The center opened on the site of the torched QuikTrip that was destroyed during violent rioting in 2014.
During the ceremony a battle broke that involved Michael Brown’s parents.
Police were forced to intervene!

In October 2014 Michael Brown’s mother, grandmother and auntie brawled on the corner of Canfield and West Florissant over the rights to T-shirt sales. Brown’s mother Leslie McSpadden reportedly assaulted and robbed grandmother Pearlie Gordon of $1,400.
Michael Brown’s parents were awarded $1.5 million in June after their son robbed a store, assaulted the store’s minority owner, attacked a cop, grabbed for his gun, charged the cop and was shot dead.
The money will be split between Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, and father, Michael Brown Sr. https://t.co/fnB8x2dvJs
