Two charged at Miami protest of Ferguson shooting

Author: Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) – Authorities say two people were arrested during a protest in Miami in reaction to the Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury decision.

Approximately 150 people gathered outside the Richard Gerstein Justice Building near downtown Miami Tuesday evening. No violence or property damage was reported, but Miami police say two South Florida men were arrested during the demonstration and charged with failure to obey a lawful order.

The demonstration in Miami was just one of the rallies taking place in cities around the U.S. after a grand jury decided not to indict a white police officer who killed a black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.
