Five St. Louis Rams players are among the many people across the world protesting against the Grand Jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer for shooting an African American man in Ferguson, Mo. The players held their hands up on the field before their game Sunday, using the “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture protesters have been demonstrating for months, according to CNN. The St. Louis Police Officers Association has demanded the Rams and the NFL apologize. NFL Spokesman Brian McCarthy says the players will not be disciplined for their actions.
