The August 9 shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri ignited protests that have become increasingly intense for over a week. Mostly minority protesters have clashed with authorities in escalating nightly demonstrations, which have led Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to declare a state of emergency and triggered the deployment of the National Guard to the St. Louis suburb.

VICE News headed to Ferguson to capture the struggle between police and protesters in what has become a flashpoint for race in America.

  1. Amerikka. Where people honestly try and defend someone who killed a kid who was unarmed and not within arms reach of him. He was not a drugs, he had THC in his body. Weed doesn't make you a killer. Being black and large doesn't make you a killer. Robbing a gas station doesn't make you a killer and even if it did the Aurora Shooting killer was captured ALIVE so let's think of that before we talk about police treating everyone the same. Police WANT to kill black people and half of you fuckers defending them want the same thing. Making racist jokes to your friends but too much of a coward to say anything to a black man's face because you know that he'd beat you to death.

    Killing police is the only thing you can do to defend yourself if you're black in this country. Putting your hands up, laying down, surrendering, being in their custody. Nothing will save you from pigs except yourself. If you're black and you live in the US don't go anywhere unarmed. It's perfectly legal no matter what anyone wants to tell you, and if feel like your life is in danger when dealing with an officer who seems like he is ready to kill you. Simply take his life before he takes yours because doing anything else is proven not to work.

    It may sound extremely harsh but i'm telling you to defend yourself against terriorists and that's exactly what police are they do not help communities unless it's a mostly white area or it involves shooting a minority. Defend yourself. If a police officer can get away with shooting unarmed kids in the street because "they feared for their lives" then you shooting at an officer who is raising his voice at you and showing signs of getting ready to shoot and kill you.

  2. Prejudice…


    All but branches indicating a bad SPIRITUAL root system WITHIN…

    "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man." (Mr 7:21-23)

    The ONLY solution is the transformation of a human being by God..

    "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." (Ga 2:20)

    Come to Christ, LIVE in and unto Christ!

    The world will not be fixed by people…
    "Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this PRESENT EVIL WORLD, according to the will of God and our Father:" (Ga 1:4)

    Why live for nothing, when you can live forever?

  3. It almost seems staged…
    Why would the journalist hide behind concrete walls? 7.62×56 or the .223 high velocity fragmentation rounds could easily penetrate and atleast destroy camera equipment. A lot of pyrotechnics and flashbangs but no Real gunfire. what is this? hype?

  4. White people are made from out of caves there cavemen there the real animals they should be thrown in cages , they should be enslaved, they should be shot with tear gas, they should be the ones arrestes not the ones arresting if you dont believe me when i say whites are cavemen look it up theres documented proof. BLACK POWER. BLACK PANTHERS. MALCOM X. MARTIN LUTHER KING. WE NEED U
