Another night engulfed with tear gas and fire as protests over Michael Brown's death by police shooting on August 9th continue to rage on. Reports of looting and police firing tear gas at angry demonstrators continue to emerge, with the St. Louis Police Department even arresting journalists. And as police officials refuse to name the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, tensions only grow.
