FERGUSON, United States: Police in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson arrested 15 people after fresh protests Friday (Saturday in Manila) over a grand jury decision not to indict a white policeman for shooting dead an unarmed black teenager. The arrests came after protesters forced a crowded St. Louis mall to close for around two hours earlier in the day, demanding a boycott of post-Thanksgiving shopping and justice for Michael Brown. Monday’s announcement that officer Darren Wilson will not face charges sparked demonstrations, arson and eruptions of gunfire in Ferguson, and protesters were again out on the streets in the predominantly black suburb on Friday after the rallies looked to peter out.
