Ferguson Protesters Chant Names of Cities They Intend to Shut Down, Demand to Be Arrested

Protesters in Ferguson, Mo., blocked traffic and surrounded cars on West Florissant Avenue before moving to the Ferguson Police Department on Saturday night. More protesters gathered in front of the police department than in recent nights, and many appeared eager to get arrested. In this video, a protester shouts his demand to be arrested:

​The protesters continued the game of cat-and-mouse by moving back in front of the department and blocking traffic once again. 

Police led one of the offenders away in handcuffs as the tension rose. 

​Eventually, protesters began to slowly leave the scene of the protest until only a few remained. While protesters were calling for a grand jury to indict police officer Darren Wilson, who is suspected of shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown, many protesters appeared more concerned with getting attention.
