    My #cnnireport story


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ali Rafiq shot this photo in Ferguson on Monday: 'A police officer was standing guard making sure individuals were not congregating in one specific area. He was on the sidewalk facing the large crowd of protesters walking up and down West Florissant. This was the day after the curfew was lifted. One thing mentioned is everyone had to keep moving. I feel this may detract from agitators stirring up trouble. I have no personal connection with Michael Brown. I never met him. My parents are small business owners in Ferguson for the past 22 years so I basically grew up in the area. During the day, there were peaceful protests in the area around the Ferguson fire station/police station which is across from my parents' business.'
