    Major protests erupted in Ferguson late Monday when a grand jury found white police officer Darren Wilson not guilty in the death of unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown, who he fatally shot in August.

    Brown’s shooting triggered massive protests against police brutality in Ferguson and around the country, and was followed by violent clashes between protesters and police officers in Ferguson in August, leading Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to declare a state of emergency, while the FAA implemented a no-fly zone.
