Dozens arrested during third night of Ferguson protests in Oakland
on November 27, 2014
Dozens of protesters were arrested in Oakland Wednesday during a third night of protests against the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri.
Far smaller than the thousands strong, largely peaceful crowds of Monday night, Wednesday’s protest was marked by small bands of people prowling downtown streets, vandalizing property and throwing rocks and bottles.
Oakland Police are bracing for potential unrest again tonight.
Demonstrations sprung in cities across the country after the grand jury declined to indict Darren Wilson, the white Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, in August.
