Ferguson Unrest Leads To East St. Louis Curfew

(East St. Louis, IL) -- There won't be many late nights for teenagers in East St. Louis during the Thanksgiving break. City leaders have put a curfew in place for everyone 17 and under. They have to be inside between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. each day, unless they're at work or participating in a school or church event that has adult supervision. The idea is to make sure the teens are safe from harm during any potential fallout from the Ferguson grand jury decision. East St. Louis is less than 15 miles from Ferguson.
