Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rep. Lacy Clay join protesters in Ferguson

FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – Demonstrators protesting the death of Michael Brown continued for 6th straight night along West Florissant Ave.

The sound of horns honking continued as a line of protestors held signs, some of them with their hands in the air shouting, “Don’t shoot.”

Demonstrators also received a surprise visit from civil rights activist Jesse Jackson.  Jackson walked with demonstrators to the spot where Michael Brown was shot and killed.   Jackson encouraged demonstrators to channel their energy into action at the voting booth.

The man in charge of security, Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson, told demonstrators he would have some news at 1:00pm Saturday. He told demonstrators the news would include a change they would appreciate.

U.S. Congressman Wm. “Lacy” Clay walked the length of the demonstrations with Johnson Friday night.  He told FOX 2 he’s been in touch with the family and has promised them justice from the federal level.
