(CNN) – From New York to Los Angeles and many cities in between, protesters flooded the streets to denounce a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson.

A day after the country learned there would be no criminal charges against Wilson for killing unarmed teenager Michael Brown, protests sprouted up in more than 170 U.S. cities.

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.

New York

Hundreds of people marched through Times Square, shutting down traffic on 7th Avenue — one of the city’s busiest streets.

Some demonstrators also directed their anger at New York police

Protesters shut down lanes of the FDR, or Franklin D. Roosevelt East River Drive. “Mike Brown! Mike Brown!” they chanted.

Several long lines of protesters…

Police Order Protesters Off Ferguson Streets

Originally posted on TIME:

(FERGUSON, Mo.) — Officers have ordered protesters off Ferguson streets after what had been several hours of largely peaceful demonstrations.

Protesters had gathered outside the Ferguson Police Department on Tuesday for a second night following a grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Despite several arrests, there was a far different feel than the previous night, which saw arson, looting and rioting.

Several hours after nightfall, a group of people broke off from the crowd and marched down from the police department. A police car was torched outside city hall. Police quickly used a fire extinguisher to douse the flames released tear gas.

Officers soon took to loudspeakers to tell protesters to leave the streets or face arrest.

Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin Mock NFL Fines, Policies In Satirical Press Conference

Originally posted on Black America Web:

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — With the help of a cardboard cutout, the Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin took digs at the NFL during a news conference on Tuesday after the league issued a $100,000 fine to teammate Marshawn Lynch for not speaking to the media.

Sherman and Baldwin made mention of everything from the league’s sponsorship deals with major beer companies to their own personal endorsements that are not affiliated with the NFL, to the talk of player safety with the Seahawks about to play their second game in five days.

The point of their performance seemed to be that whatever they said — real or satirical — it would not be a violation of the league’s media policy on speaking with reporters.

“The other day Marshawn Lynch got fined $100,000. Did you know that, $100,000?” Sherman said. “And it’s like they wouldn’t have paid him $100,000 if…

Jordin Sparks Calls Out Jason Derulo In New Single [AUDIO]

Jason and Jordin seemed so cute when they were together that it knocked everyone for a loop when their split was announced just weeks after the 2014 VMAs. The couple had shown up to the event in matching all-white everything. If that doesn’t say young love and commitment, we don’t know what does!

Let’s just say that the report on Jason was not good. He came across looking pretty ungrateful in her LA Leakers remix of “How Bout Now”!

Jordin hasn’t said much on their split, preferring to keep their business private at least long enough for her to put her feelings into song. She’s usually sugar and spice, but she vocally opened up a can on Jason with the song!
