On Monday night, a grand jury determined no charges should be laid against a white police officer who shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

It touched off a night of rioting in the St. Louis suburb, as well as protests across the U.S. Officials said 61 people were arrested and about a dozen buildings in Ferguson were set on fire.
