The Missouri grand jury’s decision to acquit police officer Darren Wilson, who was accused of killing teenager Michael Brown, caused a wave of wild protests. RT has been covering the fallout, with one of its producers becoming injured in Ferguson.
Lorena de la Cuesta, a field producer at RT’s Ruptly news agency, was awaiting the grand jury’s decision on Monday, together with hundreds of people who took to the streets of Ferguson ahead of the announcement.
When the decision to acquit Wilson was made public, de la Cuesta reported some bottles immediately being thrown at police in Ferguson. She also tweeted a picture of sniper on the roof of the Ferguson Police Department.
