Images and Live Video From Another Night of Protest in Ferguson
After the changes made today, reducing the militarized police presence in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, there seems to be a marked improvement in the atmosphere. Here are some of the images from Twitter of the marches and protests taking place tonight, with live streaming video from Fox2Now (when it becomes available; at present it’s stalled).

Police presence light compared to during yesterday protest. Only seeing cruisers. No riot gear or big vehicles pic.twitter.com/kec3UCBOJy
Cpt. Johnson WALKED in the march. “We're all in this together…we're not in this for fear, to intimidate.” pic.twitter.com/cAaCViwBB1
So we won't see large police presence tonight? *Cpt. Johnson looks around* https://t.co/6cXxWgnLL5

“Thank you so much for coming out here tonight,” woman says to Johnson, almost in tears pic.twitter.com/Q6kS96bCM4
I've been here since Monday afternoon. At no point have officers mixed/mingled/chatted with protesters - until tonight.
Will stop waxing poetic long enough to note sun still up, night is young. But the change in tone on ground right now is stunning #ferguson
