FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – Marches and protests continued in Ferguson until late Saturday afternoon.  Many people made their final stop at the Ferguson Police Department to tell police officers from a number of different communities what's on their minds.

They filled the street in front of the department. Cops lined up and for the most part remained silent as protestors shouted and screamed in their faces. Some of those one way conversations by protestors were loaded with profanities.  Some people went after the media verbally.

Amber Jones brought her young daughter to take part, "It's been unequal balance for years our ancestors fought for it you know I keep talking to people it's not about white it's not about black it's about good and evil."

Cameron Whitten says her traveled from Portland, Oregon to join the march, "I know this is something that affects communities nationwide whether it's in large cities or the suburbs there is so much that is happening in terms of racial profiling.  There is so much that is happening when it comes to police using force when it comes to people suffering  mental health issue."
