Demonstrators across US walk out of work, school as part of #Ferguson protests

People rally in New York Citys Union Square before marching through the street in protest to the Ferguson grand jury decision to not indict officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown case, Dec. 1, 2014.



Protesters across the country walked out of jobs or school today to honor Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager killed this summer by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.
Many of the walkouts happened at 12:01 p.m. CT, the exact time Brown was shot on Aug. 9. The movement gained steam on social media with the hashtag #HandsUpWalkOut, and organized protests happened in dozens of cities.
At universities from New York to Los Angeles, students marched holding signs saying "Black Lives Matter" and demanding "justice" for Brown.
In some parts of the country, the protesters even included middle school students.
Writer Shaun King told ABC News his 12-year-old daughter walked out during her lunch period at her Orange County, California middle school to join the protest.

  1. idiotic sheep. Hopefully, all of their families will be the targets of violent criminals like Michael Brown in the near future. Brown gambled with his life - and lost. That's all that happened in Ferguson. When you attack a cop, you should expect to be executed.
