Perspective on Ferguson
Protests escalated again late Monday night as police fired tear gas at protesters who defied police by refusing orders to disperse, instead gathering in groups near the QuikTrip and other Ferguson spots.Meanwhile, in Chicago, Obama's hometown, just another day at the office.
Police fired at least three tear gas volleys near the QuikTrip as emergency vehicles sped to the scene. Police also used tear gas to break up protesters near West Florissant and Northwoods Estates.
Seven people have been killed and at least 29 others wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, police said.
