40 million in compensation for violating their civil rights, RIA reports. "News" with reference to the agency Reuters.

Residents of Ferguson sued 40 million dollars


The Missouri District Court received a lawsuit from six people, including a 17-year-old teenager who was detained by police during the suppression of protests right in a cafe. The city and county authorities, the Ferguson and St. Louis County Police Chief, and several law enforcement officials are named as defendants.

The document says that the security forces met the public protest "with a demonstrative display of armed force and treated US citizens as participants in hostilities."

Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead in Ferguson on August 9. According to preliminary information, police officer Darren Wilson fired six shots at the unarmed teenager, but there is no reliable information about the reasons for the incident.

Conflicting information and the inability of the police to answer the questions raised, the initially peaceful protests with the participation of friends and family of Brown escalated into massive clashes with the police for many days. The police used rubber bullets and tear gas to quell the riots, and later the National Guard entered the city.

      They are materialists to the bone. In our city, they somehow turned off the lights for half an hour - nothing happened, except in half a year they noted a surge in the birth rate. The same thing happened in the states, when robberies and broken windows were turned off right in the city. This is how they are ..

        perhaps only half a year later they noted a surge in the birth rate.


        Even on the campaign, the birth rate surge was not connected with this blackout :)

        They are materialists to the marrow of bones. In our city, they somehow turned off the light for half an hour - nothing happened, only after half a year they noted a surge in fertility.

        As you know, after half a year, only an abortion can be done, not give birth

    Ferguson residents violated the curfew.
    But Yanukovych for the introduction of the curmandant hour, after the unarmed golden eagle was burned alive on the "peaceful" Maidan, the world press simply "gobbled up"

    The states have thousands of laws and thousands of amendments to them. It is quite possible, with a good lawyer, to receive such and even a large amount.

    Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead in Ferguson on August 9. According to preliminary information, police officer Darren Wilson produced six shots were fired at an unarmed teenager, but there is no reliable information about the causes of the incident.

    Six shots - so that for sure! What was the policeman thinking? About the tactics of the Second World War or the Vietnam War? When the Americans threw grenades and machine gun fire into the shack, and only after that did they enter the "cleansing" operation. And the fact that there may be children, old people and women ... naturally, there were not enough brains.

      There is such a concept: "Stopping action". Have you seen this "TEEN"? Google it, I highly recommend it. This is a wardrobe with a height of 2 meters and a weight of 140 kg. Of course, for sure! Do you prefer to watch this ?:

      Speaking of "women and children" in the Vietnam War. There were several cases when a boy ran up to the Bell UH-1 "Iroquois" helicopter ready to take off and threw a grenade there.

    Can residents of the DPR and LPR also be shown Kiev for the destruction of apartments, public buildings and infrastructure? And after the dead, the loss of health (wounded) and moral suffering in general?

      It is not a correct comparison. In the swamp there is whining from a well-fed life. There were no workers there, the Sobchaks, Nemtsovs and others were promoting. They have a zero rating. And in Ferguson, a teenager was killed, whether he was good or bad, they simply took his life, especially an African American, racism It hasn't gone anywhere, in more than 50 years you won't get rid of it. angry
