Riots In Ferguson, MO After Grand Jury Decision

Finally, months after the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown, the grand jury reached a decision last night on whether or not to indict officer Darren Wilson, who killed Brown. The decision was made not to indict Wilson, which then incited riots all over Ferguson, MO.

Several fires were set, including police cars. At least 10 buildings were set on fire. In one instance, a firetruck was prevented from distinguishing a fire because of gunfire in the area. Around 150 gunshots were reported to have been fired by protesters. The police responded by using pepper spray and tear gas to control the bulk of the crowd, which quickly dispersed. However, this was not the end of the violence. Looters damaged local businesses and in the end, over 80 arrests were made in the St Louis area.

Dog Attack Costs Detroit Man His Hands And Feet

A Detroit man is in critical condition after a pack of dogs mauled him on the east side Thursday evening.

Police said the attack was so vicious that the man lost his hands and feet, the Free Press reports.

The man, age 40 to 50, was attacked after at least five pit bulls escaped a house on the 4500 block of Pennsylvania. When police arrived, the man was naked and pinned on his back as the dogs mauled him.

Police shot at the dogs and killed one of them. The rest of the dogs were lured into their home.

Police returned this morning and found about 13 dogs, including puppies. All appeared to be pit bulls, police said.

The mauling remains under investigation, and the owner has been questioned.

The victim is being treated at Detroit Receiving Hospital.
