Greetings MCBA Members
Mound City Bar Association is committed to supporting the community, after the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown which occurred on August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri. He was killed after being shot multiple times by an unnamed Ferguson police officer. On August 11, the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a civil rights investigation of the fatal shooting, and the next day, President Obama issued a statement committing federal resources to investigatory efforts.
In light of the seriousness of this issue, shortly, we will be providing a list of our attorneys who will be available to assist eye-witnesses to this tragedy at no cost. On Sunday August 17, 2014, the National Bar Association, in collaboration and support with MCBA, will hold a Rally and March concerning the latest events in Ferguson. The event starts at 3:00pm and will be held at Greater Grace Church, located at 3690 Pershall Road, St. Louis, MO 63135. It is our understanding that Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III will be present.
