A coupon for justice: Ferguson releases the officer's name that shot Michael Brown.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably heard of the events surrounding the Michael Brown shooting.

Brown was an 18-year-old teenager who was gunned down by local law enforcement in the suburbs of Ferguson, Missouri, more than three weeks ago.

The tension in Ferguson is high, and residents are uneasy and suspicious of the police department-- some even calling them rogue cops.

There have been riots and protests, and for fear of the officer's safety, they had refused to release his name, which should have been a part of public record.

The cyber group, Anonymous mistakenly identified another officer as being the shooter, so police officials released the real name of the shooter today.

His name is Darren Wilson, and officer of the force for about six years.
