The Shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has received international attention
For more than a week now, Missouri citizens have gathered in the city to protest the police department, the killing of an unarmed teenager and racism within the community.
These protests have turned violent, with the looting and burning of Ferguson stores, and forceful police intervention including tear gas and the firing of rubber bullets. The name of the officer involved in the killing has been released, today autopsy results showed Brown suffered multiple gunshot wounds, including two to the head, and more information is known every day, but there is still a lot that is not known about the incident that resulted in Michael Brown’s death. And the legal process going forward will be very important to a community that is crying out for justice, now.
