Ferguson, 11 days

             6383c4aa-a3bc-4c08-ae6e-d0dc3aa9803e-460x276Are we sitting on a powder keg?

But the catalyst for the clashes was the shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old. And, as the immediate reaction inevitably subsides after these exhausting days, so may they be reignited if justice is not seen to be done, protesters and community figures warn. “I’m not confident about this ending any time soon,” says Thompson, the pastor urging calm. “If this officer is not arrested, doesn’t have to go through the due process of law, then we’re going to see demonstrations on an unimaginable scale. We are sitting on a powder keg.”
