    Another quieter night in Ferguson, and with less of a military presence as well. Governor Jay Nixon ordered the National Guard to stand down after a
    couple days of more peaceful demonstration in the St. Louis suburb.

    enforcement and Ferguson residents.
    163 people have been arrested since Michael Brown was shot and killed almost
