Ferguson Protesters Temporarily Shut Down San Francisco Train Service



About 20 protesters chained themselves to the handrail of a train at the West Oakland station. Train service was partially restored after about an hour after police removed the handrail from the train and arrested the demonstrators, according to NBC Bay Area.






An organizer told NBC that protesters planned to shut down the train system for four hours, the same amount of time Michael Brown's body laid on the ground after he was shot.
Protesters of the grand jury decision also temporarily shut down a St. Louis shopping mall on Friday.
In 2009, a BART officer shot and killed an unarmed black man named Oscar Grant. A San Francisco jury ruled in favor of the officer in a 2011 civil rights case for the shooting. His story was later made into the fictional film "Fruitvale Station."
