"Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the national guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. For this generation, the battle is not for civil rights, but for the right to live."--

I know perfectly well that there are at least two sides to any story, and that this account has been at least somewhat sanitized to support one side. But really, killing an unarmed teenager and leaving him in the street for hours? When will that ever be acceptable behaviour on the part of police?

Don't leave your critical faculties behind, but there is much meat here.

I knew a lot of folks who protested about the murder and the verdict. Many said the police were the agitators. There was a small pocket of people looting but the majority were peaceful protestors angered by the ongoing abuse of power by the cops in their neighborhood. It's a good thing social media exists otherwise people would never believe that cops were shooting rubber bullets, tear gas and other weapons into crowds of unarmed people. Great documentary.

Google "Michael Brown" , read what Wikipedia says , and skip this B.S. account of what
the story really was.
