Fault Lines travels to Ferguson, Missouri, to document the reaction to the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer—and the militarized crackdown that followed.
On August 9, 2014, an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown was shot dead by police in the city of Ferguson, Missouri. The killing sparked several days of protests in the community.
Fault Lines goes to Ferguson to witness the demonstrations and the subsequent heavy-handed police reaction—and to ask wider questions about why Michael Brown was shot and why the authorities' response was so disproportionate.
