FERGUSON, Mo. — Police were present again on the streets of Ferguson, Mo., Saturday morning after the Missouri State Highway Patrol reportedly ordered officers from St. Louis County to ‘stand down’ as looters attacked businesses overnight.

According to one peaceful protester, several protesters and business owners literally put their bodies in between the looters and the different businesses. The protester feels they were forced to do so after several police officers got into their cars and drove away while the looting was underway.

Meanwhile, owners of some businesses stood guard of their property with guns in hand.
