Law enforcement officers watch on during a protest on West Florissant Avenue in Ferguson, Missouri on August 18, 2014National Guard troops withdrew Thursday from a US town gripped by nearly two weeks of protests over the fatal police shooting of a black teenager, as new details emerged about the white officer who pulled the trigger. Demonstrations in the Missouri town of Ferguson cooled late Wednesday after Attorney General Eric Holder met the parents of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old student shot dead on August 9, igniting protests that frequently turned violent and stirred racial tensions. State troopers and then the National Guard were sent in to improve security, and by Wednesday night, following the Holder visit, tensions on the streets of Ferguson appeared to be easing, with police arresting only six people -- compared to 47 on Tuesday. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said the National Guard, deployed on Monday, were no longer needed.
