Hands up, don’t shoot

“I took this picture the day after the violent protest turned into riots in Ferguson, Missouri. The police were trying to disperse a crowd and warning they would arrest anyone gathering on the street. This woman held her hands up and moved into the middle of the street and was detained. I think it is a strong picture because of her emotion and the iconic gesture of the raised hands contrasted with the police lights.” — Jewel Samad
