Bottom line, might is right, they have the curfew and the fire power, you have one life...why waste it?
While the right of the people to peaceably assemble must not be infringed the operative word is "peaceably". Actions such as causing property damage and tossing bottle at cops isn't peaceable. While some in the crowd were certainly not causing problems others were so, at that point, the whole crowd is deemed to be less than peaceable.
I would also like to point out that a lot of the folks who are pissed off about the cops in Ferguson are the same ones who were seeking to have the Bundy Ranch protesters hauled off even though at that event no property was destroyed and nobody got shot.

No I don't.
Folks (except for the stupid ones like in this article), know what curfew means. And if they really didn't know, would be part of a wider problem.
They were charged with failure to disperse. So now they know for sure.
The reality is that they most likely knew, but were trying to push the boundaries.
