FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) – Police and politicians in the St. Louis suburb where a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black teenager have vowed to reach across the divide in a community in search of answers.
Wednesday saw more confrontations, and two reporters said they were detained by police before being released. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported about 10 people had been arrested, including St. Louis Alderman Antonio French, who has chronicled the protests on social media.
Residents have complained about what they called a heavy-handed police presence, while County Police Chief Jon Belmar says his officers have shown restraint.
