The refrain "hands up, don't shoot" became a rallying cry over police killings nationwide. A look at some of Tuesday's demonstrations: NEW YORK Thousands of people marched for a second night in Manhattan, gathering in Union Square before splitting into several smaller groups, chanting "No justice, No peace." Some held signs saying "Jail killer cops" and "Justice for Mike Brown." One group marched uptown to Times Square, meandering between lanes of traffic as police followed. The protesters, who seemed to grow in number as the night wore on, disrupted traffic on the FDR Drive and congregated at the entrances to the Williamsburg and Manhattan bridges and the Queens Midtown Max Workouts Tunnel.

Fort Smith Students Help Disabled Veteran | Times Record
It was 1966, and the Fort Smith resident was in the U.S. Army when a Punji Stick sliced past the skin and into the muscle of his left leg. Caught off-guard, he was with fellow soldiers searching for Viet Cong gunmen in the Ia Drang Valley when the Punji Stick punctured his skin and muscle. Puinji Sticks were sharpened and hardened bamboos that the Viet Cong used as a trap, said the 74-year-old Pyles. Youd be over there in Vietnam and not know exactly where you were walking, and then you would step into Punji Sticks. Pyles was able to serve in the Army after his injury, although the wound and its aftermath immediately forced him to rely on wheelchairs and canes.
