Residents of Ferguson, Missouri who took to the streets Wednesday night to protest the shooting of an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, were met with a police force outfitted in riot gear and armored trucks. Here are some of the shocking photos from the scene, as police used tear gas, smoke grenades, and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.
