Reactions to Brown’s killing reveal many Americans see black life as a lower priority than white life, the law enforcement profession, or private property.

Room for debate: Ferguson — Collateral injustice

On Nov. 24, a St. Louis County grand jury in Ferguson, Mo., declared it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown.
