Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.

Clueless is pretty much that really good AU fanfic you read where you’re like “I wish I could watch this” except! you CAN!
I think Amy Heckerling’s script makes a lot of smart, apt changes in modernizing Emma. The film impressively captures the spirit of Austen’s intricate story in ~90 minutes.
LFDB, also known as “Looking for Discussion Buddy,” is a Tumblr dedicated to putting writers in touch with discussion partners (what we call “readers”).
Many writers find themselves in a spot where they want or need to speak to another person about their current project. Some writers don’t have anyone to fill this void for them, and others have people—but those people just aren’t all that interested in the project at hand.
As a writer, I have found it not only helpful to have a discussion partner, but have one who is genuinely interested in the story that I am writing. Thus: LFDB—a place where writers can not just find discussion buddies, but find ones that are interested and invested in the writer’s project!
If you are a writer and would like to make a submission to find a discussion buddy/reader, please visit our Writers Submission page!
If you are a reader who would like to find a writer currently working on a project and in need of someone to chat with, get help from, and bounce ideas off of, check out or Readers Submissions page!

Illustrated love story told in verse about the importance of looking beyond someone’s (poorly dressed) exterior and into their heart.
The goal: $5,000
The reason: to help fund and offset the book marketing, paying the creatives involved, and printing costs.
What is it?
The Dark Lord and the Seamstress is an unconventional love story told in verse. The finished product will be a picture book with a full colour cover, filled with beautiful black and white drawings illustrating a fun, romantic poem.
The book is suitable for kids, though it does have some dark humour.
Original interior art, by Jennifer Vendrig
This book has been in development for twelve years! But now illustrator Jennifer Vendrig and I are ready to share the story – and her gorgeous artwork – with you and your family!
The Dark Lord, a brooding demon from the depths, is tired of being the butt of all the devils’ jokes for his outdated wardrobe. When he invites the world’s most famous Seamstress to Hell to make him some new threads, he doesn’t expect to be struck by love at first sight. Now he has to figure out how to convince her to marry him and stay and Hell forever… and the Seamstress has to try to figure out how to convince him that it’s a terrible idea!
It’s the perfect gift to bring into your geeky family, and is a lovely story about looking for the good heart beneath the (style-deficient) surface for people of all ages.
Query and manuscript critiques, personal serenades, a ringtone recorded by Ed The Sock, custom etched glassware, poems printed on scarves, commissioned art, and a ‘tea’ party personally hosted by yours truly! Check out the perks list for everything!
