'Men in suits' rally in L.A. uses silent vigil to protest police actions

Yesterday in downtown Los Angeles, a group of about 50 African American men gathered in front of the federal courthouse for a silent vigil.

They were all dressed in suits and appeared in support of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and other alleged victims of police misconduct.

The demonstration was held at noon and LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas delivered a speech at the event.

"The lives we live, the lives that we lead, cannot be, should not be devalued," said Ridley-Thomas. "And the 'we' is larger than Michael Brown, Eric Garner, but is most assuredly inclusive of them."
