US cities protest after grand jury verdict not to charge white Policeman for shooting unarmed black teenager

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – A number of other US cities have seen protests over the decision not to charge a white Policeman for shooting dead an unarmed black teenager. Thousands of people rallied late Monday in U.S. cities including Los Angeles and New York to passionately but peacefully protest the grand jury’s decision.

They led marches, waved signs and shouted chants of “hands up, don’t shoot,” the refrain that has become a rallying cry in protests over police killings across the U.S. The most disruptive demonstrations were in the St. Louis area and Oakland, California, where protesters flooded the lanes of freeways, milling about stopped cars with their hands raised in the air.
