Professional athletes around the country took to social media Monday night following a grand jury’s decision to not indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch made the announcement during a 25-minute speech Monday night shortly after 9pm EST.
NBA stars LeBron James and Kobe Bryant were among athletes who voiced their reactions to the news.
LeBron James posted this photo to his Instagram account with the caption, “As a society how do we do better and stop things like this happening time after time!! I’m so sorry to these families. Violence is not the answer people. Retaliation isn’t the solution as well. #PrayersUpToTheFamilies #WeHaveToDoBetter”
