BBC News - African-American police officer: Ferguson 'heart wrenching'
Heard part of this on the radio while driving home from work this morning.The killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown led to days of protests in the town of Ferguson, Missouri, and amplified a rift between the town's African-American residents and the police in the region. But what about police officers who are also black?
The BBC's Aleem Maqbool spoke with a black female police officer who works in the St Louis area.
She discussed her take on the controversy in Ferguson and the realities of race on the force. Out of consideration for her job, she asked not to be identified.
Thought it might be an interesting discussion starter.
