McCulloch is investigating Brown’s shooting by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. However, protesters and many community members generally have argued that his background makes it impossible for him to objectively run the case. Getting McCulloch to step aside has been one of the primary demands protesters have made in the weeks following Brown’s death.

Monday’s protest was brief; the freeway was only supposed to be shut for four and a half minutes to represent the four and a half hours Michael Brown’s body reportedly lay in the street.

During the two weeks after Brown’s death, numerous protesters also told BuzzFeed they were particularly upset that Brown’s body was left in the street for hours. Many in the community felt that it was disrespectful both for Brown and passersby, and that if Brown had been white the situation would have been handled differently.

Earlier Monday afternoon, it looked as though the freeway blockade wouldn’t happen.

Protesters had discussed shutting down Interstate 270, but told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch they ultimately opted to postpone the event. “Until our demands are met it’s still on the table — some kind of highway action. When we’re ready we’ll tell everyone about it,” organizer Zaki Baruti told the paper Monday.

The call to postpone the protest came from Michael Brown’s family, the Post-Dispatch reported. The fact that some protesters opted to disregard Brown’s family’s request emphasizes the fact that the protests are populated by a diverse group of people who at times have differing views on what should happen.

Police were on the scene as the protesters blocked the freeway Monday, but members of Argus Streaming News said there were no conflicts and the protest remained orderly.
