CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) - Protestors marching on Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch's office are demanding justice for Michael Brown. Hundreds of protesters from all over the world are in town to have their voices heard.
They started at the Justice Center then went marching through the streets of Clayton. They're asking for County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch to charge officer Darren Wilson. The crowd was mixed in age, in race and nationality. There there wasn't a huge police presence. Things started out peaceful and hopefully that continues.
Protesters have been calling for removal of McCulloch from the Michael Brown shooting case, saying he cannot oversee the case without bias. In the 1960's, McCulloch’s father was a police officer killed in the line of duty. Protestors have also demanded the arrest of Darren Wilson, the police officer who fatally shot Brown in early August.
The protest is part of a “Weekend of Resistance," planned as a response to the police shooting of Michael Brown. More than 6,000 people say they plan to participate in the various protests and rallies this weekend. On Saturday, October 11th, protesters plan to march in downtown St. Louis. On Sunday, October 12th, there will be an interfaith event.
After last night's unrest in the Shaw neighborhood where protesters got violent with police and police responded. Some are concerned that could happen Friday.
