What's Happening in Ferguson, MO

The killing of unarmed, 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri by a police officer and the subsequent protests it sparked have hit the community, and then the country, and now the world, very hard. Most of the early coverage of the shooting and the mournful, outraged reaction happened on twitter -- you can find riveting and important in formation being updated in real time at #Ferguson.
