Man Marches Alone for a Shooting Victim that Most Ferguson Protesters Are Completely Ignoring
Since Michael Brown was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson in August of 2014, the city has been a hot bed of anti-police activism.
While most eyes seem to be on law enforcement, another tragedy recently took place in Ferguson.
On August 18th, 9-year-old Jamyla Boyden was inside of her home when gunfire rang out, injuring her mother and taking her life.
A man by the name of Shawn Williams wanted people to know who Boyden was, so he took to the streets wearing a powerful sign:
KMOV captured Williams on video marching the streets. In the video, he expresses:
“Somebody know who killed that little girl. We got to find out who did it. It’s the community’s responsible to protect our children, if we don’t stand up for our children who will we stand up for?”
While Williams wasn’t joined in his show of solidarity, 200 people were marching to protest the death of Mansur Ball-Bey. Ball-Bey was an 18-year-old, who was shot in the back by law enforcement after he allegedly pointed his gun at officers.
At this time, Boyden’s killer has yet to be apprehended.
