Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson has a global audience

Amnesty International has sent monitors to the scene. Palestinians are tweeting advice on how to cope with tear gas. Tibetan monks have showed up to offer prayers. Russian officials, Iran’s official news agency and China’s state-run media are offering lectures on human rights abuses. What started as a small-town police shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old black man in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo., has quickly become an international incident.
