Hundreds of protesters committed acts of civil disobedience throughout Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday as they launched another day of demonstrations over the August killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, by a police officer.

Cornel West, a prominent activist, was knocked over during a scuffle at the Ferguson Police Department and was later arrested. West was among the first to be led away, followed by other protesters.
