Less than two months ago, the death of Michael Brown sparked outrage throughout the nation, before more information seemingly made the incident less clearly a case of random police violence. The dispute between the police and the community led to weeks of unrest in the St. Louis, Missouri suburb and to another very tense national discussion about race.
Now, in the space of less than 24 hours, two different police officers have taken fire near ground zero of the Michael Brown shooting.
First, early Saturday morning a police officer on patrol in Ferguson was shot in the arm. The officer was patrolling the community when he saw someone behind a local business.
