(Business Insider) The governor of Missouri declared a state of emergency and a curfew in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson on Saturday afternoon, in the wake of riots that ensued after a police officer shot an unarmed black 18-year-old.
“We will not allow a handful of looters to endanger the rest of this community,” Gov. Jay Nixon said in a press conference Saturday broadcast live on MSNBC.
The curfew will run from midnight until 5 a.m., Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson said at the press conference. Johnson — an African-American native of Ferguson who was brought in to help quell the riots on Thursday — tried to strike a positive note on Thursday.
"We will survive this, and we will make a change," he said.
