Passions still inflamed but Ferguson starts to calm

0

FERGUSON, United States: The streets of Ferguson were decidedly calmer on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) after two days of nationwide protests against the decision not to prosecute a white policeman who shot dead an unarmed black teenager. Just a few dozen protesters and clergy braved rain and light snow to protest outside the police department in the St Louis suburb, where 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed on August 9. A Missouri grand jury decided Monday not to prosecute Officer Darren Wilson, who fired the fatal shots—a move that inspired coast-to-coast anger in the United States as well as a rally across the Atlantic in London.
