PORTLAND, Oregon---A touching photo of a white
police officer hugging an African American boy at
a Portland protest this week has drawn heavy atten-
tion on social media.
The moment was captured by a photographer cov-
ering a protest in Portland, Oregon, over a Missouri
grand jury s decision not to indict Ferguson police
officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael
At the Portland rally was 12-year-old Devonte Hart,
who stood crying out of sadness over the events in
Ferguson. He was holding a "Free Hugs" sign.
Portland Police Sgt Bret Barnum saw the boy s sign
and asked if he could have a hug. The boy gave him
one. Devonte s mom Jen Hart was there Tuesday and
remembers the moment as "one of the most emo-
tionally charged experiences I ve had as a mother."
The officer cleared on Monday by a grand jury in
the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager
resigned from the Police Department in Ferguson,
last night, The Associated Press reported.
The resignation of the officer, Darren Wilson,
capped a day of protests and an organised march over
the fatal shooting of the teenager, Michael Brown, in
Officer Wilson, who had been with the force for
three years, cited security fears in his resignation
letter, which was released by his lawyer, according
to the news service.
Ferguson s mayor and city attorney said they had
not been notified of the resignation.
Earlier in the day, about 100 marchers led by the
NAACP set off from the street where Brown was
killed on a week-long walk to Missouri s Capitol, 120
miles from this fractured city.
They invoked the Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr s
1965 march in Selma, Alabama, the Freedom Rides
and other Civil Rights-era pilgrimages for justice,
The group sang as it made its way up West Floris-
sant Avenue, past the burned-out husks of an auto-
parts store, a beauty parlour and other businesses
destroyed in the chaos after a grand jury voted on
Monday not to indict the officer in the death of
Brown. A trumpeter played We Shall Overcome.
