Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.
my friend John just wrote the best post about catcalling possibly ever.
August 18th 2014 in Atlanta Georgia a peaceful Rally for the Justice of murdered unarmed teen Michael Brown took place. Michael Brown was shot 6 times in the street by a cop in Ferguson Missouri. As the rain poured down a group of a few thousand marched the streets shouting “HANDS UP, DONT SHOOT!” Its time for a change in the country. Change is long overdue, its terribly sad that this STILL happens but were united and it WILL stop! Rest in Peace Michael Brown. JUSTICE FOR ALL!
