Businesses destroyed after fires and looting in Ferguson

A St. Louis County Sergeant confirms to CNN officials are searching for a missing AR-15 assault rifle believed to have been taken from a police car.

Federal officials are investigating whether arsonists targeted Michael Brown's father's church, setting it on fire.
It's just one of at least a dozen buildings torched as protests have spiraled out of control in the community.

Residents and business owners are now dealing with a shell of their town with buildings torched, some of them unrecognizable.

    "I wish everyone would just calm down a little.

    When I say "everyone" , I mean The Press and the TV crews and all my colleagues and all the people who advise my colleagues.

    I think we need to calm down some.

    You know, THIS IS A TERRIFIC COUNTRY.

    But sometimes we go a little crazy. Maybe that's part of our greatness, part of our freedom. But if we don't watch out and calm down, it all may spin out of control .

    The world is getting more and more complicated. Politicians have to explain things to you in simpler terms so that they can get their little oversimplified explanations on the Evening News.

    And eventually, instead of even trying to explain they give up and start slinging mud at each other.

    And it's all to keep you excited, Keep You Watching...

    It's staged and it's fake and it doesn't mean anything."
