Ferguson Awaits Grand Jury Ruling in Michael Brown Shooting

It's coming. Any day now...

The St. Louis County grand jury charged with deciding whether Officer Darren Wilson should stand trial in the shooting of Michael Brown technically has until January to make its decision, but the prosecutor's office has said a decision could come in mid-November.

The ruling will mark the climax in a story that turned Ferguson, Missouri, into a flashpoint of racial tension. Peaceful protests, interspersed with violence and looting at times, became the storyline in the months following the August 9 shooting.

That is predicted to be the case again when the grand jury's decision is announced.

    No matter what, the Grand Jury decides they and the decision they render needs to be respected.
