Tampa activists upset after no indictment of Ferguson cop

Share

On Tuesday, the day after the St. Louis County grand jury handed down its decision it would not indict the white Ferguson police officer for the shooting of an unarmed black teen, there were demonstrations in St. Petersburg and in Tampa.

About twenty people braved the rain outside the Hillsborough County Courthouse in downtown Tampa Tuesday morning for a Ferguson Solidarity rally.

We hear the voices of Veronica Juarez, Dezeray Lyn, Ali (she did not want to give her last name), Morberto Gazga, Marisol Marquez and Laila Abelaziz.
