Anger follows police shooting in St. Louis suburb

Next month, a silent march will start at 11 a.m. Aug. 9 from the site of the shooting to Greater St. Mark Family Church, about a mile away, according to the Ferguson Action Council, which is organizing a Ferguson Uprising Commemoration Weekend. The group also plans an art event, rap and rock concerts.

City officials say they're planning a jobs fair and other events that weekend and are happy that a St. Louis radio talk-show host enlisted more than 250 volunteers for a cleanup effort this past Monday.

Asked what Ferguson residents can expect Aug. 9, Beasley was optimistic.

"Were hoping for, obviously, (is) a little bit of a different situation" from the protests that turned violent following Brown's death, Beasley said. "They can expect we're going to be very encouraging, supportive, but also make sure the laws are upheld, but making sure people have the right to exercise their civil rights the proper way."
