I'm 'Ferguson Strong'...Ferguson is a nice place to live, and we will heal, rebuild, and grow from this tragedy!!! I live in Ferguson, and Ferguson will heal, rebuild, and grow, but we can't until all these people go home and stay home. Ferguson was the nerdiest city in St. Louis County until the riot happened!!!

99.9% of Ferguson is perfectly fine. That one block in Ferguson is labeling the whole community. This is all media hype for ratings and votes. Ferguson is a nice place to live...one dumb a*s cocky cop and one innocent young man doesn't define us.

I just wish all these reporters, hooligans, BS politicians, bootleg preachers, and media attention whores would ALL KEEP FERGUSON OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS!!!! Also, 98% of those hooligans did not live in Ferguson... they only reason for being there was for chaos and mayhem!!!!!

I moved to Ferguson July of 2016. I took advantage of lowered property values to buy a fantastic Victorian-era house. The picture used for the story is probably the poorest choice imaginable. Go a block south, and you will see new buildings, great resteraunts, and a great area. I love my neighborhood and town, and it is getting a bad rap with this story.
