Michael Brown’s Jr funeral will take place on Aug. 25.

19 Aug


Michael Brown’s parents said on the “Today” show Tuesday that the arrest and prosecution of the officer who fatally shot their son is the only thing that can bring peace to the streets of Ferguson, Missouri. “Justice will bring peace, I believe,” Lesley McSpadden said of unrest in the St. Louis suburb, hours after fresh clashes led to at least 31 arrests. “The violence needs to stop,” McSpadden said, calling it a “distraction.” Michael Brown Sr. said he had faith that “eventually justice will prevail.” Also Tuesday, the family’s lawyer announced Brown’s funeral would take place on Aug. 25.
