More news from Ferguson:
Gov. Jay Nixon pledged today to make an "operational shift" in the way the Ferguson protests are being handled by police.St. Louis Post Dispatch
"You will see a different tone," Nixon said.
The governor is at the Christ the King United Church of Christ, 11370 Old Halls Ferry Road, to join members of the St. Louis Metropolitan Clergy Coalition and other civic and faith leaders at a meeting.
Nixon said he will be spelling out his plans later today. He told the crowd that he had talked with President Obama about the Ferguson issue.
McCaskill told reporters that it was her understanding that the St. Louis County Police were going to be pulled out.
Nixon got loud applause from the crowd when he talked about the media. "If people in the newspapers want to cover things and take pictures and stuff," he said. "They ought to do it. It's a free country."
This is necessary to prevent a potential loss of life. This morning I feared that there could be a bloodbath. Now I am more optimistic.
