Governor Will Reportedly Remove County Police from Duties in Ferguson

According to Bloomberg News’ Jon Allen, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) will announce Thursday morning that he will replace the St. Louis County Police in Ferguson, MO, after a night of violence, tear gas, and arrested reporters led to widespread condemnation of the militarized police force. Allen got the news from Representative Lacy Clay (D-MO), who represents part of St. Louis; the announcement is not confirmed.
