August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.
It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
An ugly preseason for the Rams continued as they lost to the Colts, 24-14, in their third game on Saturday at the Edwards Jones Dome. Nick Foles did shine to start the game going 10-for-11 for 128 yards with a touchdown. Chris Givens continued his strong exhibition play with two catches for 63 yards and a TD. The Rams play their final preseason game Thursday at home against the Chiefs.
