The American's with Charlie LeDuff: What now, America?

- Ferguson, Missouri. Black town. White cops. It's the geographic center of America but this could be Anyplace, USA.

There are two versions about the death of an unarmed teenager at the hands of a white police officer.

One version goes, that the cop assassinated a man with his hands in the air. The other version goes that the teen attacked the cop.

Whatever happened in Ferguson, it shows us one thing. Something's wrong in America.

The streets in Ferguson are calming now. The Attorney General of the United States has arrived. The media will soon get distracted with the next catastrophe, and Ferguson will go on.

There will be a trial probably. Will it be enough?

Charlie's in Ferguson asking these questions. Play the video in the video player above to watch his report.
