    Faith-based demonstrators in Decatur on Dec. 21 protest police killings of unarmed black men and the murders of two New York police officers on Dec. 20. Chanting "Not one more" and "I can't breathe" about 130 members of the faith community in the City of Decatur marched and rallied on Dec. 21 to protest the recent lack of grand jury indictments in the police killings of Eric Garner in New York and Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. The racially diverse column of activists from Oakhurst Presbyterian Church joined members of Oakhurst Baptist Church and the Friends Meeting of Atlanta for a half-mile march down East Lake Drive to Harmony Park at the intersection of East Lake and Oakview Road.
