Arrests that were made in Ferguson on August 18.

At a time when many are asking what the long-term solutions are to the social and criminal-justice issues being raised by the killing of Michael Brown, a coalition of legal experts and advocates have stepped forward pledging their services.

In a letter drafted and signed by 45 individuals from local law schools, firms and other service providers, the coalition has come together to "work towards changing the current situation of distrust and divisiveness." The letter lists several areas of concern, including the "nationwide problem of the death of, and violence against, youths in communities of color" and the policing of youth from those areas. As Washington University School of Law professor Mae Quinn points out, the shooting death of eighteen-year-old Brown all began as a traffic stop.

"Many of these cases stem from criminalizing normal adolescent behaviors that aren't otherwise criminalized except in communities of colors," she says.

Included in the 45 signatures are professors from Wash. U. School of Law, St. Louis University Law School, the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, St. Louis Youth Advocate and individual law firms. One of the signed firms, the ArchCity Defenders, is already hard at work demanding that the city of Ferguson declare amnesty for residents who have warrants out due to unpaid fines for nonviolent offenses, such as unpaid traffic tickets (read all about this proposed amnesty here). Quinn says she is currently gathering signatures from the coalition to support the amnesty.

Here is the group's letter in its entirety, as well as the signatures:

Members of the Saint Louis advocacy community on recent events in Ferguson, MO

August 24, 2014
St. Louis, Missouri

As members of the Saint Louis advocacy community, we represent faculty, attorneys and other service providers who, through our work, pursue justice in our region and beyond. First, we offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Michael Brown and to all who have been touched by this tragedy. We hope that through our collective efforts, we can all work together to heal and begin to receive answers to the many questions and concerns that we have about the events that transpired.

We are especially concerned about the following:

-- The nationwide problem of the death of, and violence against, youths in communities of color. Respect needs to be taught, exemplified, and reinforced.

-- The militarized policing tactics used against members of the community this past week, the myriad First Amendment violations, and apparent resistance to transparency and information sharing. We must begin to address and remediate these issues.

-- The need for police training and accountability concerning conflict resolution, use of weapons and tear gas, protection of constitutional liberties and rights, and appropriate levels of response that should be used in a variety of situations. We should not ignore improprieties, constitutional violations, and unjust deprivations of rights and liberty as we find or search for the right balance of order in our communities.

-- The need to work towards solutions regarding the underlying causes of racial, social, class-based and educational inequality, discrimination and division, as well as other causes that led to the frustration and distrust illustrated in Ferguson but are present throughout the region. Historic examples include social, educational and economic instability, and lack of employment and entrepreneurship opportunities must be addressed.

We hope that we can help address these issues and focus on solutions. We stand at the ready to engage in debate and dialogue, to offer legal and other assistance, and to otherwise support both individuals and the community at large as appropriate. By joining together, we can work towards changing the current situation of distrust and divisiveness to one of collaboration, cooperation and the promotion of justice.

When have you known a lawyer do do stuff with out something in it for them?.........

Cest, The Constitution wasn't written before the revolution, or even during it. The Constitution guarantees the Right to peaceably assemble, and to present grievances. The founding fathers (the guys who wrote and approved the Constitution) sent out the army to put down disorderly protests amongst the citizens.

Thx Cest for the enlightening comment.. But the Boston Tea Party happened a long , long time ago and by now some assholes should of by now figured out a new way to get a point across!! I'm sure during that time in history we did not have the poor did not have a EBT card that I pay for to run to the nearest Burger King to free load a Whopper. I understand Free Speech, but now they r getting a million dollars from the government to buy diapers for their 5 welfare kids is disgraceful!! I grew up in ferguson and if you have seen what once was a great community turn into a rundown shithole because of the black population you would see it a little different..but I see your from LA?!? My husband is also , so I understand your complete ignorance and liberal view point!! You poor thing ..having lived all over this country I've seen all the 23 yr old food stamp / welfare shitheads who sit on their lazy ass playing video games while we foot the bill!! And as for my ability to read n retain the information ? I have a masters degree in Biology and have been a Zookeeper specializing in Elephant and Rhino reproduction!! So the next time you take your little brats to the zoo you can thank me for the view!! So take all the assholes that want to loot n riot with you ?!? By the way the St. Louis Zoo is free so you guys should be used to not paying for anything as usual.

cest...i get what you're doing. you're trying to educate ppl....you have a strong opinion and want to get it out there. but insulting people isn't gonna do anything. you have a lot of really good points. ill give you that. but this person you're insulting did not insult you and this is one of the least offensive posts I've seen you comment on....so there is no reason to be like that. the only person hearing you is you...and maybe me a little bit...but honestly Im too focused on all the mean shit you say. you cannot educate anyone while putting them down. that said, how would you feel if it was one of your businesses burnt to the ground?

Brittani Bethmann

cest...maybe if you weren't such an assholes to people they'd hear what you're saying. but in your quest to prove you're smarter and meaner than everyone else your words are falling on deaf ears. and you're right. not one single looted and low life criminal that destroyed local businesses had any regard for law....and now they won't get their QT back where they spend all their food stamps.

I don't care who did the crime . . . lock them up. How is that bigoted to want to hold people responsible for their actions. Your are the pathetic one feeding into the justification of lawlessness. Did I specify Ferguson residents. So you are ASS U & ME ing. U, your mama, and the donkey you rode in on. When you shit where you eat - THAT IS IGNORANT. Too bad it wasn't something YOU worked for . . . would be an all different tune then, huh.

ACTUALLY NO = JESUS COMMITTED NO CRIMES HE DID NOT DEFILE THE TEMPLE, HE RANT OUT THE MONEY CHANGERS STRIKE #1 THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES FOUND NO FAULT IN HIM WHICH IS WHY PONTIUS PILATE WASHED HIS HANDS OF JESUS' PUNISHMENT BEING FRIENDS TO A PROSTITUTE IS NOT AGAINST THE LAW NOW OR THEN [making you seem even dumber if that were possible] and how is healing people give JESUS A RAP SHEET? YOU CLEARLY ARE A MORON = STOP TYPING, YOU MAKE YOURSELF SEEM LIKE A MENTAL PATIENT

Greg Seltzer

Nearly every one of the people arrested for looting and other such crimes came from outside Ferguson. Grow a brain, preferably one that is not proudly bigoted, accept factual reality and then come talk about this. You calling others ignorant would be hilarious if it was not so pathetic.

Road blocks when nothing illegal was happening-- everyone peaceful, everyone on the sidewalk, still daylight. I declare shenanigans!

Oh Cynthia. Must I cut and paste again? DOES ANYONE STUDY THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION AND THE CONSTITUTION ANYMORE? And if you go back and learn history you might be surprised that the American Revolution was started by an act of looting. That's right!!!! I know, you weren't paying attention in school, and I know reading comprehension is really hard, it's okay, Google it. It was called THE BOSTON TEA PARTY. The looters dumped all the cargo of boat that was private property, owned by a big company called the Dutch East India Company. The people, some of whom became the Founding Fathers, decided they had had enough of the strong armed robbery of the British Empire and they just threw the tea away. Just wasted it. Then they started a revolution and woke people up in the middle of the night, and a bunch of other stuff I will let you learn about yourself. But they really thought Free Speech and Right to Assemble was SO IMPORTANT that they put no restrictions on it. The ENTIRE USA is a Free Speech area. And there is NO SUCH THING AS UNLAWFUL ASSEMBLY. See this is kind of like how conservatives (that's a big word but I think you might have heard it before, if you haven't let me know and I will explain it) have asked for 13 hearings on Benghazi, because they don't think the Justice system was fair? Or how they support Cliven Bundy's strong arm robbery of the Bureau of Land Management, even supporting this thug in pointing loaded weapons (which they call "Second Amendment' rights, but we'll save that for another time. I don't want to confuse too much, you poor thing) at Federal Agents in broad daylight. See how people have different opinions on the rights and freedoms we enjoy in this country? It's just that a lot of people have no actual regard for the law and only want to justify their belief in "Manifest Destiny", or "white might is right". Many of them have shows on Fox News! And they can say any stupid thing they want because that is Free Speech. They can even confuse a television station deciding to cancel a Duck Hunting show with Free Speech and not go to jail for being so stupid! You can probably find one at a Chik Fil A and ask them yourself about the whole incident. I hope this helps, but sadly, I think it is probably all way over your head.

Cest Lavie Boheme

Their insurance companies, most likely. That is a seperate issue. I think I tried to explain this to you before, but that is like blaming Cliven Bundy for the couple that joined him in pointing loaded weapons at Federal Agents in broad daylight, assisting him in continuing his strong arm robbery of the Bureau of Land Management, and then left his ranch and decided to "start the revolution" by committing mass murder-suicide in a Cici's pizza. I hope I didn't use too many big words. Read slow so your mouth doesn't get tired.

Oh my, how many people on this thread are ignorant of the First Amendment and American history. THIS IS SO SAD. I've copied this three times already.

Warren honey, on your timeline posting about Jesus and Michael Brown's funeral, please, read your Bible again. Because Jesus DID have a rap sheet- he busted up a Temple and defied the local authorities and befriended a prostitute and prevented people from stoning her (that was law and order back then) and fed everyone and healed everyone, and even forgave the people that killed him. But I am sure Michael Brown appreciated that you at least watched the funeral and have given so much thought to his killing, especially considering that your little head (and I bet it is little) obviously uses up all the blood your big head needs to think clearly.

Cest Lavie Boheme
Cest Lavie Boheme

Oh Warren, that is so funny! You are hilarious! I am so glad you took the time out of protecting the First Amendment rights of a television show host by eating at a fast food restuarant! Or protesting to get the Justice Department to open a 14th hearing on Benghazi! You know we can't trust due process or the legal system in this country. Just look at how those BLM agents treated Cliven Bundy after he strong armed robbed the US government for -- how many years was it? I'm sure you know, anyone as righteous a Christian as you must-- and then when he had the nerve to point a loaded weapon at him they shot him how many times and killed him? But I don't want to keep you here, because I know you probably have to get to Teabagger meeting to talk about what those Dutch East India looters that started the American Revolution really meant when they said "Freedom of Speech." Or maybe you have a Rapture to prepare for? (One can only hope!!! bye-bye!!! Please go to your all white gated community in the sky and leave the rest of us here in "hell"-- which as I am sure you know, is being forced to share this planet with people like me. :)

It's selective. People that become police seem to have no regard for the Constitution. They believe they ARE the law, and seem to forget that we pay their salaries and they work for us. And that we pay them to enforce the law, not change it when it makes their jobs easier. What happened in Ferguson was a travesty. I don't just mean Brown's murder, I mean the total suspension of First Amendment rights. And have you ever noticed it is the same people screaming "Benghazi" and asking for a 14th hearing on the incident there that keep telling the protestors to "trust the justice system" and "wait for due process"? Or talk about looters but are firm defenders of Cliven Bundy's right to strong arm rob the US government and point loaded weapons at Federal Agents? Really selective.

Cest Lavie Boheme
Cest Lavie Boheme
