Baltimore Pastor Jamal H. Bryant was among protesters arrested in Ferguson, Mo., on Monday, as he and other clergy demonstrated against police brutality and misconduct.
Bryant was on the front lines of a crowd of hundreds of protesters and faith leaders marching from a church to the Police Department in Ferguson, the town where unarmed teenager Michael Brown was fatally shot by police two months ago.
In a tweet posted Monday afternoon, Bryant said he had been released.
“Just released from St Louis county!” the message read. “We are being charged with assaulting police & disturbing the peace #NoJusticeNoPeace”
Demonstrators gathered in the pouring rain, and several were arrested at the Ferguson Police Department where protesters sang “We Shall Overcome,” an anthem of the civil rights movement half a century ago, and others chanted: “No justice, no peace.”
