St. Louis Rams Show Support For Ferguson Protestors With “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot”


St. Louis Rams players Tavon Austin, Kenny Brit, Stedman Bailey, Jared Cook, and Chris Givens entered the field at Edward Jones Domes for Sunday’s game against the Raiders in the “hands up, don’t shoot” pose, which has become a touchstone of the Ferguson protests ever since the killing of Michael Brown by Darren Wilson in August.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
