Calm largely holds in Missouri after grand jury opens shooting investigation

By Scott Malone and Carey Gillam

FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) – Small crowds staged largely peaceful protests late on Wednesday over the fatal shooting of a black teenager by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, the calmest night since riots erupted over the racially charged killing.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder met the parents of 18-year-old Michael Brown and promised his department would hold a thorough investigation into a case that has reignited a debate over the justice system’s treatment of African Americans.

Officer in fatal Missouri shooting finds pockets of support

By Scott Malone and Carey Gillam

FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) – On the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, a community wracked by racial unrest, police officer Darren Wilson is vilified by protesters for shooting and killing an unarmed black teenager.

Away from the front lines, however, a small but growing band of supporters is starting to speak up for the white policeman, saying he is being unjustly attacked for doing his job.
