Reporter for St. Louis Public Radio, Rachel Lippmann, has been following the events in Ferguson after the shooting death of Micheal Brown for the year since it happened. Protests emerged yesterday around the anniversary of that event - where an unarmed black teen was killed by a police officer. A state of emergency has been called and protests are expected to linger on throughout the week.      

 We spoke with Lippmann about what the atmosphere is currently, ie: why clergy were arrested on Monday - and how things have changed in Ferguson and the surrounding area over the past year:
