Angry protesters disrupted a local government gathering of Ferguson authorities, shouting for justice for fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown — the second time St. Louis residents have staged such an outburst at an official meeting in a week’s time.

Protesters erupted at Ferguson City Council’s first meeting since Brown’s death just a week ago, But the same tone took over Tuesday’s meeting of St. Louis County Council members, with crowd members banding together and shouting, “For all — justice for all,” and emphasizing the “for all,” CBS News reported.

“It’s no more business as usual,” said one activist, who addressed the seven-member council while displaying a noose around his neck, CBS News said.

Protesters are still demanding that the officer who shot Brown, Darren Wilson, be arrested. They vowed Tuesday evening to vote out the county prosecutor in charge of investigating the shooting, and also warned that other members of local governing boards would be booted at the polls, CBS News said.
