Since the shooting in Ferguson among the fallout is that many cities and towns in the state do not have many, if any, African-Americans on their police forces. It could be said that in communities where the majority of residents are African-Americans, there generally speaking is mistrust of the police.

There are many reasons for this, with the town or city having few if any black policemen being one, but not the principal one. Rather the mistrust goes much deeper. The jobless rate is high, the educational level is not what it should be and the crime rate is high. The murder rate also is high, African-Americans killing African-Americans for the most part. In general, there is little or no respect for authority.
