CNN’s ex-cop shouts down black activist over latest Ferguson shooting: ‘Michael Brown was a criminal!’ (Raw Story)

CNN panel discussion about the latest Black Lives Matter protests and violence in Ferguson turned into a shouting match on Monday after former NYPD Detective Harry Houck tried to defend the killing of Michael Brown, who he called a “criminal.”

After several days of peaceful rallies in Ferguson for the anniversary of Brown’s death, activist Mo Ivory told CNN host Anna Cabrera she was sad to learn that “some fools” had been involved in gun violence Sunday night.

“Prior to that, it had been so peaceful and it had been refreshing to see that there was a celebration going on, to really celebrate that there has been some movement, to come together and commemorate an incident that was so tragic,” Ivory remarked, noting that the media had only reported the police version of events so far.
