F FF e F er G us O n • At two meetings with distinctly distinctly different tones, the call Tuesday night was for justice. Packed houses at two churches heard speakers discuss the fatal shooting of Michael Michael Brown, 18, by a Ferguson police officer on Saturday afternoon — a killing that has rocked that suburb and drawn international attention to St. Louis. At Christ the King United Church of Christ near Black Jack, speakers included Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, who told the standing-room audience, “Justice must not simply be pursued, pursued, but in fact achieved. Instead of burning bridges in anger, we must rebuild them with love.” The racially diverse audience of about 400, many of whom were ministers, politely applauded applauded the speakers, even Ferguson Police Louis Head, stepfather of Michael Brown and Lesley McSpadden, Michael Brown’s mother, comfort each other Tuesday at the church. ee Br • Page a 9
