Athletes react to Ferguson grand jury decision
Tuesday November 25th, 2014

A grand jury declined to indict Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson on Monday, touching off more protests and violence in the city that has been in upheaval since the Aug. 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Athletes and sports personalities reacted to the news on social media.

Most notable of those reactions, perhaps, was that of Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, who has made his views on other political and social issues known in the past. James and his Miami Heat teammate posted a photo of themselves wearing hoodies in March 2012 in response to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Below is a collection of athletes' reactions:
