FERGUSON, Mo. -- For most of us, October means football season and Halloween. But in Ferguson, Missouri it's becoming known as "Ferguson October" --- four days of civil disobedience sparked by the killing of unarmed Michael Brown.

The on-going protests are taking place in St. Louis, too, by protestors still angry about the police shooting death there of Vonderrit Myers.

Monday crowds gathered for what they claim is the final day of demonstrations, spilling over from the weekend. At least ten people, including professor and author Cornel West, were arrested.

West said that's what he wanted, though, that he didn't come to Ferguson to make a speech, but rather to get arrested, helping draw attention to police shootings nationwide.
