It seems that everyone has an opinion, often heated, concerning the death of Michael Brown at the hands of a Ferguson, MO police officer.
So much is yet to be determined about the shooting, but that isn’t stopping celebrities from weighing in on the matter via Twitter. Some are urging caution with pleas for peace, while others say an “abuse of power” is already evident.
What’s happening in #Ferguson is devastating. Wow.

nothing makes me more ashamed of america than the abuse of power. our country is supposed to be ruled by laws, not the gestapo. #Ferguson
