FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - A tripling of the number of National Guard troops may have helped prevent a second night of violence in Ferguson, Missouri last night.

Just after Monday night's announcement that a grand jury would not indict a white police officer in the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old, Ferguson was thrown into chaos, with businesses looted and burned to the ground and vehicles set on fire.

Police say last night's protest was far less destructive. They say 44 people were arrested.
