Instagram users protest Mike Brown killing and police violence

Mike Brown Instagram 1
The small suburban town of Ferguson in St. Louis, Missouri, has been hit with martial law after peaceful protests went awry. 17-year-old Michael Brown, affectionately known as Mike Brown was killed by a police officer after fleeing the scene at the local QT. After two days of protesting, the U.S. government sent in large fleets of police to secure the premises, disallowing any exits or entry into Ferguson.

Given that the media has been removed from the town, many news platforms are relying on the town’s citizens to share what’s really going on in the streets. Gas pumps blocked and children being pepper sprayed, many St. Louis residents are running out of logical options to seek justice for Mike Brown while keeping themselves safe.

Thanks to social media, people from all over are standing in support of the people by sharing their thoughts and spreading the word while most mainstream outlets have chosen to focus on celebrity news.

Take a look at just a few #MikeBrown Instagram memes.
