Tempers hot on the streets of Ferguson

Keep-if the voltage in Ferguson, after the shooting that injured two policemen, while a new manifestation took place on Thursday night.

The resignation of the Chief of police of Ferguson calmed tempers in the city and the two officers were wounded in the early hours of Thursday during a demonstration against racism at the local police station. One of the agents was wounded in the face and the second on the back, but are free from danger.

In the face of growing tension, police reinforcements from St. Louis County, Missouri were called to Ferguson.

A hundred young manifested itself at the end of the day and night, about 50 people gathered in front of the station for a prayer vigil.

In August 2014 an unarmed teenager was shot by agent Darren Wilson Ferguson police, what initiated the civil protests and a national debate over racist motivations on the behaviour of American security forces.

Last week, the Justice Department reported did not have enough evidence to prosecute Darren Wilson, admitting however there are signs that the police of Ferguson and the municipal Justice may have acted on the basis of racist prejudices.
