As Twitchy reported early this morning, another night of protests in Ferguson, Mo., included agitators throwing frozen bottles of water at police, as well as rocks and other objects.

Then there’s this clown, whose pitching arm wasn’t up to the task of throwing a traffic barrier at a line of police.

In anticipation of another night of violence, St. Louis County is getting prepared — apparently by sending in the St. Louis County Highways and Traffic Department to round up all the loose rocks in the area.

It might just be crazy enough to work.
