  1. Ferguson Protests Peacefully With State Troopers

    Authorities seem to have turned a corner in violence-plagued Ferguson, Missouri, last night.

Johnson and his state troopers to take control from local police, and Johnson quickly extended his hand to the community, signaling a new “partnership” for peace, without gas masks and surplus military gear.
