ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Police say changes are apparent in Ferguson, Missouri with businesses opening again and students returning to school. There were no arrests on Monday following the funeral of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teen shot and killed by a white police officer. "We deployed no smoke device, no tear gas, no Mace, no bullet was fired. We didn't have to respond to a single call," said Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Brown's family had asked protesters to take a break Monday to observe a 'day of silence.' In a eulogy for Brown, civil rights activist Al Sharpton called on the black community to end the kind of street violence and looting that cast Ferguson in a negative light. "Michael Brown does not want to be remembered for riots," Sharpton said. "He wants to be remembered as the one that made America deal with how we're going to police in the United States."
