The disorganized close combat involving a group of protestor continues as a result of racially charged protests which once again flared overnight in Ferguson, Missouri.

These are eruptions of fresh anger over the fatal Aug. 9 shooting of an unarmed black teenager by local police.
Tensions have been high since police officer Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown, 18, shortly after noon last Saturday as the late teenager and a friend walked down a street that runs through an apartment complex where Brown's grandmother lives.

Social media sites have added to the national outrage over this shooting, which is being investigated both by the feds for any civil rights violations and by the St. Louis County public safety officials. Facebook page "Handsupdontshoot" has provided a forum where people share photos, videos and commentary on the continuing saga. https://www.facebook.com/handsupdontshootMovement
