Holder orders Justice Department to perform additional autopsy on Brown
Despite another night of violent protests in Ferguson, Missouri, where seven people were arrested and one person was critically wounded after a curfew was imposed from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m., Gov. Jay Nixon said "a solid step forward" was made on Sunday.
"I'm really proud of everybody's effort last night, especially from the community," Nixon said on ABC's "This Week." "With thousands of people out there, you know, only seven arrests, the majority of those from outside the area, not a single shot by a police officer. I thought that last night, with the help of the community, a solid step forward was made." By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo News, August 17, 2014
