Night after night the protests continue in Ferguson over the Michael Brown shooting.
Supporters insist that the protesters are peaceful, but video and first-hand social media reporting tells a different story.
The latest video and tweets cover Friday night’s activities, including a road block and an attack on a young white motorist who told the mob he just “wants to go home.”

A video posted on YouTube shows the attack, starting around the 50-second mark.
Tweeters posted the video clip with a sense of outrage. Some of the responses pointed out that there is no video showing what “caused” the confrontation. Other than a roadblock by a giant angry mob in the middle of the street?
What led up to that guy getting choked (“attacked”) last night in #Ferguson?

@Am3ricaChang3d this clip does not show how the confrontation started. They didn’t have any conflict with anyone else.
