Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.

Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.

Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.

The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.

The “Best Original Song of Summer in a Movie” I dub to be Boom Clap (from The Fault in our Stars) by Charlie XCX.

I’m indifferent toward the movie itself but this song is one of the bubbliest and most catchy pop songs for this movie (and conversely, this summer).

Most Brutal On-Screen Film Death: Jacob (Into the Storm) and Lucas (Transformers: Age of Extinction) {tie}.

One of the surprisingly creepy ways a character was killed on-screen this summer is poor cameraman Jacob in the disaster film “Into the Storm”, who gets sucked into a tornado that’s been lit aflame by a damaged car dealership lot. Second goes to T.J. Miller’s Lucas in Transformers: Age of Extinction, who gets calcified alive by a bomb from villain Lockdown. Say what you will about Lucas himself, but his death was, just wow. You know what, I’m willing to also give Ratchet from the same film as an honorable mention.
