Rams players will donate items to Ferguson residents at holiday party
The five Rams players who took the field earlier this month with their hands raised in the "hands up, don't shoot" pose, will help "distribute basic needs items" to people in Ferguson, Missouri, at a Christmas party on Friday.
Before the Rams' game against the Raiders in Week 13, Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens all walked out during player introductions making the gesture made famous by protestors in Ferguson after the shooting death of Michael Brown.
The St. Louis Police Officers Association issued a statement criticizing the players and calling for them to be disciplined.
