Hands Up! (and down) For Michael Brown
The Ferguson protesters (when they are not looting liquor stores) are protesting the killing of Michael Brown by showing their hands up. Well, and from the picture below, some have their hands a tad down.
Yet again, the protesters took to the sidewalks and streets, facing a row of police guarding the St. Louis County prosecutor's office. "Hands up!" they chanted, their arms aloft. "Don't shoot."
"This is how the boy died!" Kendrick Strong, 42, hollered at police officers Tuesday morning. "This is how the boy died! With his hands up in the air!"
