More US Troops Deployed as fresh riots erupt in ferguson
As darkness fell, in a scene that appeared significantly more controlled than Monday night, dozens of protesters chanted 'No justice, no peace!' near the police station in suburban Ferguson before officers swiftly moved in to detain at least two people who defied orders to clear the road. About a mile away, camouflaged Guardsmen toting assault rifles quietly surrounded businesses damaged on Monday by protesters angry over the decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The killing in Ferguson, a predominantly black city with a white-dominated power structure, underscored the occasionally tense nature of U.S. race relations and sometimes strained ties between African-American communities and the police. Racially charged protests that erupted after Monday's grand jury decision were more intense than unrest that broke out in the immediate aftemath of the shooting itself.
