    Four years after Michael Brown was shot, the neighborhood where he was killed still feels left behind

    Washington Post

    FERGUSON, Mo. — When Starbucks opened here in 2016, politicians celebrated, predicting that the coffee chain would revitalize a city marred by violent protests over Michael Brown's killing two years earlier. Other corporations jumped in with multimillion-dollar commitments to help rebuild the majority-black town that became a global symbol of racial and economic inequality; but four years after the unrest, nearly all of the new development is concentrated in the more prosperous — and whiter — parts of town, bypassing the predominantly black southeast neighborhood where Brown was fatally shot by a police officer while walking to his grandmother's home.

    ...And for the first time in a long time, one of the chief caretakers of that system, Robert McCulloch, the man who let Brown’s killer go free, will face a serious reform-minded challenger. That challenger is Wesley Bell.

    ...Robert McCulloch, the lead prosecutor of St. Louis County for nearly three decades and the man many blame for failing to get justice after an unarmed black teenager was shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, was unseated Tuesday night by reformist challenger Wesley Bell in the county’s prosecuting attorney race. With 89 percent of votes counted, Bell had 55 percent of the vote to McCulloch’s 45, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

    ...Bush had hoped to replicate the success of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who endorsed her and pulled off a similar upset when she defeated New York Rep. Joe Crowley in June. But Lacy Clay’s longstanding ties to the district were too much to overcome.
