In this video, police can be seen using tear gas against protesters outside of Ferguson City Hall after windows were smashed and a police car was set on fire. Police officers in full riot gear and carrying shields quickly extinguish the flaming patrol car shortly before a armored personnel carrier arrives and a voice over loudspeaker orders protesters to stop destroying property in the city of Ferguson.
In spite of this, Tuesday November 25, was a much calmer evening in Ferguson Missouri as people protested the death of teenaged Michael Brown. When compared to the chaos protesters unleashed Monday after Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch announced the Grand Jury’s decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson, Tuesday was much calmer.
St. Louis Police Chief, Jon Belmar and Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ronald S. Johnson both agreed Tuesday was a much better night.
The 12 person Grand Jury could have indicted Officer Wilson on any one of four possible charges: Murder in the 1st degree, 2nd degree, voluntary and involuntary 3rd degree. The failure to indict Wilson has brought a lot of criticism from different social strata. Among those who are extremely displeased with the decision include The National Bar Association, and Missouri Senator Jamilah Nasheed. Even Attorney General Eric Holder is promising the nation a more thorough investigation into the evidence and testimony that was presented to the Ferguson Grand Jury members.
