In the midst of the many passionate protests taking place in Ferguson, two police officers were shot. This wildly catastrophic event took the progress of those fighting against the police department two steps back.
However, after the shooting, the protesters returned not to protest but for a candlelight vigil in honor of the officers shot. This act of peace has made the relationship of the Ferguson protesters and the police department clear. They don’t want revenge, they want peace.
All of this action took place shortly after the police chief announced his resignation said Brad Reifler. Even as the turbulence continues, one this is true for the town. They refuse to accept anything less than progress.
