Darren Wilson Will NOT Be IndictedPosted by Athena Keener on November 24, 2014
The Grand Jury responsible for deliberating whether or not Officer Darren Wilson will be indicted for the shooting that killed Michael Brown has reached a decision after 108 days. Robert McCulloch, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney, gave a press conference in Clayton, Mo. He says that some statements were completely refuted by the evidence. McCulloch said that all twelve jurors heard every word spoken in testimony, and they are the only people who have heard and examined every witness and every piece of physical evidence. He declared,
The jury deliberated over two days making their final decision. They determined that no probable cause exists to file any charge against officer Wilson. And returned a no true bill on each of the five indictments.
This has been one of the most anticipated legal decisions in recent years. The nation waits on edge for the fallout promised by the ‘peaceful’ protesters. What will the next few days look like for Ferguson, Mo? One thing is sure, the police officers of Ferguson and St. Louis County will be kept busy. Many schools have cancelled for the week, and businesses have closed early out of fear.
