Police Cases Spark Protests Across Country
Marchers arrive at the intersection where Ezell Ford was killed on Dec. 5 in Los Angeles. Ford, 25, who had been diagnosed with depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, was reportedly unarmed when shot and killed by police on Aug. 11. The protest was one of many staged nationwide after grand juries investigating the deaths of Michal Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York failed to indict the police officers involved in both incidents.
