Letter: Outraged by the tone of Ferguson protesters

I see in The Forum (Aug. 19) that Shannon Bacon planned a gathering on the Main Avenue Bridge in support of Michael Brown. She wants people to come forward at this event to support the people of Ferguson and end police brutality. She says people are outraged. Yes, I’m outraged at the tone protesters have taken at night-time and the looting. Maybe, just maybe, the police officer was afraid for his life. Maybe, just maybe, Brown was a thug and law-breaker. I don’t know.
