Howard University students took to the streets to protest the execution of Troy Davis last night. 13 people including a professor were arrested in total.
The students were told to move from the front of the White House to Lafayette Square. They refused to move and were then arrested.
One of the students, Marcus Ware, said they weren’t being rowdy or violent.
“We weren’t being aggressive,” Ware said.
They believed the White House needed to intervene at such a critical stage in the process.
Despite worldwide reaction and protests regarding Davis’ possible innocence of a murder conviction, Davis was still executed at 11:08 p.m. ET on Wednesday night.
