More than a week after the killing of Michael Brown, the chaos isn’t dying down in Ferguson, Missouri. On Sunday night, hours before the start of a midnight curfew, St. Louis County police said protesters hurled Molotov cocktails toward officers. Police responded by setting up a “skirmish line” and firing tear gas into a crowd of hundreds of demonstrators marching toward a police command post. Two more reporters said they were briefly arrested, and some reported hearing gunshots.
