Tyson Manker, a U.S. Marine who served in Iraq, greets another protester in Ferguson, Mo., Aug. 14, 2014. "I have a problem with weapons of war now being used at home on peaceful protesters," said Manker. Jay Nixon, the state's governor, moved Thursday to restore calm in Ferguson after the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer had led to several nights of unrest, saying that the Missouri State Highway Patrol would direct the team providing security and crowd control during protests.
