GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Local activists met in downtown Greensboro to protest what they call incidents of police brutality.

On Aug. 9, Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.

"People aren't ready to let this drop and I don't think they're ever going to until something gets done, something changes," said Jeremiah Long, a Guilford College student.

Long went to Ferguson after the shooting to show his support. "It was really powerful, really emotional."

The Grand Jury convened Aug. 20. Brown was unarmed when he was shot five times. Officer Wilson is reportedly arguing he feared for his life before firing shots.

Long is cautiously hopeful Wilson will be indicted in the shooting death of Brown. "The more angry people get the more change happens."

The Grand Jury does have until January to announce its ruling. Court officials have said a decision could come down within a week or two.
