(CNN) – The St. Louis Police Officers' Association was angry after five St. Louis Rams players showed solidarity with Ferguson protesters, walking onto the field Sunday with their hands up, mimicking the 'Hands Up, Don't Shoot' gesture that has become a symbol of nationwide protests.
The association's business manager Jeff Roorda met with Rams executives Monday, saying it was "constructive," but he confirmed officials from the NFL team did not apologize.
(CNN) – President Obama held meetings on the Ferguson fallout Monday, where he weighed in on many controversial subjects including racial profiling and pushing for police to wear body cameras.
Some advocates had a list of demands, including requiring independent investigations into future police shootings, and defunding police departments that use excessive force or racially profile. What did Obama say to those demands?
Ferguson commission member Brittany Packnett, who created an online campaign called 'Don't Shoot,' was one of the select few invited to meet with the President. She shares more of what happened behind those closed doors in the video above.

Business manager for the St. Louis Police Officers' Association and Missouri state representative Jeff Roorda weighs in.
Washington (CNN) - It was 1965 and Ben Carson, an eighth-grade black student in Detroit, was stunned.
Unable to control her anger, his teacher lashed out at white students for failing to outperform Carson, who had just been awarded the class's highest academic achievement. In an interview last week, Carson described the teacher as being from a time when some people thought "how can a black person ever intellectually do better than a white person?"
"To her, it was the most abnormal thing that ever happened in the history of the world," Carson said. "To me, I was determined I would show her."
(CNN) - Al-Shabaab militants raided a quarry in Kenya, separating non-Muslim workers from their Muslim counterparts and executing them, a spokesman for the group said Tuesday.
At least 36 bodies were found Tuesday dumped in the quarry in the village of Kormey, near the Somali border, the Kenyan Red Cross said.
Al-Shabaab said the attack was retaliation for mosque raids that Kenyan security forces carried out last month to weed out extremists.
Kormey is about 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the border city of Mandera, in an area where the Somalia-based Al-Shabaab militants are known to operate.
