An announcement was released by Ferguson PD acquitting Darren Wilson for the killing of Mike Brown Monday night.  Protests broke out nationwide.

An unarmed black teen, Mike Brown, was fatally shot by a white police officer, Darren Wilson, this past August.  Evidence was contradictory, as was eye witness testimony.

A grand jury convened to decide whether Darren Wilson should be indicted, meaning charges would be pressed against him, or be acquitted, which means there is not enough evidence to support official charges.

Protests (see pictures here) broke out nationwide; buildings and cars were set on fire in Ferguson.  While there was violence, not all protests were nonviolent.

Police in Ferguson released tear gas onto the protesters.  CNN caught this on camera, catching news casters Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo in the middle.

Protests were also conducted in other areas across the nation, including Los Angeles and New York City.

Mike Brown’s family has asked for peaceful protest in spite of the controversial grand jury ruling.

“We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions,” they said.  “While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change.  Let’s not just make noise; let’s make a difference.”
