Early Tuesday morning, a few hours after a Missouri grand jury had returned no indictment in the killing of Ferguson teenager Michael Brown, several hundred protesters occupied the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court. They held the area as a ring of security guards and police officers watched; they chanted "Hands up, don't shoot!" as stragglers, largely black but increasingly diverse, arrived to fill out the scene.
