ROSEBUD, Mo. – Demonstrators marching from Ferguson to Missouri’s capital to protest the police shooting death of Michael Brown were met with opposition as they passed through a rural town.
Television station KRCG reports that some people in Rosebud shouted obscenities and held signs telling them to “go home” and someone put an empty bottle of beer, a melon and some fried chicken in the path of the protestors.
The Columbia Missourian reports that at least one person displayed a Confederate flag, and the back window of a bus traveling with the marchers was broken by a bullet.
The protest march began after a grand jury decided last week not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who was white, for the Aug. 9 shooting of Brown, who was black and unarmed.
