Peaceful Ferguson Protest in Rockland

On Tuesday night nearly 60 people met in Memorial Park in Spring Valley to participate in a peaceful protest organized by the Rockland Coalition to End the New Jim Crow to voice their disagreement against the jury’s recent decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson of Ferguson, Missouri for the fatal shooting of 18 year old Michael Brown. Protesters stated that they gathered to express their anger, many carrying signs urging justice be sought and that “black lives matter’, while chanting through the evening things such as “hands up, don’t shoot”. About 50 police officers, including members of the sheriff’s mounted patrol were brought in as a precaution, though they were not needed as the rally ended peacefully.
