Office Michael Brelo was one of several officers who shot 137 shots into a car after it backfired, killing an unarmed couple. Brelo, who emptied 49 bullets was the only one indicted but has now been acquitted.

Activists immediately responded to the verdict saying "We are calm but mad as hell."

Riot police, clearly expecting the response, appeared ready. 

Many activists have taken to the streets…

…where they are attempting to shut them down.

Police appear to be blocking some streets and attempting to detour the protests.
