The St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri is still roiling more than a week after an unarmed black man was shot dead by a white police officer. Some blame militaristic police for ratcheting up tensions. Peaceful protests turned violent. There's been looting. Now the National Guard is coming. Let's take some time during the Sound of Ideas to discuss the issues Ferguson raises.
