In the city of Ferguson, nearly everyone is a wanted criminal.
That may seem like hyperbole, but it is a literal fact. In Ferguson -- a city with a population of 21,000 -- 16,000 people have outstanding arrest warrants, meaning that they are currently actively wanted by the police.

What started as a relatively calm protest outside the Ferguson Police Department on Wednesday evening unraveled shortly after midnight when gunshots were fired, hitting two police officers.

More details have emerged today showing how the protests outside the Ferguson police department on Wednesday night suddenly turned violent just as the crowds were starting to wind down.

FLORISSANT, Mo. -- My daughter deserved a treat. After all, she had just sat through hours of adult conversation as the only 6-year-old in the room. Over the past few months, as I’ve reported on the aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown in nearby Ferguson, I’ve covered countless protests and community meetings.
