Protests grew in size and intensity across the country on the second night of demonstrations over the grand jury’s decision not to charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson with a crime for the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. On Tuesday evening, demonstrators spilled into the streets—and shut down highways across the country in protest.
