Looting in Ferguson, Mo.: 'Y'all want to buy something?'
By Matt Pearce contact the reporter

In Ferguson, Mo., early Saturday morning, Times reporter Matt Pearce reported live at the scene of looting and protests.

The unrest came after a day of mainly peaceful protests over the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by a police officer a week ago. That calm came after days of tense confrontations between protesters and the police. Trouble began again early Saturday after a crowd gathered in the area near a mini-mart that authorities allege Brown had robbed shortly before he was killed.

Protests in the area soon deteriorated into looting. [Note: The first tweet below was sent at 1:32 a.m. local time. Missouri is two hours ahead of the West Coast.]

Whatever the mood was when I was here three hours ago, jubilant, relaxed, is scattered and chaotic now.

I'm guessing the hug-a-thon wasn't the answer.  Watching the completely out-of-control 'town hall' earlier, I wasn't overly impressed with the new guy in charge who was getting pretty close to "Why can't we all just get along".
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

You mean Kumbaya doesn't work?
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.

Well, it has its downsides when chaos is king.
