Your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, August 14, 2014.
1. Missouri unrest. Tensions escalated in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson after the most violent night yet since the deadly police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The town's police chief said 12 people were arrested during protests in which heavily armed police fired tear gas and smoke bombs on largely peaceful protesters. Two reporters were also arrested as police tried to clear out a McDonald's where they were writing. The Washington Post's Wesley Lowery and the Huffington Post's Ryan Reilly both described being roughed up by police. They were later released without explanation.
