Demonstrators took to the streets of Ferguson again on Wednesday, a month after Michael Brown's death, and some were arrested by police when they attempted to block a highway, reports St. Louis Public Radio.

The protesters are demanding a new prosecutor for the investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown. Many have questioned the objectivity of the current county prosecutor currently on the case, Bob McCullough, because his father, a police officer, was killed by a black man on the line of duty.
