*Though the protests in Ferguson over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson have died down, racial tensions have not cooled in the area. In fact, they may be higher than ever.
To add insult to injury, the police officers that continually patrol the area where makeshift memorials are erected for the teen, are showing blatant disregard and even disrespect for the site.
According to the Huffington Post, an increasing number of flowers, teddy bears and signs continue to be near the site where Brown was killed; left there by people coming to offer their tributes.
Motherjones.com reported after Michael Brown’s mother came to place flowers at the site tensions between cops and the people there became even more inflamed. The report also alleged that soon after Brown’s mother arrived at the site, cops turned out with dogs and stood near to the memorial – and at one point, an officer let his dog off it’s leash and, to the shock of the onlookers there, allowed it to urinate on the memorial. An eyewitness spoke to reporters at the scene telling them that she saw the dog pee on the memorial and was extremely distraught about it.
