#HNNImpact #FergusonDecision Obama requests for PEACE all over the country!


President Obama on request for peace in Ferguson: "Michael Brown’s parents have lost more than anyone. We should be honoring their wishes."

Outrage over the grand jury's decision escalated from coast to coast, with protests in about 170 cities nationwide.
From New York to Los Angeles and dozens and dozens of cities in between, protesters flooded the streets to denounce the grand jury's decision. Some demonstrations blocked bridges, tunnels and major highways. But unlike the violence that erupted in Ferguson on Monday night, the protests across the country Tuesday night were largely peaceful.

"They have given us no justice! We will give them no peace," protesters chanted as they massed in front of the Underground Atlanta shopping district in Atlanta.

In the New York area, they briefly blocked one of the entrances to the Lincoln Tunnel.

"We are on the side of Michael Brown to fight for what is right," the Rev. Al Sharpton said in front of Brown's family, earlier Tuesday. ".... "We may have lost round one, but the fight is not over."

The vast majority of protests in the weeks after Brown's death have been peaceful. And authorities hope to keep it that way.

"All agree that the violence we saw in the areas of Ferguson (Monday) night cannot be repeated," Nixon said.
