FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) - Some were jailed, but not due to any violence or looting so far on Monday.  But, you could feel the tension in the air as protestors literally got right in the face of police.

For the second day in a row here, it began as a peaceful demonstration. But, there is clear disagreement, even among demonstrators, about the rioting and looting that happened Sunday night.

Some protesters are demanding for Ferguson police to identify the officer and charge him with murder. One of them will be met.  The identity of the officer who shot Michael Brown will be released Tuesday, a move police say is because of the law, not the crowd.

The protests came with an edge, demonstrators stood toe to  toe with police in riot gear for some time. Most of the crowd simply left around midday, but some refused despite efforts of other protestors. At least eight people were arrested in the area, a number police hope isn't' the tip of a violent iceberg.

There were some 300 police officers from departments all over the area here last night, and we're told to expect a similar presence as night falls on Monday.

The protests aren't over. Demonstrators plan to be in Clayton, in front of the prosecutors officer, Tuesday morning.


    • The truth

      The “New Century Foundation” studies Federal crime reports, and found significant differences in crime ratio between races, verified by the FBI’s NCVS, National Crime Victimization Survey, and The Department of Justice’s UCR, Uniform Crime Reports, FBI Communication’s Division, 304-625-4995.

      They state emphatically that the Judicial System is not biased against minorities.

      Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

      Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

      Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.

      The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.

      Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

      Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

      Blacks are seven times more likely to go to prison, Hispanics three times, and the reason is clear, because from 1980 to 2003 the US incarceration rate has tripled….

        Where are the statistics for the countless number of blacks that have been murdered at the hands of white men? Of course your statistics would be made to fit your agenda. Dominance earns you privileges
        Because of white privilege, you’ll never have to inform your children of the harsh realities of systemic racism.
        Because of white privilege, you’ll never know what it’s like to have the following statistic looming over your head.
        You can wear and act however you’d like without being labeled a thug, low life, gangster, etc.
        White privilege allows you to speak on any particular subject without being the sole representative for your entire race.
        White privilege means no one questions why you got that really great job; it’s assumed you were just highly qualified.
        White privilege means not having to worry about your hair, skin color, or cultural accessories as the reason you didn’t get a job.
        Having white privilege means people will never label you a terrorist.
        White privilege means not being affected by negative stereotypes that have been perpetuated and ingrained so much into American society that people believe them to be fact.
        White privilege means you never have to explain why cultural appropriation is a bad thing.
        White privilege means not having to worry about being stopped and frisked.
        If you benefit from white privilege, you’ll never be told to “get over slavery.”

        Wrong answer, comrade. The reality is just the opposite of what you describe. You liberals have tarred every American with the alleged crime of lynching; it is the reason you liberals claim that Americans aren’t entitled to groups to represent our interests. The truth is that in the hundred years after the Civil War, 3,446 blacks were lynched, most of them for serious crimes. Blacks thugs kill this many whites ever two years, and for no other reason than that the victims are white.

        It is also the case, as has already been pointed out, that blacks commit violent crimes at a much higher rate than whites. I live in an all-white county and we don’t have to lock our doors. In multicultural areas, burglar bars over the burglar bars aren’t enough.

        We Americans will take you liberals seriously when you move your OWN families to ghettos or barrios, and send your OWN children to gang-infested schools where English is no longer spoken. Until then, I reserve the right of EVERY American to live the way you liberals do.

        If you want Americans to take you liberals seriously, you will need to put your money where your loud mouths are at.

      I cant help but wonder: when are the police just going to open up the machine guns on these…….people. I guess whenever Obama says (jigga) BOO!

    • Cit Riverview

      They’re being deleted by the woman whom happens to be black at Fox 2. First name is Vera, give them a call and complain. But it will fall on deaf ears.

  • Towtruck

    Number one its Monday lol Way to go fox 2 news… Protesters meet with police in riot gear; more demonstrations Tuesday Sooo… These are the people who you get your facts from .. they dont even know the date let alone what lead up to the shooting.

    • JJ

      “Protesters meet with police in riot gear” and “more demonstrations Tuesday” are two different headlines hence the punctuation mark.

  • SiskOfThugroes

    To kneegrows, “demonstratons” are a chance to beat up whitey, steal some malt liquor, and get a new flat screen TV…..what animals.

    The thug got what he deserved, just like Trayvon.

    It’s an election years so the Socialist Semite democrat media will use this to stir up the slaves on the Democrap Plantation.

  • Ed Pope

    Protests planned. That’s the definition of we can riot, loot, assault and steal since a black youth was wronged.

  • derfallbright

    It would be helpful if people actually waited for the facts to be published before forming opinions and looting stores.

    The police may be totally at fault or it may be a case of there was a struggle for the officers gun. However apparently the officer was not wounded and the unarmed youth was shot while running away………things like this are always difficult to get the facts straight when people act based on ‘assumptions’ rather than facts.

    • LeslieJ

      I agree – again the facts have yet to be determined. I also feel that the protestor’s actions have rendered their concerns not credible. Any excuse to act like thugs to some people..

  • Working White Man

    Blacks are their own worst enemy. Their looting and rioting cause the businesses to pull up stakes. Not to mention the shoplifting.

  • Sunshine

    I have the perfect solution! I think we should catch all of them in a net from a helicopter, pull them up in the air and fly them straight to Iraq (no need to give them weapons since they already have their own), throw boxes of food out of the a helicopter daily so they can loot through it. The way to live as if they are in a war zone…put them in a war zone!

  • Jay in DC

    So by ‘demonstrations’ they mean more uncontrolled looting and feral subhuman behavior? Got it…

  • Working White Man

    It’s funny how Tiger Woods is half black and half white yet he is black. Obama is half white and half black and therefore he is black. George Zimmerman is mostly Hispanic yet he was portrayed as a “white Hispanic” by CNN.

  • DanielShays

    “The protests aren’t over. ”

    Translation: not every 15 year old in Ferguson has managed to steal an IPhone yet.

  • Mommabear

    Peaceful demonstrations are one thing but rioting and hostile movements are not par for the course. Tensions are high but this is still not an excuse for those to rob the innocent. This is not Rodney King we have come a lot farther since then. We must as a nation not allow this to bring out the primal fear and create more destruction. This is a good opportunity to try and stop police power abuses but acting like animals will only fuel the fire to support the need for police presence. So if the demonstrations continue I hope they remain peaceful and not get out of hand again.

    • Ace Baily

      animals do not loot, burn destroy property as was done sunday night, your reference to Rodney King, over 60 people died from the outbreak there, millions of dollars in damage by looters, vandals etc. while this has not reached that level, the fact remains that what occurred sunday night cannot be used as a valid response to what occurred sat afternoon.

  • TxSon

    Releasing the officer’s name just puts him and his family in danger. The mob wants vengeance, not justice. Unless the officer is removed under a protective order, they should maintain his privacy until charges are brought.

  • ron m

    Let’s give 48 hour visas to about a half dozen of those ISIS fighters. They’d have the problem in Ferguson cleared up and cleaned out with time to spare. There wouldn’t be another riot there for quite awhile. Might be messy, but effective.

  • BOStinks2

    I am so sick of this racist country; law enforcers cannot do a thing but watch the carnage brought on by all the idiotic democrats that voted in these a$$&0/3$

  • Arty

    I don’t see any white looters. There needs to the a Civil Rights investigation into the barriers preventing whites from entering the looting workforce.

  • Cathy

    I can’t believe the media is calling these protests. This is nothing but out and out criminals doing what they do best and getting away with it. They are only using this as an excuse to steal

  • Matthew Dunnyveg

    What these savages are demonstrating for is recognition of their right to kill any white person who incurs the displeasure of blacks. In the eyes of blacks, whites have NO right to defend themselves against black depredations. And guess who side the liberals are on?

    Liberalism is a war against the American people.
