Demonstrations have swept major cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago as well as dozens of other smaller cities, with thousands expressing anger that a grand jury failed to indict police officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Brown, an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Missouri last August..

Hundreds of people are now marching to the Missouri State Capital of Jefferson City to show their concern for what happened to Brown, who was 18 at the time of the shooting.
