Protests Of Grand Jury Decision Fan Out Across The Country

Public reaction to a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson has ranged from fire and looting close to where Wilson shot Michael Brown to peaceful protests nearby.

Other protests were held in large and small cities and college towns across America today; photos from those scenes show a variety of demonstrators, tactics, and responses.

Sen. Chris Murphy tweeted this photo from Central Connecticut State University.

In New York City, protesters poured through Times Square, and for the second night in a row blocked major roads and bridges.

Police Commissioner William Bratton told The Associated Press that “as long as they remain nonviolent, and as long as they don’t engage in issues that cause fear or create vandalism, we will work with them to allow them to demonstrate.”
