For a second night in a row, protests around the country have emerged in the wake of a grand jury declining to indict Ferguson, Mo. police officer Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown.

In New York City, the nation’s largest city, protests have been ongoing for hours. Monday night, they shut down the city’s biggest bridges. Tuesday they’ve shut down some of New York’s biggest roadways and many demonstrators are headed to the bridges once again.

Much less peaceful: A car plowed through protesters in Minneapolis, leaving at least one woman in the hospital.
