Scenes from Ferguson – One Year After Michael Brown

The Daily Mail reports that at least 12 people were arrested in Ferguson on Monday night amid pitched battles between protesters and police.  A cat and mouse game developed over the course of the night as police in riot gear staged sporadic raids on the group of 1,500 people on West Florissant Avenue in the suburb of St Louis in Missouri.  Officers rushed groups of protesters and pepper sprayed them before snatching suspects and handcuffing them.  Protesters threw bottles of water and screamed: ‘F*** the police’ as tensions threatened to boil over for a second night.
