Ferguson: Race and Justice in the U.S.

Fault Lines returns to Ferguson to investigate how and why black communities feel targeted by law enforcement and if those sworn to protect operate with impunity.



Sebastian Walker for Al Jazeera America

In the weeks following the Michael Brown shooting, the militarized police response to demonstrations by local black communities made national headlines. 

But the anger that initially poured out onto the streets was fueled by decades of feeling marginalized and targeted by law enforcement for simply being African-American. 

Fault Lines travels back to Ferguson to investigate why the relationship between the police and local black communities is broken—and if those sworn to protect operate with impunity.
