With All Eyes on Ferguson Police and Protesters Proceed With Caution

A shooting in Ferguson on Wednesday that left two local police officers injured has fueled tensions already running high in the city since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in August.
While Wednesday's attack on the police raised questions about the security situation in the city, strategies employed by both protesters and police Thursday night kept violence from escalating in front of the Ferguson Police Department. The police department has been a key gathering point for months with protesters returning to the spot in early March after the Justice Department issued a scathing report documenting racism in the Ferguson Police Department and court system.
