Ferguson, MO., went into flames on Monday after the grand jury announced its verdict on a recent police shooting that killed one black person. Countrywide protests followed after the released judgment said that the jury had not found any evidence against the white police officer, Darrel Wilson. �There are some Americans who agree with the decision and there are some Americans who are deeply disappointed and even angry,� said president Obama in a press conference on Monday. He pleaded that the disappointed have to remain calm. Governor Jay Nixon, who had arrived Ferguson hours before the announcement, said that his team has taken appropriate measures to control any violent protests. As many as 54 people have been arrested in Ferguson after the announcement and Tuesday night seemed relative calmer than that of Monday�s.
