US activists demand police reform as Ferguson cop quits

Members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and other demonstrators march in Ferguson, Missouri, on November 29, 2014US activists launched a week-long march in Missouri to demand sweeping police reforms as the white officer who shot dead an unarmed black teen in Ferguson resigned. The officer, 28-year-old Darren Wilson, has left the force, citing safety concerns, according to a letter published by local media Saturday. A grand jury’s decision last Monday not to charge Wilson in connection with the August 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown touched off days of sporadic violence in Ferguson, a suburb of St Louis. On Saturday, a core group of about 100 marchers, many from other states, set out on a 120-mile (192-kilometer) “Journey for Justice,” heading from the St Louis suburb of Ferguson to the Missouri state capital Jefferson City.
