    Protests move to Clayton, Missouri - Saint Louis County courthouse steps


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Photographer Chris Renteria has been observing and photographing the Ferguson, Missouri, protests since Monday. On Tuesday, he watched as demonstrators peacefully protested at the St. Louis County Court Building in the nearby town of Clayton. “The second-day protest was a lot bigger and a lot more diverse. There were a lot of people there on Tuesday that I didn't see at the first days of the protest,” he said. Daniel also noticed that the police were more relaxed than at the Ferguson protest on Monday. He said police officers were dressed in their uniforms and “having a conversation with the people,” as opposed to the riot gear he saw in Ferguson. Read our full Ferguson coverage here.
