A protester waves a flag during a demonstration outside the police station in Ferguson, Missouri, on November 26, 2014The streets of Ferguson were decidedly calmer after two days of nationwide protests against the decision not to prosecute a white policeman who shot dead an unarmed black teenager. Just a few dozen protesters and clergy braved rain and light snow Wednesday to protest outside the police department in the St Louis suburb, where 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed on August 9. A Missouri grand jury decided Monday not to prosecute Officer Darren Wilson, who fired the fatal shots -- a move that inspired coast-to-coast anger in the United States as well as a rally across the Atlantic in London. After they were rebuffed, extra police and a National Guard Humvee were drafted to protect the building.
