State of Emergency Declared in Ferguson

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon ordered a curfew in the town of Ferguson and declared a state of emergency after violence and looting broke out again overnight in the aftermath of unarmed teenager Michael Brown’s death at the hands of a cop. The curfew will run from midnight to 5 a.m. “This is a test,” Nixon said at a news conference, saying “the eyes of the world” are on Ferguson. At least three businesses were broken into on Friday night and early Saturday morning, despite community activists and protesters who tried to stop them.
