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.
The Rams have one final preseason game this week to try and work out the kinks. They host the Chiefs on Thursday night. St. Louis is 0-and-3 in exhibition play following Saturday's 28-14 home loss to the Colts. Running back Tre Mason will sit out with a hamstring injury.
