The acquittal on Friday of a white former St. Louis police officer in the 2011 shooting death of a black man is the latest in a nationwide series of racially tinged police killings that mostly ended in the exoneration of the officers involved.


The former St. Louis officer Womens Curtis Samuel Jersey , Jason Stockley, 36, was acquitted by Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson of first-degree murder in the killing of Anthony Lamar Smith, 24, prompting hundreds of protesters to take to the city’s streets to voice their anger.


Similar protests, some of them violent, followed police killings of other African-American men and the news that the officers involved would face no legal consequences.


Here are five recent cases:


MICHAEL BROWN


The shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey , Missouri, near St. Louis, on Aug. 9, 2014 sparked nearly two weeks protests and rioting that subsided at the family’s urging just before Brown’s funeral.


The case against the white officer, Darren Wilson, went to a grand jury, which decided on Nov. 24 Womens Donte Jackson Jersey , 2014 not to indict him, sparking more street protests. The U.S. Justice Department also cleared him on March 4, 2015. Wilson is no longer with the Ferguson Police Department.


ERIC GARNER


Accused of illegally selling individual cigarettes, Eric Garner, 43, died on July 17, 2014 after he was arrested in New York City’s Staten Island borough and put into a chokehold by New York City Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo Womens DJ Moore Jersey , who is white. The encounter was captured on video.


Several street protests in New York and other cities followed news of the killing, and again five months later, on Dec. 3, when a grand jury did not return an indictment against Pantaleo, who is still with the NYPD.


FREDDIE GRAY


In Baltimore, 25-year-old Freddie Gray was arrested on April 12, 2015 after police said he fled the scene unprovoked in a high crime area while in possession of an illegal switchblade.


After being transported in a police van Devin Funchess Jersey , Gray was hospitalized unconscious and died on April 19 of what was determined to be a neck injury.


Gray’s injury and death while in police custody sparked several days of protests and rioting in Baltimore, prompting Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to set a week-long curfew. As a result, the Baltimore Orioles were forced to postpone two home games against the Chicago White Sox, and played a third on April 29 in an empty stadium, unprecedented in Major League Baseball.


Six Baltimore police officers, including three who are black, where charged with Gray’s death. None were convicted Shaq Thompson Jersey , and the Justice Department subsequently decided not to bring charges against them.


TERENCE CRUTCHER


While standing near his car in the middle of a street in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Sept. 16, 2016, 40-year-old Terence Crutcher was fatally shot by police officer Betty Shelby, who is white. The shooting was captured on video from several angles.


The killing touched off protests in Tulsa and led the Tulsa County district attorney to charge Shelby with first-degree manslaughter on Sept. 22.


Earlier this year, on May 17 James Bradberry Jersey , a jury acquitted Shelby of the charge. Shelby, who had been placed on administrative duty since the shooting, resigned from the Tulsa police force on July 14.


KEITH LAMONT SCOTT


In North Carolina, 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott was shot dead on Sept. 20, 2016 by Charlotte police Officer Brentley Vinson, who is also black. Police said Scott got out of his car carrying a handgun and refused orders to drop it. Scott’s wife, who was present Daeshon Hall Jersey , disputed the account.


The shooting sparked both peaceful protests and violent riots in Charlotte over two nights, resulting in several injuries and one death.


The district attorney determined on Nov. 30, 2016 that Vinson “acted lawfully,” and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Chief Kerr Putney later ruled that he acted in accordance with department policy. Last month, a civilian review board in the city split evenly over Putney’s decision, the first time in the board’s 20-year history that it did not agree with the chief.


DAMASCUS, March 15 (Xinhua) -- Um Bashir said she had never experienced any worse than the last four years of her 50 years in life after the grinding conflict haunted her and her family Taylor Moton Jersey , down from one place to another, leaving her in under-construction building near Damascus with her husband unable to lift a bag due to his spinal disk.


Um Bashir along with her husband and two of their kids are now staying in an unfinished house at the eastern outskirts of Damascus after having to move three times from rebel-held areas during the four-year-old crisis, now entering its fifth year with no concrete solution insight.


Wearing a shabby black loose-fitting gown and gray headscarf, the war-weary woman and her husband sat in a gray-walled room on a thin rug, whose dusty color mingled with that of the unfinished flooring, adding to the gloomy atmosphere of that place.


"The crisis has stripped me of every beautiful memory I have ever had. I had a big house in Ghouta of four rooms and big saloon but now look at this," she said Curtis Samuel Jersey , her voice shaking, recounting how she and her husband were nearly hit when a wall in her current dwelling collapsed when a mortar shell hit the upper part of it a couple of days ago.


The woman was turning her face sideways with every question about her feelings as if she was trying to bury her feelings and vulnerability deep inside of her.


"I have two sons in the military service and two brothers which I had lost during this crisis when they ventured out to bring some food in our rebel-held neighborhood in Ghouta," she continued, throwing an arm to hide her face when tears started to spill down her cheeks before dashing them away.


"I have lost everything, I lost my house in Ghouta and lost my stuff and when I moved to Hama province the war haunted me down to that plac.
