FULL STORY: “Peaceful Protest” in Athens

The NAACP and Athens for Everyone are holding a march and vigil in about a half hour to protest the lack of indictment against the police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. A grand jury refused to indict Officer Darren Wilson after killing an unarmed Michael Brown. The non-indictment has sparked a global rally for police reform. Several UGA students tell us have experienced some form of racial profiling. Reporter Brianna Watts talked to some UGA students and learned about their experiences with racial profiling and found out why they’re concerned with this issue.
