 FILE - In this Monday, Aug. 11, 2014, file photo, a makeshift memorial sits in the middle of the street where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by police, in Ferguson, Mo. By almost all accounts, Brown was engaged in some sort of physical struggle with Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson just moments before he was fatally shot. That confrontation, perhaps more than anything, may help explain why grand jurors ultimately decided not to indict Wilson for killing Brown. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson, File)
