Ferguson protesters march inside St. Louis County Police Department

CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) – Protestors gathered outside the St. Louis County Police Headquarters in Clayton Wednesday afternoon. Demonstrators said they came to express their democratic voice on the, “National Day Against Police Brutality.” They planned to speak at a scheduled public meeting of the St. Louis County Police Commission, but it was abruptly cancelled.

Brown, 18, was shot and killed by a Ferguson Police officer in August. Demonstrations have now gone on for more than 70 days. New details have emerged recently about the shooting. Leaks have appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the New York Times from the officer involved in the shooting that sparked the protests.


If you're going to have a protest sign, it's always a good idea to spell the words correctly. Otherwise, you look like a "moran."

Democrats start to point fingers

And it begins. It was just a matter of time before the politicos started to grumble.

Democrats start to point fingers

Democrats are starting to play the blame game as they face the possibility of losing the Senate in November.

Tempers are running high a month out from Election Day, with polls showing Democratic candidates trailing in the crucial battleground states that will decide whether control of Congress flips to Republicans.

The behind-the-scenes tension broke into the open last week when former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) questioned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) decision not to endorse Democrat Rick Weiland in South Dakota’s Senate race.

Pro-immigrant advocacy groups, meanwhile, are saying Democrats should not blame them if Latino voters don’t turn up to the polls on Election Day. They say President Obama made a tactical blunder by postponing an executive order easing deportations.

And grassroots organizers are grumbling about Alison Lundergan Grimes’s (D-Ky.) bid to take down Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), arguing her campaign has been disorganized.
