Demonstrators protesting the acquittal of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley stage a die-in in front of police headquarters.

St. Louis, Missouri, is again the scene of clashes between protesters and police after a former police officer was acquitted in the shooting of a black man.

Three years ago, the nearby town of Ferguson, Missouri, saw heavily armored police use riot shields, tear gas and rubber bullets to quell protests after the killing of Michael Brown.

The NAACP says Missouri’s history of discrimination and injustice has led the organization to issue its first-ever travel advisory.

What has Missouri learned in the three years since Michael Brown was killed? Have police and protesters adjusted their tactics? Or … is it more of the same?
