Angelenos React to Ferguson Decision

Angelenos gathered in LA's Leimert Park to await the city of Ferguson, MO grand jury's decision on to try a Ferguson Police Officer for shooting of Michael Brown.
The grand jury decided not to try the officer for the shooting of the unarmed youth. Many Angelenos felt that the decision was racially motivated and just another form of racism against black people in America.
Hundreds of people took to the streets of LA in protest. Several roads and freeways were shut down in to the late evening.
