Mike Brown killing and aftermath

A lot of information is coming out of Ferguson and the media is struggling to keep up. Most up to date news is coming from the #ferguson hashtag on Twitter and other sources.

The situation is Ferguson is being documented on Wikipedia, but it's important to cover it here on Localwiki. Wikipedia has standards for its content which try to attain a degree of objectivity and documentation which forces coverage at a broader level. Localwiki has been used to successfully document police action in other cities which Wikipedia wouldn't deem "encyclopedic" but which is nonetheless important to document.
