Two police officers who haven't shot anyone all year.

Ferguson, MO - Last week a white police officer in Ferguson, MO, shot and killed Michael Brown, who was an 18 years old black male. The shooting has ignited demonstrations and riots in the city of Ferguson, as well as other locations across the U.S. The death of Michael Brown is still under investigation by local, state and Federal authorities.

At the time of the Brown shooting, almost 39 million other black Americans were not shot by police of any ethnicity.

The Brown shooting is considered a racially-motivated tragedy by some people, to the point of being murder, while others believe it to be a fully-justified response by the officer on the scene.

While the investigation continues, Federal authorities in Ferguson have made it clear that in general, across the country, the police have not killed most black people. The spokesperson went on to say that overall the police have not killed - by a huge margin - most of the people in the United States.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
