Title Rebellion in Ferguson Over Murder of Michael Brown
 
Subtitle
 
Description WeCopwatch is reporting for Indybay from Ferguson, Missouri, where on August 9 a Ferguson police officer shot down and murdered 18-year-old local resident Michael Brown in broad daylight in front of numerous witnesses. In a town that is 67% African American, and constantly the subject of racist police stops and citations by a Ferguson police department made of up 53 officers, of whom only three are African American, the community was outraged by the murder. After days of protests and violent racist attacks by police against demonstrators, the focus has shifted to the police cover-up of the murder. After previously refusing to release the incident report on the shooting and the name of the shooting officer, Ferguson police have finally released his name, Darren Williams, but instead of releasing their report on the shooting, they ramped up a smear campaign against Mike Brown.
