Mike Brown the 18 year old unarmed teen, who was executed by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer was laid to rest yesterday, in an emotional and moving service attended by over two thousand mourners.

In a rousing speech, the Rev. Al Sharpton reminded mourners that 18-year-old Brown “should be in his second week of college.” And described how Brown’s body was left on the street for hours after he was killed “like nobody cared about him, like he didn’t have any loved ones, like his life value didn’t matter.”

We’re required in his name to change this country,” Sharpton said to cheers. “Justice is going to come! Justice is going to come! Justice is going to come!”

The vast majority of mourners at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church were African-American and many said they were deeply moved by the funeral.

Brown’s stepmother shared how Mike told her a month before he was gunned down in the streets that he kept dreaming about death.

“I’ve been dreaming of death, seeing pictures of death, seeing pictures of bloody sheets hanging on clotheslines” ‘That touched me” his stepmom said. “That’s what it was like when he was laying there on the street (after being shot). He prophesized his own death.”

Right now, a St. Louis County grand jury is considering whether to charge the white officer with a crime. Wilson, 28, has not been seen since the killing and has made no statements.

      Saw that one. I was crying then I became angry. Once Mike walked away from that car, he wasn’t a threat. If you can’t chase down a 300lb boy, you ain’t fit for duty. Tazer him, heck hit him with the baton but to shoot him AT LEAST six times?! No. I’m not here for that. When will it end?

    Now, in the 21st century, we get to where we got some positions of power. And you decide it ain’t black no more to be successful. Now you want to be a n—– and call your woman a ho. You’ve lost where you’ve come from.
