Poll: America sharply divided over Missouri police shooting story image

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new Pew Research poll finds that America is sharply divided over the police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, in Ferguson, Missouri.

The results offer stark and contrasting perspectives of race in America.

Of the African-Americans polled, 80 percent said Brown's shooting raises racial issues, while only 40 percent of whites felt the same.

National Correspondent Kristine Frazao got a perspective from a pair of veteran police officers about what it's like to have the tables turned when they are the ones being profiled.
