    Title: “Ferguson: An American Dilemma”
    Summary- When an individual is said to commit a serious crime, they are taken to court. At court the jury decides whether one is guilty or not. However, there are times in which others may disagree with the decision of the jury. In the article “Ferguson; An American Dilemma” the author John Cassidy indicates the decision made at court regarding Michael Brown’s death and how individuals have taken the decision. Several violent scenes took place on Monday, November 24, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. Some individuals are greatly against the decision made at court. In addition, it is also indicated that the American Dilemma still remains in place. Some African-American individuals feel that the criminal justice system is biased against them. The killing of Michael Brown has reinforced that feeling. It is indicated that if incidents like that keep occurring more scenes like one in Ferguson will keep taking place. Most of the time there are going to be individuals who disagree with the decisions made and there are going to be people who strongly agree with the decision of the jury.
