Officers were asking for calm in the neighborhood.
“We wasn't causing harm to nobody. We had no weapons on us at all,” Dorian Johnson said. He was walking home from a convenience store with his friend, Mike Brown. They were walking on the street when a police officer in a vehicle told the boys to get out of the street.
Dorian Johnson says they kept walking, causing the officer to confront the boys, first from his car, then he got out of the car, firing a shot. He said he and Brown were scared and ran away from the officer.
“He shot again, and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air and started to get down,” Dorian Johnson said. “And the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.”
So the cop harasses these guys for being in the road, they ignore him, cop gets tough stops the car, kid's run, he starts shooting at them running...
Cop should of just kept on, it seems he has no other reason for F'in with them other then getting mad..
I didn't know the police were allowed to shoot at you running away in the back?
WTF is wrong with some of these guys..

Hundreds Yell "Kill The Police" After Teen Is Fatally Shot
Still no video to prove this:
If you find a video that shows the crowd yelling "kill the police" please post or is this just propaganda?
An unarmed, 18-year-old Missouri man in who was shot multiple times by by a cop on Saturday was involved in a altercation with the officer before being killed, police said at a news conference on Sunday.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said Michael Brown, of Ferguson, Mo., was struck "more than just a couple" times by gunshots fired by a Ferguson Police Department officer after a "physical confrontation" that began in a police vehicle and then spilled on to the street. The officer is now on paid administrative leave, Belmar said. The Ferguson Police Department reached out to Belmar immediately following the incident requesting that the St. Louis County Police Department launch an independent investigation, he said.
Witnesses tell News 4 that Mike Brown, 18, was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot multiple times by a Ferguson police officer. Police have not confirmed those claims and have not released any details of the incident other than an officer was involved and that he has been placed on administrative leave.
Dorian Johnson tells News 4 he was walking with Brown when the officer confronted them and drew his weapon.
“He (the officer) shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said Dorian Johnson, a friend Brown’s. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.”
St. Louis County NAACP President Esther Haywood told News 4 that Brown was shot once by the officer and then an additional nine times as he lie in the street. Police have not confirmed that account.
UPDATE 9:25 p.m.:
FERGUSON, Mo. (TheBlaze/AP) — The St. Louis County
NAACP said it wants the FBI to investigate the death
of the teenager shot by a police officer. John Gaskin,
a member of the local NAACP chapter, said the group
wants the FBI to handle the probe to ensure a
thorough, transparent investigation.

A large crowd yelled “kill the police” while confronting a group of officers
I'm not defending the police action, but in the "defence" of the police the above is why they shoot first ask questions later, as it's probably not the first time they hear that line, and that shout out is not going to make things better.

Cops frequently subdue female suspects which is a nice way of saying that male cops beat up women.
