This is what the streets of Ferguson looked like on Monday night

Chaos erupted on the streets of Ferguson on Monday night, despite the presence of National Guard troops on the streets.

There were reports of heavy gunfire, tear gas, molotov cocktails and smoke bombs. The scene in Ferguson once night falls is a familiar one: smoke-filled streets, police in riot gear and gas masks, protesters with scarves and makeshift gas masks covering their faces:
