BOSTON (CBS) — Dozens of demonstrators took to the streets Saturday for another day of protests, this time through the streets of downtown Boston.
Saturday’s crowd was much smaller compared to previous days’ protests, but their voices are strong and their message was simple.
“Now is the time and enough is enough,” protester Roxkna Rivera said.
Many protesters told WBZ-TV’s Paul Burton they want justice in the wake of grand jury decisions not to indict two white police officers for the deaths of unarmed black men in Missouri and New York.
“Folks should not be treated differently because the color of their skin,” Rivera said.
Saturday morning in Roxbury, Mayor Marty Walsh took part in a My Brother’s Keeper rally at the Timilty School.
The mayor says for the most part he’s pleased with the way protest have been taking place in the city.
“It’s free speech and we can’t stop people…

WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH)– Some children in Waterbury celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with more than family, turkey and football games. They each got a big surprise when they went to school last week… a brand new pair of sneakers!
There’s something special about slipping on a new pair of shoes. At the Children’s Community School in Waterbury, volunteers from Davita Dialysis came with their arms filled with boxes and boxes of sneakers.
“We’re told there are kids that don’t go to school some days because they may not have the right pair of sneakers,” said Dora Harris, Davita Dialysis.
There were kicks of every size, color and style.
“I am so thankful for these shoes,” said Paris, a student.
And students like Paris just couldn’t hold-back the excitement of it all.
“They keep me nice and safe and I really like them a lot, the color on them,”…

Today Amazon announced the track list to J Cole’s 3rd studio album Forest Hills Drive. J Cole didn’t even get to announce it to his fans, Amazon put up the the track list along with a pre order page. From the looks of the track list, he has zero credited features. That’s not typical in the rap game right now, but highly respected. I’m sure I’m not the only one that can’t wait for its release.

MILWAUKEE (PIX11/WITI) - The list of rap legends who died before their time is a long one — but it doesn’t include Milwaukee-based “Jakitdown” who claimed have died in a car accident to avoid child support payments, prosecutors say.
Jakitdown, whose name is actually John McCroy, has been called out by real stars Tyrese and P. Diddy for abandoning his children while boasting about cars and money, according to FOX6.
While some might be embarrassed by the critical memes, comments and tweets, McCroy is trying to leverage whatever attention he’s getting into hip-hop stardom, according to the station.[pullquote align=”right”]”Stacks and stacks of money, all this jewelry, the cars. I was just like ‘Wow, really?'”[/pullquote]
McCroy, who faces five felony charges of failure to pay child support, was apparently involved in a car crash in 2009 — an accident that he still claims killed him.
He recently told FOX6 he hasn’t made any payments because “I was ineligible to pay…

A 12-year-old boy has been shot dead by police in the US city of Cleveland, after carrying what turned out to be a replica gun in a playground.
Police say an officer fired two shots at the boy after he failed to obey an order to raise his hands.
A caller reported the boy to police for scaring people with a gun but said that he did not know if it was real.
One of the officers was in his first year on the local force, the other had more than 10 years of experience.
The medical examiner for Cuyahoga County identified the boy as Tamir Rice.
The boy was shot on Saturday afternoon and died in hospital early on Sunday morning.
Cleveland deputy police chief Ed Tomba said the boy was…
