One thing about twitter I'm confused about it that despite there being many tweets per minute about ferguson it hasn't shown up once on the top trending list.
An overwhelming group of SWAT forces in riot gear has descended on protesters who gathered once again in Ferguson, Missouri, on Wednesday. After nightfall, police deployed tear gas against the crowd, warning the protest was “no longer peaceful.”
“This is no longer a peaceful assembly. Go home or be subject to arrest,” police warned through the loudspeaker, shortly before shooting tear gas at the protesters. Prior to that officers were telling people to stay away from the vans.
Police were also shooting rubber bullets while smoke grenades and tear gas canisters were falling into the crowd and surrounding neighborhood. Meanwhile, some of the protesters reportedly threw rocks and bottles at the police.

Can anyone give me an update on what is happening as of now?
Thanks in advance.
STL County Police Chief Belmar: "We've done everything we can to demonstrate a remarkable amount of restraint."
I think you mean "Shortest Straw" and not eye of the beholder.

I've got to leave this freak show and try to sleep. Have this annoying Metallica song in my head though:
Freedom of choice is made for you my friend
Freedom of speech is words that they will bend
Freedom no longer frees you
Doesn't matter what you see
Or into it, what you read
You can do it your own way
If it's done just how I say"
--Eye of the Beholder (great tune - just, ugh)
