Riots Break Out In Downtown Ferguson

Rioters filled the streets of downtown Ferguson, Mo., Monday night, Nov. 24-25, after a St. Louis County Grand Jury returned a no-bill decision, electing to not indict police office Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9, 2014 shooting death of Michael Brown.


People came out in massive numbers looting, riding on top of cars, and setting buildings on fire along W. Florissant Road. Many of the fires were left to burn due to the ensuing chaos. Authorities attempted to blockade the streets to prevent further destruction. Over a mile of traffic stretched three lanes wide, and driving out of the bumper-to-bumper gridlock was nearly impossible. 

See what the local media is saying about the recent events in Ferguson, Mo., and the St. Louis area:

Timeline Blog: 25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

With the recent anniversary of the falling of the Berlin Wall, Timeline staffers took a moment to blog on the significance and impact that day played in history. That day signified the end of an era of depression and injustice in Germany. Not only did it close the time of the Cold War, but it marked a bright journey for peace.
