ST. LOUIS - A handful of people are gathered in downtown St. Louis for what the organizer is calling a "pro-community" car cruise.

Organizer Paul Byrd says the Thanksgiving morning cruise is meant to be peaceful and to counteract the violence seen earlier this week in Ferguson after a grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

The Imperial, Missouri, man declined to say whether he supported Wilson but said he supports police officers.

There was minimal police presence across from Busch Stadium, where a handful of mostly pickup trucks were waiting in the cold, and no protesters.

Wednesday night's protests in Ferguson were mostly quiet, with no reports of major confrontations or damage. Protests in Los Angeles and Oakland, California, saw dozens of arrests.
