Michael Brown shooting: 'Stark racial divide' in American views

Over a week after teenager Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, events there remain fluid and tense.

In response, the Pew Research Center conducted a poll at the weekend to gauge how Americans view what has happened in Ferguson.

The poll's results shows an America divided along racial and political lines over the complex issues at play in the shooting's aftermath.
