Students gathered Tuesday morning in the Quad to join together in moments of silence and speech in light of the Nov. 24 Ferguson decision.
Michael Brown was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Mo. The boy was unarmed and his body lay in the street for four and a half hours after six bullets hit him ending his life. After 100 days of decision-making, a St. Louis County grand jury decided on Nov. 24 not to indict or bring any criminal charges against Wilson.
After the decision was announced Monday night, the country reacted and Texas State students held a peaceful rally this morning to honor Brown’s memory and lead a discussion on race relations in the United States.
