Thousands of people rallied late Monday in U.S. cities including Los Angeles and New York to passionately but peacefully protest a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer who killed a black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

They led marches, waved signs and shouted chants of “Hands Up! Don’t Shoot,” the slogan that has become a rallying cry in protests over police killings across the country.

Activists had been planning to protest even before the nighttime announcement that Officer Darren Wilson will not be charged in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

The racially charged case in Ferguson has inflamed tensions and reignited debates over police-community relations even in cities hundreds of miles from the predominantly black St. Louis suburb. For many staging protests Monday, the shooting was personal, calling to mind other galvanizing encounters with local law enforcement.

  1. This lawlessness is amazing! They’re like the moose-lims: either it’s justice as they feel it ought be ir it’s not just!
    Police should shoot these problem mskers and restore law and order. Same in Israel! These are criminals engaged in criminal activity.

  2. Good job obama and sharpton inciting these riots. They should both be jailed for this. And then people wonder why the Governer of Missouri called for the national guard to show up.

  3. I heard a protester bring interviewed. She described the event as enjoyable. They are looking for an excuse to behave that way. There is a huge problem in this country and I don’t mean racism.

  4. It’s a case of opportunity knocks. Free holiday shopping. The facts in the case didn’t matter to any of them, including the rabble-rouser -in- chief.

  5. “Pray for the welfare of government for without them men would eat each other alive.” Sometimes this is even more evident than other times.
