Transcript for Protests in Ferguson, Missouri Begin to Cool Down
And now to the aftermath of the grand jury decision in Ferguson. Protesters out again today, including one just steps from the big Thanksgiving day parade here in New York. A crowd gathering on the steps of the New York public library. And a rowdier group clashes with police nearby. Seven people were arrested. But in Ferguson, finally, a day without confrontation. ABC's Alex Perez is there again tonight. Reporter: Overnight, more protests, from Los Angeles, where 145 were arrested, to that scene in New York City. Even in London, these demonstrators outside the U.S. Embassy. And today, word that two men arrested last week had plans to bomb the gateway arch in St. Louis, and attack the local police chief and prosecutor. Authorities today questioning whether the men were actually capable of carrying out their plans. Meanwhile, in Ferguson, after days of unrest, relative calm. The police station, once a rallying point for protesters, a ghost town this Thanksgiving. And from the ashes, now, some beacons of hope. Bakery shop owner Natalie Dubose almost lost her business during those first violent protests here in August. And this kweek, she stood in tears after learning looters broke her windows. But as word of the damage spread, donations started pouring in, more than 50 orders just today and more than $200,000 raised online. When you see all these protest protesters destroying and then you see the other side, so many people donating, what is that like? Grateful. Just grateful. There is a spirit of determination in the air now, that we're determined to be here. Reporter: And Natalie says the response from the community has been so huge, she already has more orders than she can handle for Christmas. The National Guard still in place here. Many hoping this newfound peace on the streets is here to stay.
