Legacy of racism under scrutiny in St Louis

Residents complain of continued racial profiling and segregated neighbourhoods in the Missouri city.

    Complaints of racism by residents of St Louis in the US state of Missouri have come into focus after a fatal police shooting. 

    The National Guard is pulling out of the nearby town of Ferguson, but protesters there are still calling for the police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown, to be arrested and charged.
