Last night the protests took a violent turn after the announcement that officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted. While several businesses on West Florissant were literally burned to the ground, a number of restaurants in the thriving district on South Grand also had their windows smashed or were otherwise damaged. There were 21 window smashings on Grand alone, per the St. Louis Police Department's report.
