St. Louis Rams show support for Ferguson Protesters

Five Rams players used the team's pregame introductions to offer a show of support for nearby Ferguson before Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.

As the offense was introduced, Rams tight end Jared Cook and receivers Kenny Britt, Stedman Bailey, Chris Givens and Tavon Austin stopped near the tunnel and raised their hands in a nod to the fatal shooting of teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9.This of course angered police across the nation and conservative pundits who want the players punished. It's amazing that those who claim that we all have the same rights and are equal under the law want someone punished for PEACEFULLY exercising their rights. Watch the players protest below:
