Protests erupt in Pittsburgh following Antwon Rose verdict

A white former police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teen fleeing a high-stakes traffic stop outside Pittsburgh has been acquitted. Former East Pittsburgh police officer Michael Rosfeld (top right) fired on 17-year-old Antwon Rose II (bottom right) last summer outside Pittsburgh in a killing that sparked weeks of unrest. Jurors informed the court Friday night that they had reached a verdict and acquitted Rosfeld. Protesters began to gather outside the Allegheny County Courthouse after the verdict was announced. The crowd (seen left) chanted ‘it is our duty to fight for our freedom’. Other chants included ‘no Justice, no peace’ and ‘three shots in the back. How you justify that?’
