Poll: 62% of White St. Louisans Think Michael Brown Shooting Was Justified

A new poll released today quantifies the racial tensions surrounding Ferguson, Mo., with some not-so-surprising findings: 62% of white residents of St. Louis believe that the shooting of Michael Brown at the hands of a police officer was justified, while 65% of African-American residents did not. The poll, released by the Remington Research Group , asked 604 residents of St. Louis County various questions about the shooting and its fallout, which sparked protests, overwhelming displays of police force, and a nationwide conversation about the relationship between law enforcement and the African-American community.

Is St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch Helping Raise Money for Ofc. Darren Wilson?

In what appears to be a serious conflict of interest, a T-shirt being sold to raise money for officer Darren Wilson, who gunned down unarmed teenager Michael Brown in a Ferguson street last month, appears to be associated with the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney, Robert P. McCulloch; here's the page for the T-shirt: I SUPPORT OFFICER D. WILSON "I SUPPORT OFFICER D. WILSON" is an officer inspired design to show support for officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department in Missouri. Donations from purchases will be divided between a fund set up for Officer Wilson at gofundme.com as well as The BackStoppers Inc. organization which can be visited at backstoppers.org for more information.

Ferguson video shows witness raising hands in air

People wait for reaction from police after they refused to honor the midnight curfew on August 17, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. A new video that shows a witness raising his hands in the air immediately after the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer appears to support previous accounts and could bolster arguments that Michael Brown was surrendering when he was shot, legal experts said Friday.
