Decision in Ferguson Case Leads the Brown Family to Offer Solutions
A grand jury in Missouri decided on Monday not to indict Darren Wilson, a Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager. Brown’s death has reignited the debate about law enforcement, race and power. The decision has led to riots and protests in multiple cities; people feel that justice was not served. Along with these protests, debates have started about possible ways to stop this from happening again. Michael Brown’s parents have opened the discussion by asking for “a sensible change in police procedures-namely, a move to equip street officers with tiny video cameras that would record interactions with citizens, including criminal suspects.” This is already taking place in a city in California and has seen a “dramatic reduction in use-of-force and complaints against officers.”
The Brown Family is holding a press conference now, tune in to follow the story.
