Protests follow decision not to file charges in Minneapolis police shooting

MINNEAPOLIS –Protesters gathered Wednesday night in north Minneapolis near the spot where a black man was shot in a confrontation with police last November.The gathering came hours after a prosecutor declined to charge two police officers in the death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark. The prosecutor said the officers were justifiably in fear for their lives as Clark tried to get hold of an officer’s gun.The demonstrators marched down a major street to downtown, chanting things like, “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” and, “No justice, no peace. Prosecute the police.”
