Protests broke out again in Ferguson,  Missouri  after a makeshift memorial to a black teenager killed by a white police officer was destroyed by fire.

Tensions also soared at a heated city council meeting Tuesday night before about 200 protesters filled the streets.

A newspaper photographer says the demonstrators threw rocks and bricks at police.

The window of a beauty shop also was smashed.  At least three people were arrested.

The streets of Ferguson had been peaceful over the past few weeks, following several nights of violent protests over the police shooting death of Micheal Brown.

Police say the fire at the teen’s memorial may have been sparked by a candle.

    Sure the cops might not have set the fire, but isn’t it best we loot the nearest dollar store, shoot a cop, and burn the city to the ground just in case? Is there anything stupider than black people in large groups?

    The whole world is watching, and I don’t know who set the fire, but congratulations imbeciles, on setting your people back a thousand years.
