Race Anathema: The Ferguson Tragedy
The shooting of Michael Brown occurred on August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, a suburb of St. Louis county, Missouri, United States. Brown, an 18-year-old black man, was fatally shot by Darren Wilson, 28, a white police officer of the Ferguson Police Department. The estranged circumstances of the shooting and the resultant protests and civil unrest received considerable attention in the United States and abroad, and have sparked debate about law enforcement's relationship with African Americans and highhandedness of police and its audacity. The verdict release on Monday exempted Darren Wilson of all the charges which further aggravated rage amongst public.
