The father of Mike Brown has asked that people call off all protests Monday, the day of his son's funeral.

"I would like for no protesting going on," Michael Brown Sr. said during an interview on Hot 104.1 FM, a hip-hop radio station in St. Louis. "We just want a moment of silence that whole day. Just out of respect for our son."

Brown went on air this morning with the Demetrious Johnson Show, which runs from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Michael Brown's funeral is set for 10 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 25, in a church in St. Louis that can accommodate up to 4,500 people. Three White House officials, Rev. Al Sharpton, and thousands of community members are expected to attend.

Protests and riots, many of which turned violent and led to a number of arrests last week, have taken over Ferguson since Michael Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9.
