Funeral For Michael Brown

(AP) - The family of the unarmed black 18-year-old shot to death by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri lays him to rest today.

And the father of Michael Brown is asking protesters to take a break, so that the family can grieve.

The funeral is being held in St. Louis.

President Obama is sending three White House aides, and Gov. Jay Nixon had said he would attend, but declined saying the funeral is for the family, "Who deserve time to focus on remembering Michael."
