The prodromal stage

The prodromal stage is defined as the warning or pre-crisis stage.   The DOJ identified a number of issues or concerns that were present in  Ferguson leading up to the death of Michael Brown.

  • Should the police chief and city’s elected leadership have recognized these issues or concerns in advance of the riots?
