    My drive down West Florissant

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     aphidlip drove 20 miles from his hometown to Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday to see it for himself. "There are much worse areas in St. Louis. I was a little scared driving into the area," he said. "But when I got there and drove through (in the daylight), it was much like any other area of St. Louis. It looks much worse at night from ground level."
