Tensions High In Ferguson, Missouri After Renewed Clashes With Police
Saturday, August 16
(Ferguson, MO) -- There are more calls for calm today in a St. Louis suburb that's coming off another night of violence and looting. Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says there are better ways for angry protesters to express themselves.
Police in Ferguson say they fired teargas at a crowd gathered near a liquor store, and the Ferguson Market was also looted overnight. That's the store allegedly robbed by 18-year-old Michael Brown not long before he was shot to death by a local police officer a week ago today.
Missouri Attorney General says no one is trying to stop peaceful demonstrations from taking place.
