Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has announced a state of emergency and implemented a midnight to 5AM curfew as riots continue in St. Louis. The riots have gotten more and more violent every day, as peaceful protests over the fatal police shooting of unarmed 18 year-old Michael Brown quickly turn to chaos.
Darren Wilson, the man who killed Brown, has been pictured for the first time. Wilson was initially praised for his “extraordinary effort in the line of duty” but is now on paid administrative leave as an investigation into the shooting continues. Governor Nixon slammed the looting by protestors as “unacceptable”.
