Police Order Protesters Off Ferguson Streets
Officers have ordered protesters off Ferguson streets after what had been several hours of largely peaceful demonstrations.
Protesters had gathered outside the Ferguson Police Department on Tuesday for a second night following a grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
Despite several arrests, there was a far different feel than the previous night, which saw arson, looting and rioting.
Several hours after nightfall, a group of people broke off from the crowd and marched down from the police department. A police car was torched outside city hall. Police quickly used a fire extinguisher to douse the flames released tear gas.
Officers soon took to loudspeakers to tell protesters to leave the streets or face arrest.
