Ferguson: White officer who killed a black will not be prosecuted

Thousands of people came out protesting after a grand jury decision did not indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black 18 years old in Ferguson Missouri.

Angry protesters shouted at the police in Ferguson while some were chanting "murderer" and some throwing stones and bottles even police car windows were smashed.

Police threw tear gas at the angry protester in suburban St Louis after the grand jury decision was announced late Monday.

Wilson shot Brown 12 times, according to evidence presented to the grand jury. While some Activists suggested that officer Darren Wilson will not be charged and were planing to stage a protest the night decisions will be made by the grand jury.

With the ongoing protest, the family has come to thank everybody for the support they have been given during a time like this and urge the protesters to channel  their frustrations for positive change.

"We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions."

"While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change. We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen," the statement added.

"We respectfully ask that you please keep your protests peaceful. Answering violence with violence is not the appropriate reaction. Let's not just make noise, let's make a difference," it said.

    I thought we have gone past the age wherw when white committes an offence and he will go scotfree, because that’s what am sensing here why will evidence point that he shot a black man down 12 times and the court will let him go free thats injustice and I urge all the protesters to continue until the right judgement is passed by the court
