The state's governor along with leaders from Missouri's law enforcement agencies made it clear that they will not tolerate a repeat of the violence and looting that erupted in the days and weeks that followed Brown's death three months ago.

Governor Jay Nixon said he's willing to call the National Guard to Ferguson if necessary. The state is also preparing itself with new riot gear to fight back against protesters who defy the law.
