The current situation in Ferguson, MO is as follows; a young man was reportedly shot and killed by a police officer after surrendering when approached. Due to this action many protests as well as acts of aggression including riots, looting, and vandalism, began in Ferguson. Michael Brown, the young man who was killed, along with his friend Dorian were walking in the street when stopped by a police officer telling them to get off of the street. After an understanding reply, the officer proceeded to cut the young men away from the road. With the car being with-in arms reach, the officer began to strangle Michael Brown and warned him to stop resisting while simultaneously firing his weapon. As Dorian and Michael ran away, the Ferguson police officer continued in his pursuit of Michael ultimately ending in his death. In the midst of this tragedy the correct steps must be taken in order to move forward, from collecting pieces of evidence at the crime scene, to trying those who are responsible. The actions in this case need to be just throughout the whole process, or else the current protests and riots will become more violent and seem like the right course of action. One underlying theme is clearly racism. Ferguson and Michael Brown isn’t the only case where a young black man has been killed by a police officer for what appears to be no reason. Jonathan Ferrell, 24, was killed after asking a homeowner to call for help after a serious car wreck. The officer involved was placed on paid leave, as if no disciplinary action would take place. As of now some of the chaos in Ferguson has died down, hopefully everything subsides sooner than later.
