Yeah, there have been articles about a revolutionary group from Chicago coming in to try to spark violent revolution. I did a little research about them and posted it here:
ATS post on RCP
At least some of them are by many accounts a very hardcore wanting violent revolution. They are not the local protesters, and the local protesters don't want them there. Some of the local protesters said the revolutionaries from Chicago were the ones with the molotov cocktails Wednesday night.
Fox news just said again while I was typing this that some of the people there after curfew tonight told people they were ready to die tonight. Then Fox said that there were reports these people opened fire on the police after that. They don't seem to know more than that either yet.

I wish someone would shut the media clowns up.
They're either lying or completely ignorant.
In in all honesty though, I think big media corporations only hire people with an IQ equal to room temperature.
Highly skeptical of police insistence that wasn't tear gas. It burns and i wasn't even hit. #Ferguson
We're now told that tear gas was used at the end. What a mess. #ferguson vine.co...
State Senator Jamilah Nasheed told CNN that Chief Jackson must step down after inciting the violence of Friday night. Nasheed also connected Chief Jackson to St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch, who said Nixon replacing Chief Belmar in command was a “disgrace.” Amazingly, McCulloch said this even when the world was celebrating a night of peace on the streets in Ferguson.
The prosecutor responsible for prosecuting the man who shot Michael Brown dead appears to be complicit in attempt to undermine community policing in Ferguson. McCulloch should be removed from the case, as Nasheed and County Executive Charlie Dooley have requested, and replaced with a special prosecutor.
"What we're doing now is not who we are," Johnson said amid shouts from community members during the press conference.
Johnson noted there would be no trucks or tear gas used to enforce the curfew. He acknowledged that tear gas had been used against protesters early Saturday morning, but said he did not order officers to take that action.

What happened to the press conference? Supposed to have been in 20 minutes?
Also CNN is confirming from a police MHP lieutenant that it was both smoke and tear gas that was used. So, police confirm.
