Baton Rouge group urges dialogue in wake of Ferguson decision

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

The violence they were preparing for but hoping against has happened.  Fires and protestors are raging in Ferguson, Missouri this morning.  And from coast to coast, thousands of protestors have taken to city streets, angry with what many say is a failed system.  We'll bring you the latest from the epicenter and beyond.  Graham Ulkins is watching everything very closely form the Breaking News Center.  Here locally, Gerron Jordan is going to give you a look at what is sure to be a very busy Metro Council meeting tonight.  A handful of big items that will certainly effect you.  We'll see you for 9NTM, The Big Extra Hour, and The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.

Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
