Hours after the grand jury’s decision in the Michael Brown case was made public, fires erupted in Ferguson Missouri. Several buildings and a police car were fully engulfed in flames by 11 p.m. local time. The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports there were more than 60 arrests, 10 businesses damaged and two people wounded by gunshots overnight. Protesters, many marching peacefully, were disbursed by the police after the violence erupted. “They told the crowd ‘this is no longer a peaceful protest. Move along or you’ll be arrested,” said PBS NewsHour Weekend producer Stephen Fee.
