Jesse Jackson Visits Sixth Day of Protests in Ferguson

by Storyful 0:15 mins

Despite wet weather, protests in Ferguson continued for a sixth day after an 18-year-old was shot dead in a confrontation with police in the St Louis County city. On Friday, August 15, civil rights activist and Baptist minister Reverend Jesse Jackson visited protesters. Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter and St Louis native also travelled to Ferguson.Witnesses said Michael Brown was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot on August 9. A peaceful evening vigil on Sunday, August 10, descended into looting and vandalism. Police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse protesters in subsequent days, but a change in police command from county to state officers on Thursday brought a change in tactics and a calmer evening. The hub of the protests is a QuikTrip convenience store that was looted and burned on Sunday night. Credit: Instagram/iamtnaz
