If They Gunned Me Down

Hosted by

One of the first images we saw of Michael Brown, the unarmed teen shot in Ferguson, shows him as an intimidating figure. Shot from below, it shows Brown making a symbol with his fingers that some claim was a “gang sign.” Others say it’s a peace sign. The controversy has led to a hashtag that asks: If I were shot by cops tomorrow, what photo would the media use? We talk about that and other stories developing online with the hosts of the TLDR podcast.
