Ferguson Missouri Shooting Overview

We are using the ongoing situation in Ferguson Missouri as a vignette in which to analyze the difference between subjectivity (opinions, emotions) and objectivity (facts) it is important to break down the major aspects of this situation: 

Alleged Crime --->  Police Response ---> Police Encounter --->

Shooting Incident ---> Public Response to Shooting / Protest --->

Police Response to Public Response / Riot --->

Post Incident Investigation (Local / State / Federal) --->

Public Response to Grand Jury --->

Discussion Considerations

  • Role of Leaders 
    • Family
    • Community
    • Local / State / Federal
  • Role of Media 
    • Reporting News or Making News
    • Subjective Reporting versus Objective Reporting
    • Impact of Social Media
  • What Would You Do Differently?
