Michael Brown

The family of the unarmed black 18-year-old shot to death by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri lays him to rest later this morning.

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

The funeral will be held in St. Louis. President Barack Obama is sending three White House aides, and Gov. Jay Nixon said he will attend.
