PoliticusUSA’s Justin Baragona was in Ferguson Thursday evening and was able to capture images of a large, peaceful and symbolic march through the town.
The march stopped for a rally at the Canfield Green apartment complex where Mike Brown was tragically shot on Saturday. Once the rally was over, protesters marched again, this time to the burned out QuikTrip, which has been deemed Ground Zero in Ferguson.
On the way to the QuikTrip, Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson, who is now in charge of law enforcement overseeing Ferguson, addressed those leading the march and joined the protesters. The residents of Ferguson finally realized they were free to assemble and protest without fear of police intimidation.
