CLAYTON, MO (KTVI)- A diverse group of activists plan to hit the city of Clayton in the pocket book after the grand jury decision. They are set to peacefully disrupt businesses.
These individuals gathered Thursday night to work on their strategy. They want to flood Clayton on the first workday after the grand jury decision.
They are protesting a justice system they say has consistently failed minorities, including Micheal Brown.
Their plan calls for peaceful protests, but some of the protests that have taken place after Brown was killed by a Ferguson police officer have turned violent.
It has forced law enforcement to walk a fine line. Last month a federal judge ruled that some of the protesters have had their rights violated by law enforcement officers.
Law enforcement has also been criticized for using riot gear, tear gas and armored trucks.
The issue was a topic during a roundtable discussion with Chief Sam Dotson, Chief Jon Belmar and Captain Ron Johnson, Thursday.
All three said that their officers have learned lessons since the initial protests and that they have a specific plan in place.
They also emphasized that they will protect all businesses and not allow anyone to break the law.
