Tensions were high on November 24, 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri, where thousands gathered near the town's police department to find out if the grand jury would indict officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Michael Brown on Canfield Drive on August 9. Upon hearing that there would be no charges levied against Wilson, the crowd reacted in different ways -- crying, yelling and resolving to reform the justice system. Later, though, some protesters and police faced off in a battle of wills that ended with fires and tear gas. Read our dispatch from Ferguson here.
