State of emergency declared in US protest town

Many fear an outbreak of violence if the St Louis County grand jury fails to indict Ferguson city police officer Darren Wilson in the August 9 death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. In an open-ended formal declaration, Governor Jay Nixon said “there is the possibility of expanded unrest” when the grand jury hands down its decision. Nixon also activated the Missouri National Guard to back up local and state police.
