Third night of US protests against police killings

Protesters march in downtown Washington DC on December 5, 2014 during a third night of nationwide protests, after a grand jury decided not to charge a white police officer in the choking death of a black manThe signs of growing discontent took place as a New York prosecutor said that a grand jury would consider charges in one of the cases that has again brought to the fore the distrust felt by many African Americans towards the police. Akai Gurley, 28, a father of a young daughter, was shot dead when a police officer opened fire in a dimly lit staircase at a Brooklyn apartment building as he walked with his girlfriend late on November 20. Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson said he would present all the evidence for a grand jury to decide whether charges should be brought. New York’s police commissioner has said Gurley was a totally innocent victim and the family, who gathered for a private wake on Friday night ahead of the funeral on Saturday, has demanded justice.
