    St. Louis mayor expects more protests this evening:

    St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said at a 6:30 a.m. CST news conference that 21 people were arrested in the city, and 15 of those arrests were for felony offenses such as weapons possession, robbery and burning buildings.

    ABC News reported that the overall arrest total from St. Louis County, which includes Ferguson, was 61.

    “We going to be prepared for this evening as well,” Slay said, adding that police will intervene “much more quickly than we did last night.”

    In St. Louis, 21 windows smashed. Concerning last night’s violence, he said, “I’m more than disappointed, I’m outraged by it.”

    St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said that law enforcement authorities struggled to address both peaceful and law-breaking protesters at the same time.

    “While organized protesters were distracting us, criminals were taking advantage,” he said. On Tuesday evening, he said, if the groups divide “we have resources to handle that.”

    “What we saw last night was the criminals … using the cover of the organized protest,” he said. In Ferguson, “I think resources were overwhelmed … which is why you saw the [National Guard] deploy.”

    Michael Brown’s mother “really had faith that the system would work for her child,” Crump said on the Today Show, adding the was “absolutely shocked” Wilson wasn’t charged with one crime.

    FERGUSON, Missouri — After a night of protests and chaos, the crowds in Ferguson dispersed early Tuesday morning. The smoke, not so much.

    On South Florissant Boulevard, smoke first filled the air when police fired canisters into crowds. The canisters hissed and slithered between the feet of running protesters, then burst with an abrasive gas that felt like equal parts sandpaper and fatigue. Those who had gas masks hurried to put them on. Everyone else fled.

    In the midst of it all, Ashley Bailey rushed onto the sidewalk with a group of other young women. “They’re drawing their guns at him,” she yelled, pointing at a heavily armored police officer, who was pointing an assault rifle at a car. As she watched the car creep backward, Bailey wiped away tears. “It’s the gas,” she said, before disappearing into the crowd.

    The canister smoke gradually cleared, but the air over parts of Ferguson stayed thick with the fumes of burning cars and buildings. Several burned in the neighborhood near the police station, and others were sprinkled throughout the community.

    The starkest devastation, however, was on West Florissant — the street that had been the epicenter of protests in August.

    Paul Fletcher saw it begin.

    Fletcher spent his evening guarding his friend’s Asian restaurant. He told BuzzFeed News that soon after the announcement that Officer Darren Wilson wouldn’t face charges for killing Michael Brown, a crowd descended on the street. Most attention at that point was still focused a couple miles away in downtown Ferguson, and as the crowd arrived people began ransacking businesses. Several burned and Fletcher recalled hearing numerous gunshots — an observation later backed up by other witness at the scene as well as police.

    The crowd never made it inside the restaurant Fletcher was guarding. He said people tried to break through an already-boarded up window, but eventually moved on. When asked if he had weapons with him, he paused then gestured toward the restaurant. “We had a knife.”

    A couple hours later Fletcher was still standing outside, watching the smoke from at least four nearby structure fires spiral upward. It didn’t quite smell like a campfire — there was just too much rubber and paint going up in flames.

    Across the street, Kaye Mershon and Buffi Blanchard sat inside their barber shop, Clip Appeal — which Mershon owns — with several friends, watching cars burn on the late-night news. Clip Appeal weathered the protests in August, but Monday night it wasn’t so lucky; the glass front door was smashed, as was a front window. Blanchard said someone had apparently thrown a Molotov cocktail through the window, and the floor was scuffed and charred. No one in the room seemed particularly surprised by what happened Monday, but then Blanchard paused.

    “I didn’t think,” she added, “that they were going to burn this many businesses to the ground. To a crisp.”

    The Wall Street Journal’s Ben Kesling is reporting that Ferguson fire department have been fighting 25 structural fires tonight.


    As of just after 3:30 a.m. CT, firefighters were dealing with six structural fires, Kesling reported.

    FERGUSON, Missouri — After a night of protests and chaos, the crowds in Ferguson dispersed early Tuesday morning. The smoke, not so much.

    On South Florissant Boulevard, smoke first filled the air when police fired canisters into crowds. The canisters hissed and slithered between the feet of running protesters, then burst with an abrasive gas that felt like equal parts sandpaper and fatigue. Those who had gas masks hurried to put them on. Everyone else fled.

    In the midst of it all, Ashley Bailey rushed onto the sidewalk with a group of other young women. “They’re drawing their guns at him,” she yelled, pointing at a heavily armored police officer, who was pointing an assault rifle at a car. As she watched the car creep backward, Bailey wiped away tears. “It’s the gas,” she said, before disappearing into the crowd.

    The canister smoke gradually cleared, but the air over parts of Ferguson stayed thick with the fumes of burning cars and buildings. Several burned in the neighborhood near the police station, and others were sprinkled throughout the community.

    The starkest devastation, however, was on West Florissant — the street that had been the epicenter of protests in August.

    Paul Fletcher saw it begin.

    Fletcher spent his evening guarding his friend’s Asian restaurant. He told BuzzFeed News that soon after the announcement that Officer Darren Wilson wouldn’t face charges for killing Michael Brown, a crowd descended on the street. Most attention at that point was still focused a couple miles away in downtown Ferguson, and as the crowd arrived people began ransacking businesses. Several burned and Fletcher recalled hearing numerous gunshots — an observation later backed up by other witness at the scene as well as police.

    The crowd never made it inside the restaurant Fletcher was guarding. He said people tried to break through an already-boarded up window, but eventually moved on. When asked if he had weapons with him, he paused then gestured toward the restaurant. “We had a knife.”

    A couple hours later Fletcher was still standing outside, watching the smoke from at least four nearby structure fires spiral upward. It didn’t quite smell like a campfire — there was just too much rubber and paint going up in flames.

    Across the street, Kaye Mershon and Buffi Blanchard sat inside their barber shop, Clip Appeal — which Mershon owns — with several friends, watching cars burn on the late-night news. Clip Appeal weathered the protests in August, but Monday night it wasn’t so lucky; the glass front door was smashed, as was a front window. Blanchard said someone had apparently thrown a Molotov cocktail through the window, and the floor was scuffed and charred. No one in the room seemed particularly surprised by what happened Monday, but then Blanchard paused.

    “I didn’t think,” she added, “that they were going to burn this many businesses to the ground. To a crisp.”

    The Wall Street Journal’s Ben Kesling is reporting that Ferguson fire department have been fighting 25 structural fires tonight.


    As of just after 3:30 a.m. CT, firefighters were dealing with six structural fires, Kesling reported.

    ABC News reported that the overall arrest total from St. Louis County, which includes Ferguson, was 61.

    “We going to be prepared for this evening as well,” Slay said, adding that police will intervene “much more quickly than we did last night.”

    St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said that law enforcement authorities struggled to address both peaceful and law-breaking protesters at the same time.

    FERGUSON, Missouri — After a night of protests and chaos, the crowds in Ferguson dispersed early Tuesday morning. The smoke, not so much.

    On South Florissant Boulevard, smoke first filled the air when police fired canisters into crowds. The canisters hissed and slithered between the feet of running protesters, then burst with an abrasive gas that felt like equal parts sandpaper and fatigue. Those who had gas masks hurried to put them on. Everyone else fled.

    In the midst of it all, Ashley Bailey rushed onto the sidewalk with a group of other young women. “They’re drawing their guns at him,” she yelled, pointing at a heavily armored police officer, who was pointing an assault rifle at a car. As she watched the car creep backward, Bailey wiped away tears. “It’s the gas,” she said, before disappearing into the crowd.

    The canister smoke gradually cleared, but the air over parts of Ferguson stayed thick with the fumes of burning cars and buildings. Several burned in the neighborhood near the police station, and others were sprinkled throughout the community.

    The starkest devastation, however, was on West Florissant — the street that had been the epicenter of protests in August.

    Paul Fletcher saw it begin.

    Fletcher spent his evening guarding his friend’s Asian restaurant. He told BuzzFeed News that soon after the announcement that Officer Darren Wilson wouldn’t face charges for killing Michael Brown, a crowd descended on the street. Most attention at that point was still focused a couple miles away in downtown Ferguson, and as the crowd arrived people began ransacking businesses. Several burned and Fletcher recalled hearing numerous gunshots — an observation later backed up by other witness at the scene as well as police.

    The crowd never made it inside the restaurant Fletcher was guarding. He said people tried to break through an already-boarded up window, but eventually moved on. When asked if he had weapons with him, he paused then gestured toward the restaurant. “We had a knife.”

    A couple hours later Fletcher was still standing outside, watching the smoke from at least four nearby structure fires spiral upward. It didn’t quite smell like a campfire — there was just too much rubber and paint going up in flames.

    Across the street, Kaye Mershon and Buffi Blanchard sat inside their barber shop, Clip Appeal — which Mershon owns — with several friends, watching cars burn on the late-night news. Clip Appeal weathered the protests in August, but Monday night it wasn’t so lucky; the glass front door was smashed, as was a front window. Blanchard said someone had apparently thrown a Molotov cocktail through the window, and the floor was scuffed and charred. No one in the room seemed particularly surprised by what happened Monday, but then Blanchard paused.

    “I didn’t think,” she added, “that they were going to burn this many businesses to the ground. To a crisp.”

    The Wall Street Journal’s Ben Kesling is reporting that Ferguson fire department have been fighting 25 structural fires tonight.


    As of just after 3:30 a.m. CT, firefighters were dealing with six structural fires, Kesling reported.

    “We going to be prepared for this evening as well,” Slay said, adding that police will intervene “much more quickly than we did last night.”

    “While organized protesters were distracting us, criminals were taking advantage,” he said. On Tuesday evening, he said, if the groups divide “we have resources to handle that.”

    “What we saw last night was the criminals … using the cover of the organized protest,” he said. In Ferguson, “I think resources were overwhelmed … which is why you saw the [National Guard] deploy.”

    The latest from BuzzFeed News’ Jim Dalrymple II in Ferguson:

    FERGUSON, Missouri — After a night of protests and chaos, the crowds in Ferguson dispersed early Tuesday morning. The smoke, not so much.

    On South Florissant Boulevard, smoke first filled the air when police fired canisters into crowds. The canisters hissed and slithered between the feet of running protesters, then burst with an abrasive gas that felt like equal parts sandpaper and fatigue. Those who had gas masks hurried to put them on. Everyone else fled.

    In the midst of it all, Ashley Bailey rushed onto the sidewalk with a group of other young women. “They’re drawing their guns at him,” she yelled, pointing at a heavily armored police officer, who was pointing an assault rifle at a car. As she watched the car creep backward, Bailey wiped away tears. “It’s the gas,” she said, before disappearing into the crowd.

    The canister smoke gradually cleared, but the air over parts of Ferguson stayed thick with the fumes of burning cars and buildings. Several burned in the neighborhood near the police station, and others were sprinkled throughout the community.

    The starkest devastation, however, was on West Florissant — the street that had been the epicenter of protests in August.

    Paul Fletcher saw it begin.

    Fletcher spent his evening guarding his friend’s Asian restaurant. He told BuzzFeed News that soon after the announcement that Officer Darren Wilson wouldn’t face charges for killing Michael Brown, a crowd descended on the street. Most attention at that point was still focused a couple miles away in downtown Ferguson, and as the crowd arrived people began ransacking businesses. Several burned and Fletcher recalled hearing numerous gunshots — an observation later backed up by other witness at the scene as well as police.

    The crowd never made it inside the restaurant Fletcher was guarding. He said people tried to break through an already-boarded up window, but eventually moved on. When asked if he had weapons with him, he paused then gestured toward the restaurant. “We had a knife.”

    A couple hours later Fletcher was still standing outside, watching the smoke from at least four nearby structure fires spiral upward. It didn’t quite smell like a campfire — there was just too much rubber and paint going up in flames.

    Across the street, Kaye Mershon and Buffi Blanchard sat inside their barber shop, Clip Appeal — which Mershon owns — with several friends, watching cars burn on the late-night news. Clip Appeal weathered the protests in August, but Monday night it wasn’t so lucky; the glass front door was smashed, as was a front window. Blanchard said someone had apparently thrown a Molotov cocktail through the window, and the floor was scuffed and charred. No one in the room seemed particularly surprised by what happened Monday, but then Blanchard paused.

    “I didn’t think,” she added, “that they were going to burn this many businesses to the ground. To a crisp.”

    “While organized protesters were distracting us, criminals were taking advantage,” he said. On Tuesday evening, he said, if the groups divide “we have resources to handle that.”

    “What we saw last night was the criminals … using the cover of the organized protest,” he said. In Ferguson, “I think resources were overwhelmed … which is why you saw the [National Guard] deploy.”

    FERGUSON, Missouri — After a night of protests and chaos, the crowds in Ferguson dispersed early Tuesday morning. The smoke, not so much.

    On South Florissant Boulevard, smoke first filled the air when police fired canisters into crowds. The canisters hissed and slithered between the feet of running protesters, then burst with an abrasive gas that felt like equal parts sandpaper and fatigue. Those who had gas masks hurried to put them on. Everyone else fled.

    In the midst of it all, Ashley Bailey rushed onto the sidewalk with a group of other young women. “They’re drawing their guns at him,” she yelled, pointing at a heavily armored police officer, who was pointing an assault rifle at a car. As she watched the car creep backward, Bailey wiped away tears. “It’s the gas,” she said, before disappearing into the crowd.

    The canister smoke gradually cleared, but the air over parts of Ferguson stayed thick with the fumes of burning cars and buildings. Several burned in the neighborhood near the police station, and others were sprinkled throughout the community.

    The starkest devastation, however, was on West Florissant — the street that had been the epicenter of protests in August.

    Paul Fletcher saw it begin.

    Fletcher spent his evening guarding his friend’s Asian restaurant. He told BuzzFeed News that soon after the announcement that Officer Darren Wilson wouldn’t face charges for killing Michael Brown, a crowd descended on the street. Most attention at that point was still focused a couple miles away in downtown Ferguson, and as the crowd arrived people began ransacking businesses. Several burned and Fletcher recalled hearing numerous gunshots — an observation later backed up by other witness at the scene as well as police.

    The crowd never made it inside the restaurant Fletcher was guarding. He said people tried to break through an already-boarded up window, but eventually moved on. When asked if he had weapons with him, he paused then gestured toward the restaurant. “We had a knife.”

    A couple hours later Fletcher was still standing outside, watching the smoke from at least four nearby structure fires spiral upward. It didn’t quite smell like a campfire — there was just too much rubber and paint going up in flames.

    Across the street, Kaye Mershon and Buffi Blanchard sat inside their barber shop, Clip Appeal — which Mershon owns — with several friends, watching cars burn on the late-night news. Clip Appeal weathered the protests in August, but Monday night it wasn’t so lucky; the glass front door was smashed, as was a front window. Blanchard said someone had apparently thrown a Molotov cocktail through the window, and the floor was scuffed and charred. No one in the room seemed particularly surprised by what happened Monday, but then Blanchard paused.

    “I didn’t think,” she added, “that they were going to burn this many businesses to the ground. To a crisp.”

    The Wall Street Journal’s Ben Kesling is reporting that Ferguson fire department have been fighting 25 structural fires tonight.


    As of just after 3:30 a.m. CT, firefighters were dealing with six structural fires, Kesling reported.

    St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said at a 6:30 a.m. CST news conference that 21 people were arrested in the city, and 15 of those arrests were for felony offenses such as weapons possession, robbery and burning buildings.

    ABC News reported that the overall arrest total from St. Louis County, which includes Ferguson, was 61.
