THE BRONX - Protestors rallying in support of slain teen Ramarley Graham marched through the Bronx on Thursday.

The demonstration was prompted when a grand jury ruled not to indict officer Richard Haste, who shot Graham last year. Marchers walked down the Grand Concourse from the Bronx into Harlem, urging independent oversight of the NYPD.

A slew of community members were present at the protest, and echoed the family's calls for justice.

More than 200 people have signed a petition asking the Justice Department to open a federal investigation into the case. Until then, Graham's family vows to continue protesting.
