Ferguson, MO - Governor Nixon signed an executive order Aug. 18 ordering the deployment of the National Guard to Ferguson. The order also authorizes the Highway Patrol to close down or restrict access to major city streets. In the wake of the murder of the killing of a young African American man, Mike Brown, by a white cop, Ferguson has seen a wave of protests demanding justice and authorities are moving to step up repression.
