Calls for peaceful protests in Ferguson are falling on deaf ears. Cars have been lit on fire, rocks are being thrown and police have responded by shooting cannisters of tear gas. Several stores have been looted and now there are buildings on fire. The violence began soon after it was announced a grand jury decided not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
Ferguson, Missouri isn't not the only place where protesters are gathering to express their outrage at a grand jury's decision not to indict a white police officer for killing an unarmed black teenager. Hundreds of people are gathering in downtown New York City.
NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton was splattered with fake blood by a protestor. Another large group of protestors is on the march in Philadelphia. However, there have been no reports of the kind of property damage that's being seen in Ferguson, Missouri, with at least one building set on fire along with a few cars.
