Wake crowd protests Michael Brown shooting

Dozens of people gathered in downtown Raleigh on Sunday afternoon to protest the shooting death of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo. The shooting has become a cause celebre and has sparked a week of protests, sometimes violent, in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb, where police initially responded by donning military-style riot gear and wielding automatic assault rifles.
