Counter shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown with facts, not rage

Michael Brown, 18, was unarmed when a police officer fatally shot him around noon on Saturday in Ferguson, a close-in suburb of St. Louis. Some witnesses said he had his hands in the air. His death demands a complete investigation, not only into what prompted the shooting but into the culture of the Ferguson Police Department and its relationship with its community.
