    Support for Ferguson

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Erin Wheeler and other protesters peacefully assembled in Pope Marine Park in Port Towsend, Washington, on August 20, to show support for Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who died after an alleged altercation with police in Ferguson, Missouri. "I want the police to be held accountable and to tell the truth! I want justice to be served and not just a slap on the wrist as most police get for murder in the name of the law. I want a formal apology to the people of Ferguson and the families of all affected in Michael's unfortunate death," she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    About 50 people gathered Wednesday evening in Port Townsend, Washington for a Mike Brown Protest. The protest was to show support for the people of Ferguson and get justice for Michael Brown. It was also to help raise awareness about police brutality in the United States. It is important for Ferguson and Mike Brown's family to know that people on the other side of the country support them and want justice to be served.
