It was a quiet Sunday night in Ferguson, Missouri, a stark contrast to the same high two weeks earlier. Protests over the shooting death of unarmed black teen, 18-year-old Michael Brown, by a police officer, were peaceful. Authorities say no use of force was needed by officers. "It would appear peace is being restored in Ferguson," says Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol. "Through 11 p.m. again tonight, we deployed no smoke devices, no tear gas, and no mace; and again tonight, no police officer fired a single bullet." Brown is to be laid to rest today. His father has asked for calm ahead of the funeral.
