More than 48 hours have elapsed since a Ferguson grand jury decided not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, but protests are still going strong across the country.

Jeezy, who visited Ferguson shortly after the shooting in August, issued a brief statement to MTV News, addressing the emotional events that unfolded this week. His message is as follows:

"Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and Akai Gurley all had their lives and dreams taken by the same people that pledged to uphold the community. This has to stop, may God be with Ferguson, and may our prayers be answered."

“If not us, then who?

If not now, then when?”
