Since the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in St. Louis, MO on August 9th, the accounts of police and eyewitnesses have differed greatly: witnesses say he was shot as he ran away from an officer who was trying to stop or arrest him, but the police insist that he assaulted an officer and reached for his gun. The account of @TheePharoah, who identifies himself as a St. Louis-based rapper tweeted: I JUST SAW SOMEONE DIE OMFG. The name of the shooter, Darren Wilson, was released this morning; Wilson has been on paid leave since Brown’s death.
