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.

White People: The Middle East is so barbaric. They’ll cut off a person’s hand just for stealing!

White People when an unarmed black kid is murdered by police in America: Yeah, but he shoplifted some cigarillos, so…

The US Government:
We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
The US Government:
If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
The US Government:
And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
The US Government:
In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
The US Government:
If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
The US Government:
Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
The US Government:
And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
The US Government:
The parent who is working 16 hours a day
