Scenes From Ferguson-Inspired Protests Nationwide

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Dozens of cities across the United States saw mass protests for a second consecutive night Tuesday as demonstrators continued to express dissatisfaction over a Ferguson, Mo. grand jury’s decision Monday not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown. Outraged protesters flooded the streets of New York City, Boston, Los Angeles and other American cities, one day after a county prosecutor announced that a grand jury meeting since August decided against indicting Wilson in the shooting. In all, demonstrations took place in nearly 40 states overnight. Brown’s death reignited racial tensions in the majority-black community of Ferugson and sparked weeks of protests in and around the St. Louis suburb following his killing by Wilson. In Manhattan, thousands took over Union Square before groups of protesters splintered off to Times Square, the Manhattan Bridge, FDR Drive and other highly-trafficed areas. NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton reportedly said officers were under orders to allow protesters to demonstrate, as long as they did so peacefully. Videos posted on social media showed protesters waving signs that read “Black Lives Matter,” and chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot!”—a reference to witness accounts that said Brown raised his hands in the air during the confrontation, signaling that he was surrendering.Below are some of the many tweets and vines posted throughout last night documenting the unfolding protests: New York City Chicago Boston Los Angeles NYC: Protests Begin At #UnionSquare –#Ferguson –— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) November 25, 2014last_img read more
