Ferguson Curfew Plan Doesn’t Work Well

The first night of a state-imposed curfew in Ferguson, Missouri, ended with tear gas and seven arrests, after police dressed in riot gear used armored vehicles to disperse defiant protesters who refused to leave a St. Louis suburb where a black, unarmed teen had been shot by a white police officer a week earlier.

By daybreak Sunday, there was a renewed push for calm. Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has asked federal authorities to conduct another autopsy on Michael Brown, at the request of Brown’s family.

The DOJ is also intensifying its own investigation into the matter, sending some 40 FBI agents into the neighborhood to gather information.

ABC’s Jim Ryan is on the ground in Ferguson reporting.
