A day later, Ferguson police, under pressure to disclose Wilson's name, also revealed that Brown was suspected of stealing cigars from a local store before his deadly encounter with Wilson. That announcement was met with disbelief and anger by several residents, who said police were trying to smear Brown's name to justify his shooting.

"They're not only more likely to be stopped by police and subjected to some kind of abuse, but it also happens repeatedly, and this is something we don't see in the white community," Weitzer said.

One factor that breeds distrust is racial disparity between police and the communities they serve, experts say. Ferguson is nearly 70 percent black, while the police department is more than 90 percent white.

But things escalated again Aug. 15, after Ferguson police released Wilson's name along with video they said showed Brown robbing a store shortly before he was killed. Brown's family condemned the revelation.

Brown's death is the latest illustration of deep divisions between minorities and police that have simmered for generations. Concern about the events playing out in Ferguson has coursed all the way up to the White House.

Weitzer described several different forms of police behavior that breed distrust, particularly among black and Latino males. That included unwarranted stops of individuals on the street by police, such as New York police's highly criticized "stop and frisk" tactic, he said.

Holder bringing personal perspective to Ferguson

Brown was shot multiple times by Wilson on Aug. 9. Police have said little about the encounter, except that it involved a scuffle in which Wilson was injured and Brown was shot. Witnesses say Brown had his hands in the air as the officer fired multiple rounds.

Many communities still mistrust police

The depth of this distrust becomes obvious in polling. While the unrest was occurring in Missouri, almost two thirds of blacks 65 percent surveyed by the Pew Research Center said police went too far in their response to the Ferguson protests, while one third of whites agreed and nearly another third said the police response has been about right. The Pew survey was conducted Aug. 14 17.

"This is a critical step in restoring trust between law enforcement and the community, not just in Ferguson, but beyond," Holder said. "It is the most potent symbol of racial domination and subjection. It is also the most painful."

Without directly referencing the video revelation, Holder said he was troubled by "the selective release of sensitive information" surrounding Brown's case, and said his agency would preserve the integrity of its investigation, "no matter how others pursue their own separate inquiries."

And the streets of Ferguson exploded anew.

"In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement," the president said.
