Missouri State Rep. Keith English suggested in a Facebook post that those marching from Ferguson to Jefferson City and calling for an end to racial profiling by police instead end their route in Mexico. The march is one of many actions that have come from the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who was not indicted and has since resigned. English, a Democrat from Florissant, posted a map of the United States with a line drawn from Missouri to Mexico. Above it, he stated: “Protesters are marching to Jefferson City this week. I gave them a map to help in their cause.” The map has been shared on social media, drawing both criticism and support.
