State of Emergency in Missouri - 18 Nov 2014
Missouri's governor declared a state of emergency on Monday and authorized the state's National Guard to support police in case of violence after a grand jury decides whether to indict a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager.
"Our goal here is to keep the peace and allow folks' voices to be heard," Governor Jay Nixon told reporters on a teleconference. "People need to feel safe and to achieve those goals, we need to be prepared."

The order also puts the St. Louis County Police Department, rather than police in Ferguson, Missouri, in charge of policing protests.

Residents of Ferguson, which saw weeks of sometimes violent protests following the Aug. 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, are braced for the possibility of more unrest, particularly if the grand jury decides not to criminally charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

Officials have said the grand jury's decision is likely to come this month.

A man is pictured past a "I Love Ferguson" sign as he walks his dog down a street in Ferguson, Missouri, November 16, 2014. The signs were dreamed up by the city's former mayor, Brian Fletcher, 55, a week after the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown provoked rioting in which businesses were burned out. Sales of "I Love Ferguson" merchandise have become a fund-raising tool intended to help the damaged businesses. REUTERS/Jim Young
