Ferguson In The Media: Newspaper Front Pages The Morning After The Decision


It was announced on Monday night that a grand jury would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown that occurred in August.

Frustration and anger over the announcement triggered more confrontation between police and protestors as many took to the streets in solidarity for justice. While most protests in Ferguson and neighboring suburbs were peaceful, others turned into violent riots. Protesters threw bottles and rocks at police.The police responded by releasing tear gas.

There were 29 arrests in Ferguson, but no reported serious injuries.

Protests also expanded past Ferguson. Protesters gathered in the streets of St. Louis, outside the White House in Washington, D.C, and in New York's Times Square and Union Square.

On Tuesday, news of the peaceful protests and riots were on the forefront of both local and national newspapers. Here is a look at some of the front pages.
