St. Louis’ County grand jury decided Monday (Nov. 24) that Officer Darren Wilson, the Ferguson policeman who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown last August, will not be indicted on any charges.
This has caused an uproar in the city of Ferguson, MO, and riots and protests have broken out all over the nation.
Just in the city of Ferguson last night, there have been roughly 150 gunshots fired, over 80 arrests, at least 12 buildings burned down, and several cars set afire.
Here are some photographs of the terrible struggle that Ferguson is currently going through, and the shockwaves of protests and riots that have cropped up in New York, Los Angeles, D.C. and Chicago.
Shots of what look like different war zones across America are a painful reminder of how explosive racial tension still is in our country, as well as the emotion that we have wrapped up in this trial.
Pray for safety for the residents of Ferguson, and pray that we can reconcile.
