US: Ferguson erupts in rage after police kill Michael Brown
On August 9, an unarmed teenager and college-bound student, Michael Brown, was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Beginning with an order from the police officer to Brown to get on the sidewalk, shortly thereafter a shot was fired.

As his body lay on the pavement, the community of Ferguson exploded in righteous indignation and anger at the naked violence of the police.
