Quick Trip located at 9420 W Florissant Ave, Ferguson, MO gets looted on August 10, 2014 by people angry over the shooting of Michael Brown. Police had two blockades set up several hundred feet up the street away in both directions, but did not intervene. Other stores along the same street were looted, police did not protect those stores either. Later, the Quicktrip would be set on fire.
There were several hundred police officers from nearly ever municipality in the St.Louis area, and from surrounding areas (I even saw St. Charles police vehicles) Easily 400+. The media is understating it when they say only 150-200 officers were present. They filled an entire Target parking lot with their vehicles and command center.
