    Title: “Michael Brown’s Autopsy Result’s Won’t Solve Ferguson’s Tragedy”
    Summary: The death of a young male, Michael Brown has been a controversy. In the article “Michael Brown’s Autopsy Results Won’t Solve Ferguson’s Tragedy” many medical examiners have conducted an autopsy of Michael Brown. On Wednesday, a new analysis of the official autopsy report was released. According to the results of the autopsies, it has been indicated that Brown was probably going for the officer’s gun. In addition, some have said that the results did not support the idea that Michael Brown was running away. The people in Ferguson are still concerned with Brown’s death, if the police officer isn’t indicted people in Ferguson would react different and probably protest. The death of Michael Brown has impacted Ferguson in several ways.
