In August, Senator Blunt urged the Department of Justice to identify available resources to help the local law enforcement agencies pay for their security work in Ferguson.
“Law enforcement agencies from across Missouri have contributed officers and support to help provide security for the residents and businesses in the Ferguson community,” Blunt wrote. “Many of these state and local law enforcement agencies struggle to meet their immediate needs and do not have the resources to respond to the levels of civil unrest that has taken place in Ferguson in recent weeks.
“State and local law enforcement agencies that have responded to the security needs in Ferguson relied on their own budgets,” Blunt continued. “It has come to my attention that Missouri state and local law enforcement agencies may be in need of additional resources due to the unanticipated costs of responding to the unrest in Ferguson.”

According to Senator Roy Blunt at least half a dozen protesters were shot by fellow protesters in Ferguson.
For some reason the mainstream media ignored this information during the riots.
