Rick Turner has told City Councilors he sees similarities between what happens in Charlottesville and Ferguson, Missouri. Turner (pictured) is also upset about some figures City Police Chief Tim Longo provided to the councilors earlier this year.

They voiced support for the late Michael Brown, who died near St. Louis. The funeral for the 18-year-old is happening Monday.
