Judge denies ACLU motion for an order to stop police tactics


ST. LOUIS A federal judge Monday night denied a motion by the American Civil Liberties Union for a temporary restraining order to stop police from requiring people to keep moving on sidewalks and thoroughfares in Ferguson unless they're gathered in a designated protest area.

The ACLU suit said that large numbers of demonstrators had taken to the streets and sidewalks to express their opinions "about ...the relationship between police and the community, the frequency with which police officers shoot unarmed black men and the militarization of local police forces."

The suit by the ACLU was filed Monday against St. Louis County, Highway Patrol Superintendent Ronald Replogle and five individual unnamed police officers. The ACLU says that the practice orders "people who are violating no law ... to refrain from gathering or standing for more than five seconds on public sidewalks."

The suit also said that the measure places "restrictions on the ability of the media to witness and report on unfolding events."

Authorities preparing for another night of protests in Ferguson


Authorities in charge of security in Ferguson are preparing for another night of protests.

"We will not allow vandals, criminal elements to impact the safety and security of this community," Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ronald S. Johnson said during a brief press conference Monday afternoon. "We will not allow those elements disrupt, impact, the soul of this community."

Johnson introduced Missouri National Guard Brig. Gen. Gregory Mason, who will oversee the Missouri National Guard's efforts in the area. They were called in by the governor early Monday morning after another night of protests that turned violent.

Mason spoke briefly before a police chaplain said a short prayer at the microphones.

Pres. Obama announces that AG Holder will travel to Ferguson Wednesday where he will hold meetings



President Obama said Monday that Attorney General Eric Holder will travel to Ferguson, Mo. on Wednesday.

Holder will meet with federal agents conducting an investigation into the death of an unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed by a police officer Aug. 9.

"Let's seek to heal rather than wound each other," Obama said, in his second set of remarks on the situation in the past five days.

Obama flew back to Washington late Sunday night from Martha's Vineyard, where he is midway through a two-week vacation. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon deployed the national guard to Ferguson early Monday after chaos erupted there Sunday night. A barrage of tear gas, smoke canisters and rubber bullets were deployed on protesters and police said protesters threw Molotov cocktails at and fired on police.
