Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 9.43.47 AMThe city of Ferguson should sue Michael Brown’s parents for endangering their officers and putting other citizens of Ferguson in danger with their “peaceful” protests.

ST. LOUIS — Lawyers for the parents of an unarmed, black 18-year-old who was fatally shot by a white police officer in a St. Louis suburb say they plan to file a civil lawsuit Thursday against the city of Ferguson.

Attorneys for the family of Michael Brown announced their plans in a statement Wednesday night.

The lawsuit had been expected. Attorneys for Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said at a press conference in early March that a wrongful death lawsuit would be filed “soon.”
