Protesters Move Through the Sloop After No Indictment in Eric Garner Choking Death

Protestors under the Green/Orange Roosevelt CTA stop (via ABC7)
Last week Ferguson protests moved through the Sloop.  Last night protests occurred again due to the no indictment verdict in the choking death of Eric Garner (via ABC7):
The march began shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of State Street and Jackson Avenue. Protestors chanted as they moved orderly down the street, blocking some roads in the process. They were reported headed to Soldier Field where there is a Chicago Bears game Thursday night. 
Earlier, the group marched down State Street and then went east on 11th Street. Chicago police blocked the group from crossing Michigan Avenue. From there, the group marched to the South Loop, gathering at Roosevelt and Wabash and then heading west on Roosevelt. They were blocked from going on to the Dan Ryan Expressway.
