The memorial to Michael Brown on Canfield Drive has been removed and will be replaced by a plaque, Mayor James Knowles III and Michael Brown Sr. announced Wednesday.
Michael Brown Sr. shows off the plaque in memory of his son Michael Brown Jr. that will be embedded in concrete in the sidewalk along Canfield Drive on Wednesday, May 20, 2015. Michael Brown Jr. was shot and killed near the spot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, 2014.

The Right Scoop by ‘soopermexican’ had this to say, and I could not have said it any better myself.
The city of Ferguson will honor its most distinguished former citizen, Mike Brown, for his humanitarian activism in the fields of grocery-store thievery, immigrant entrepreneur battery, and assault of police officers. Truly, Mike Brown’s thuggery epitomized the best values of the black community in Ferguson and in many other towns in America, which is why he shall be honored forever.
If you can’t read the plague, it reads as follows:
In Memory of Mike O.D. Brown:
I would like the memory of Michael Brown to be a happy one. He left an afterglow of bruises and contusions on everyone he met. He leaves an echo thundering of paid protesters through the decrepit buildings of Ferguson, chanting softly that cops must die and whitey is to blame. He’d like the tears of those he beat up and of the business-owners whose livelihood were tore down in his name, to cry forever in his memory.
OK that’s not really what it says.
