Ferguson community leaders show strength after destruction

Anderson Cooper 360

Pastor Carlton Lee repeatedly called for the arrest of Officer Darren Wilson. Michael Brown’s father worships there. Last night, his church was one of a dozen or so buildings that were set on fire. Pastor Lee tells Anderson that he is experiencing feelings that are similar to losing a child.

Varun Madaksira owns The Original Reds Barbecue in Ferguson. When his business burned during protests last August, he moved his grills outside and fed protesters. Sadly, Reds Barbecue suffered far more extensive  damage last night. Now, Madaksira says he is not sure that he will be able to reopen. He tells Anderson that despite all of this, he is still “a firm believer in the fabric of a strong neighborhood.”
