August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
