Ferguson Brown Memorial

A car passes two makeshift memorials to Michael Brown Tuesday, May 5, 2015, near where the unarmed, black 18-year-old was shot and killed last August by white Ferguson, Missouri, Police Officer Darren Wilson. The 9-month-old shrine in the middle of the road, marking the spot were Brown fell dead, has been hallowed symbol of a new civil rights movement over race and policing _ and to others, now more of an eyesore and a road hazard. The city, Brown’s family and a Washington-based mediator are grappling with the thorny question of whether to remove or replace it and risk further inflaming racial tensions. (AP Photo/Jim Salter).
