WASHINGTON — Thousands of people across the nation turned out Monday night to show solidarity with the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, after a grand jury decided not to indict the officer who shot Michael Brown.
Crowds of people gathered in Times Square, outside the White House gates and in downtown Philadelphia. Many protesters were shouting, “Hands up, don’t shoot” — a phrase that has become linked to protests over the Aug. 9 shooting of Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager, by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
