Figured it was time to make a thread where all reports of the Ferguson unrest could be compiled from all states. So far there have been protests in NYC, Pittsburgh, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, DC, Oakland, Chicago and the list is growing by the hour. Please post all videos, audio, articles and scanner feeds here. Please identify the location of the news you are reporting on.

From Boston...

Add Detroit to the list...

Quote:Ferguson protesters shut down I-75 highway in Detroit
In a city with its own history of racial tensions, Detroit saw several protests across the city Tuesday as angry and anxious voices called for justice in the shooting death of a teenager in Ferguson, Mo. Outraged over the grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, protesters gathered in half a dozen spots in Detroit throughout the day, with one group shutting down the northbound I-75 highway for a few minutes during rush-hour traffic.

My wife was working the overnight shift in the ER at Stroger Hospital in Chicago's near west side last night. Armed security was beefed up. Turned out to be a slow night. Relatively speaking, Chicago protests have been uneventful. My wife is back at Stroger tonight too.

St Louis is kinda quiet on the scanner land right now. Boston however seems to have their hands full though.

Not much left to loot in St. Louis in the area where this is focused. Boston has all those stores that haven't been emptied yet.

Quote:1,400 people protesting Ferguson decision march through Boston to highway
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABoznOgRG-c
BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) --Roughly 1,400 people were marching through the streets of Boston toward the southeastern expressway.

The protesters, marching in solidarity against a Missouri grand jury's decision to not charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown, stood near the South Bay House of Correction around the Massachusetts Avenue Connector, shouting "Let them out," and "Whose streets? Our streets!"

Approximately a dozen police cars were escorting the marchers. Boston Police tweeted that drivers in the area should expect delays and shut intersections due to "peaceful demonstrators."

"We are aware of the possibility that they may try to walk onto a major state roadway to disrupt transportation," according to a statement from state police. "Troopers and Boston officers have established a line on the Mass. Ave. Connector that would prevent protesters from entering Route 93."

Listening to the Boston scanner I can tell that they are extremely overwhelmed but are amazingly handling it very well despite being moved around by a VERY large and rowdy crowd. You can hear the noise in the background of the officers transmissions. It should be noted though that the officers are giving them every opportunity to assemble and only seem to want to keep traffic moving on the major roads by directing their movement.

Hopefully things don't go south for them, I don't think they are ready for a night of "Ferguson style violence".

Seriously though, how long can they let these mass gatherings take place on public roads and such before it's considered disturbing the peace or SOMETHING.

As long as the 1A allows them to.

As evidenced by the Boston Marathon bombing, the police can bring the city to a stand still if they wanted.
