Ferguson protests LIVE: Rioters hurling ‘urine-filled bottles’ at police

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Describing Michael Brown as a very “powerful man,” Wilson compared him to Hulk Hogan (American wrestler) and said that had he not pulled the trigger, he himself would have been dead.
Meanwhile in his first public comments made in an interview to the ABC news, the 28-year-old white cop stood by his act of shooting Michael Brown, saying he had a “clear conscience” as he knew that he “did his job right”.
On being asked if anything he could have done differently that could have been done to avoid the shooting, the cop answered “nothing”.
According to the BBC, the 12 cities that erupted in protests are: St Louis, Seattle, Albuquerque, New York, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Oakland, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Portland, Chicago and Boston.
Though Ferguson saw a “better night” on Tuesday as the violence was not as fierce as reported on Monday night. However, over a dozen US cities, from New York to Seattle, saw fresh protests erupting over the jury’s decision on Tuesday night, the BBC reported.
The protests against the grand jury announcement of not charging the white cop for Michale Brown’s shooting continued for the second night in Ferguson, Missouri and also spread to other cities across the US.

The fatal August 9 shooting of a black unarmed teenager named Michael Brown by a white policeman named Darren Wilson in Missouri’s Ferguson had sparked weeks of violence and unrest in the town besides raking up the sensitive issue of racial bias against the blacks.

What reignited the riots in Ferguson last night was the ruling by grand jury that acquitted the white police officer Darren Wilson and did not charge him over Michael Brown’s shooting.

The ruling has left the family of Michael Brown disappointed and evoked widespread protests across dozens of US cities against what is being assumed as the excessive use of force against blacks by white cops.
