  1. I can only imagine how many more lawsuits will happen now that this is out! Money hungry attorneys, and residents of ferguson. IF these people get any money, they can pay it to the business owners who’s businesses were broken into, robbed and burned to the ground. Maybe the guy that was with Mike Brown breaking the law, can sue because he was asked to get on the sidewalk….poor guy. I’m about tired of hearing about Ferguson.
