Students protest Ferguson grand jury decision

“Hell no!” That was one of the first things shouted out at Speaker Circle on the University of Missouri’s campus after Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced the grand jury had decided not to press charges against Officer Darren Wilson.

“He did not just say that!”

Students expressed outrage at the decision, some immediately bursting into tears and others silent with disbelief.

They held hands and gave four and a half minutes of silence for Michael Brown.

Then they marched across campus to join other protesters at the Boone County Courthouse, chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot!” and “Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Killer cops have got to go!” and “No justice, no peace! No crooked police!”

Some students said they skipped going home for Thanksgiving break to be a part of the peaceful protests.
