Protesters march, chant in Ferguson
FERGUSON (AP) - Several dozen protesters have been marching in Ferguson as the community awaits a decision from a grand jury considering whether to indict the police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.
The protesters out Saturday evening were praying, playing music and chanting slogans including, "No justice, no peace" and "Mike Brown means, we've got to fight back." Cars stopped and drivers honked, slowing traffic.
Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden, spoke to protesters through a bullhorn and urged people to be careful, saying, "don't agitate them, and don't let them agitate y'all."
The grand jury is deliberating whether charges are warranted against Officer Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of Brown. Wilson is white and Brown, who was unarmed, was black. There have been many demonstrations since Brown's death.
