    Ferguson mayor faces voters for first time since unrest

    FERGUSON, Mo.— More than two years after this St. Louis suburb exploded in angry — and at times violent — protest following the police shooting of Michael Brown, Ferguson’s white mayor is asking the community’s predominantly black residents to give him a third, three-year term in office.

    Mayor James Knowles III, 37, will face voters for the first time since the August 2014 fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer pushed this community into the center of a larger national debate about police relations in African-American communities ...

    Ferguson courts 'in disarray' after police killing: state auditor

    An audit launched in the wake of unrest following the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson found the city's court system "in disarray" and disorganized, according to a report released Wednesday by the Missouri state auditor.

    State Auditor Nicole Galloway was in St. Louis to release details of the audit, which gave Ferguson courts a "poor" rating — the lowest available; the performance was so bad, Galloway said, that her office will conduct a follow-up review later this year ...

    It is amazing to be here, in Ferguson. I had no idea it was actually, apart of St. Louis, Missouri. I actually just happened upon the very street and saw signs that said, Ferguson. I took a pic of a convenience store and later, realized it was the very store in this ordeal!

    I was actually looking for the historic restaurant, SWEETIE PIE, founded by Robbie, and low and behold!!! it's on the same street as the Ferguson convenience store!-- and just a few streets down!
