    Memorial tree for Michael Brown chopped down day after dedication in Ferguson

    Someone chopped down a Ferguson, Mo., memorial tree dedicated to Michael Brown a day after its dedication, police said.
    Michael Brown's memorial tree in Ferguson, Mo., was chopped down less than a day after it was planted.

    Police aren't sure who slashed the young tree in January-Wabash Park, and officers are investigating the act as vandalism, KMOV reported. The stone memorial at the tree's base is missing, too.

    The Black Caucus of the American Library Association dedicated the tree Saturday to Brown, the 18-year-old shot and killed by a Missouri police officer last year.

    By Sunday morning, the sapling's leafy branches were sliced off of its trunk, and the placard marking the tree as Brown's memorial was gone

    Michael Brown was shot and killed in August.
    "I can't understand why someone would want to cut down the tree," one parkgoer told KMOV. "What, they want to start something back up again?"

    Passionate, sometimes violent protests erupted in the St. Louis suburb after Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed the unarmed teen in August.

    A grand jury declined to indict Wilson in November, further fueling racial tensions in the area and around the county.


    "It's not going to get any better if you keep having stuff like that happen," another park visitor said.

    Wall up the entire city like "escape from New York". Let the animals within fend for themselves.

    It's sad that they are memorializing a criminal. I'm sure there are lots of people black and white who are more deserving.

    Didn't he rob a store owner on video? Instead of planting a tree give that store owner a few hundred for his suffering, man is this country fucked...

    Who in the hell dedicated a memorial to this piece of shit? :facepalm:

    He commits a strong arm robbery, attacks a cop, gets shot dead for it and a lie incites riots based on that complete lie and now he is memorialized? Next we will hear that this was paid for with a federal grant. I'm sure the cops will be working in shifts until the culprit is found.

    More appropriate, and probably standing a better chance of remaining intact, would have been "The Michael Brown Memorial Compost Mound"

    That store owner is long gone, the "community" made sure of that! His store was the first places that was trashed when all the shit started. This ape robs him and the poor working man became responsible for his death.

    I live in a relatively quiet area, but black guys are currently running wild with crime.

    Yesterday, an 18 year-old feral youth asked to borrow a lady's phone outside of BJ's Wholesale. The lady handed him the phone, and the guy just walked away with it. When she chased him, the guy knocked her down and took her car keys.

    After stealing her SUV, he got into a high speed chase with the police until he slammed into 4 cars stopped at a red light. A couple of the innocent drivers had to go to the hospital.

    This entire debacle took about 20 minutes, and this f'ing idiot will be spending a decade in prison....for what?

    So incredibly stupid and criminal.

    What a pity. That tree actually had a lot more value to society than Michael Brown.
