suicide you're up to date with all of our top stories this hour that's it for myself and the team here in london coming up next on al-jazeera it's time for rewind. in one light we cannot see everything with our own. without testimony we would know very little witness documentaries that open your eyes. hello and welcome again to rewind on melissa purana since we launched al-jazeera english more than a decade ago we have tackled many difficult and sensitive stories across the world
today we rewind into august 2014 when the frontline series traveled to ferguson missouri and the midst of street on rest following the police shooting of a young african-american michael brown was just 18 and a mom when he was shot by a white police officer after being stopped while walking with a friend and hours after the shooting the residents of this mostly black area of service and took to the streets to protest against the killing and to demand that the police officer should be named the police responded by flooding the area with armed officers and riot gear and military style equipment by the time night fell the streets of ferguson looked like a war zone it was the beginning of more than a week of street protests which divided public opinion in the united states and within days sebastian walker and his fault lines crew were en ferguson to see for themselves the nature of both the uprising and the police response from force lines
and august 2014 has ferguson city under siege. fergusson missouri. the spot for what would become davies street protests was the killing of an unarmed african-american teenager. in the days that followed the police responded to the demonstrations with massive force. such as it was because of course is the message you little kill if necessary. an autopsy would show the brown was shot at least 6 times twice in the head. he was the 4th black man to be killed in the united states by police in the span of a month the street protests and police tactics brought ferguson into the national and international spotlight things quickly spiral reports of gunshots fired from the crowd
a state of emergency was declared the national guard was deployed and the u.s. attorney general launched a federal investigation into the killing faultlines was in ferguson to witness how michael brown's killing sparked something bigger exposing tensions that had been bubbling beneath the surface for years always the. i felt i felt. that. this is the area ferguson's residents are calling ground 0 the epicenter of the protests. when we arrived it was the 4th day in a row that people were marching on the street just a few blocks from where michael brown was shot. and. the police had still not released the name of the officer involved and people were angry the.
mistrust of the police here runs deep while more than 60 percent of ferguson's resident. so black 50 out of its $53.00 police officers a white. african-americans account for nearly 90 percent of police stops such as under arrest. the demonstrators made it clear they would remain peaceful and requested the police to do the same. route of. the fight over but for no reason that we could see the mood shifted very quickly. so the police are now bringing out these heavy armored vehicles you can see it's a lengthy truck this is something that's designed for basically conflict zones to
fight in places like iraq and afghanistan this is an extraordinary display of force to be honest i mean these guys on to the team there's more riot police arriving behind them this is a crowd of just a few 100 people and it's being completely peaceful the news our guys on top of these vehicles are actually training a high powered weapon examination the crowd. the police refused to explain why they needed such heavy weaponry. why they're bringing this equipment in fact some of you know want to bring in ahmed pickles. it wasn't hard to see why the crown would see the police presence as anything other than inflammatory. would you like. machine gun. you don't think this.
is peaceful. here has it been like this the last few days like this for years. for years this kind of policing yes this is been like this for years. but the anger over the way peace was handling the situation group. only. the police are saying we're going to leave the area we're going to get right back now from the police line the gas is coming down now. there's more gas coming over here. we're going to get out of here now. daschle firing canisters of gas at us as we're running away. to take. care here.
is about as feeling nothing like her moses was driving down the stretch it was going to be a solid module every time our light you'll see i didn't know how innocent why do you think they started firing gas why they started firing them because they're trying to get us decide to riot all the time they're trying to think cold you know 1st the rights. when the. police are now using in the audio instruments to try to disperse the crowd this is a crowd control you can see the protesters are still in the streets and they're saying the lead not going anywhere. they seems like they're throwing flash bombs now there's the explosions going off
we're not quite sure what the police so far in but keep coming down to we're going to get out of here. in a matter of hours on the streets of ferguson had gone from peaceful protest and calls for justice to scenes out of the conflict and. there's a lot of places box favors the crowd had to stand up to every word of explosions from black crash bang grenades another one got up out. as the military vehicles advanced rubber bullets were fired. at so anyone on the streets including media was in the line of fire. off the days of laundry staying silent missouri's government finally showed up in ferguson promising changes. today i'm announcing that the missouri highway
patrol under the supervision of captain ron johnson who grew up in this area will be directing the team that provides security in ferguson yet governor how many rigs plain and major of the presence that we saw on the streets yesterday i mean that was on personnel carriers about 100 police in military style uniform high powered rifles being trained on the crowd i mean who is in charge of making those decisions and on they're going to be held to account for mistakes that you clearly think have been made i think that those yesterday and i should i do more small kevin johnson i appreciate this and they're very there's a responsibility looking forward meant to a new face for the police commander captain von jones who was born in the community . the scene on thursday was very different from the previous night to take gas and military vehicles this seems to be fewer police and those who was
there the streets with the protesters. the change in approach seems to lift the mood. good that atmosphere was short lived at home. the next morning ferguson's police chief finally announced the name of darren wilson the officer who had killed michael brown but almost in the same breath he also released this video footage. it allegedly showed brown stealing cigars from a convenience store in an unrelated incident his grieving family was incensed. and their behavior here. the motives for releasing the video and its timing were immediately questioned did you know that he was a suspect in a case or did he not and you you say you can sign. safety but it seems like you let the son of a job officer say i'm going to read you a statement him michael brown's families beyond outraged at the devious ways the police chief has chosen to disseminate piecemeal information in
a manner intended to assassinate the character of the sun once the response that we have given you everything that we have now and everything that we can give you so that's from from our police department we have you have all everything we've got there's nothing else like looking at anybody and that's exactly the finding of the release of this video michael brown's family held an impromptu press conference outside the police station in response to something that people try to determine. what the real problem is condemning what they branded as an attempt to criminalize him and justify the officer's actions so whatever that took place there had nothing to do with an individual getting down on his hands and knees raising his hands in the air you saying don't shoot this is the universal call for eyes to render and i can hear my cousins voice right now is that speech saying don't shoot. down at ground 0 later that evening news of the videos released that spread.
people want and weak. but instead of trying to diffuse the tension by minimizing police presence the vehicles were out once again. it didn't take long before things started to happen. soon a small group started smashing store windows ok well this looting starting now you see people i reckon it was like ok ok i get. this guy out of here. but then another group of young men quickly moved in to stop looting why why are you standing there. sousa google there is a group as a group. want to snow.
