It looks like it’s time for some more looting and perhaps some arson in Ferguson, Mo., where a makeshift Michael Brown memorial burned earlier today.

Large group of people in the middle of West Florissant.

@AntonioFrench when some sick fuck thinks it's ok to burn a memorial won't start more rage. They are (dead wrong)

This has been a fragile peace these last few days. After the fire at the #MikeBrown memorial this morning many feared tonight would be bad.

@AntonioFrench What did Beauty Town do to them? #smh

— Switter Beets (@paperyleaf) September 24, 2014

@AntonioFrench Why beauty town? I'm confused as to what the message is supposed to be.

— Anthony Spinali (@A_Spinali) September 24, 2014

Serious question about Ferguson. What the hell did Beauty Town do to anyone?
