A grand jury has made a decision on whether to charge a Missouri police officer over the death of an unarmed black teenager.
Cal Brown, Michael Brown’s stepmother, said during the funeral service for the 18-year-old that he had had visions about his death weeks before he died, as reported by the IBTimes. Brown, who was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Missouri, was laid to rest at the town’s Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church.
About 5,000 people, including activists, religious leaders and politicians, reportedly arrived at the funeral service where Brown’s family and relatives remembered the recent high school graduate, referring to him as a “gentle giant” who wanted to live life so that one day “the world would know his name.” Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, wiped tears from her eyes as attendees spoke about her son.
In the church filled with mourners, Cal Brown recounted a conversation she had with the teenager where he told her he was “‘dreaming of death, seeing pictures of death, seeing pictures of bloody sheets hanging on clotheslines.’”
“That touched me. That’s what it was like when he was laying there on the street [after being shot]. He prophesied his own death,” she said.
