(Ferguson, MO) -- Protests are remaining peaceful tonight in Ferguson, Missouri. Hundreds of people took to the streets again carrying signs and raising their hands. Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson walked among the protesters. Earlier today, Governor Jay Nixon announced Johnson and the highway patrol would oversee security in the St. Louis suburb where last weekend, a black unarmed teen was fatally shot by a police officer. Nixon also called for the name of the officer involved in the shooting to be released as soon as it was safe to do so.
