The American town of Ferguson is ablaze after the white police officer that shot unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was told he would not face prosecution.

In the wake of the judgement, violence broke out and shops, car lots and police cars were torched.

While many were perhaps justifiably angry at the verdict others seemed to be more interested in taking advantage of the lack of law and order.

Shops across the town fell victim to looters but many appeared to forget that the eyes of the world's media were on them.

Let's start with a special mention to this man who quite brazenly stole a crossbow.

Yup, that's right.

It's all got a bit 'Hunger Games'.

And there were more...

This fella might want to get a bigger mask.

And don't forget looters, this is what happens when you get caught.
