(Ferguson, MO) -- A group of protestors in Ferguson, Missouri is suing local police officials for 40-million dollars. The lawsuit is being filed by six people who say law enforcement engaged in "militaristic displays of force and weaponry" as if they were "war combatants." Racial protests broke out just hours after black unarmed teenager Michael Brown was killed by white police officer Darren Wilson on August 9th. Neither the city nor the police departments have made any comments on the lawsuit.
