State and federal authorities stepped in today to curb the aggressive tactics of local police against demonstrators in Ferguson. Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, who is black and grew up in Ferguson, was tapped to lead the law enforcement effort. "It means a lot to me personally that we break this cycle of violence," he said. Reporters Matt Pearce, who is on the ground in the St. Louis suburb, and Joe Mozingo offer this update on the situation.
