  The Ferguson Police Department has suspended a spokesperson after he referred to the Michael Brown memorial as "a pile of trash."

Police forcibly dispersed dozens of protesters in Ferguson early Wednesday morning after hours of  confrontation and the smashing of a window at the Beauty Town shop. Tensions had been running high since Tuesday morning when a memorial for Michael Brown burned down close to where he was killed.

A native of a small northeast Missouri town who died in Afghanistan will be forever remembered in his hometown.

Thomas joined the Army after graduating from La Plata High in 2000. He was on his second tour of duty with the 10th Mountain Division when he was killed during an ambush a decade ago.
