Grand Jury reaches decision in whether to Indict Darren Wilson -Announcement Soon





If there is not an indictment..Rally will be held in New York at Union Square tomorrow.




FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — A grand jury has reached a decision about whether to indict a Ferguson police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown, a lawyer for Brown's family said Monday.
The panel has been considering charges against Darren Wilson, the white suburban St. Louis officer who fatally shot the black 18-year-old after a confrontation in August.

The St. Louis County prosecutor's office has told the family the decision will be announced after 5 p.m., attorney Benjamin Crump told The Associated Press.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon was traveling to St. Louis from the Capitol on Monday afternoon, spokesman Scott Holste told the AP, but did not say why.

Speculation about the timing of an announcement swirled and largely peaceful protests took place during the weekend after the grand jury met Friday but apparently did not reach a decision.

Reggie Cunningham was among Sunday night's protesters. He said he doubted Wilson would be indicted and felt like authorities were delaying an announcement "to spin this in the most positive way possible."
"The more that they drag this out, the angrier people are going to be," said Cunningham, 30, of St. Louis. The shooting triggered riots and looting during the summer, and police responded with armored vehicles and tear gas.
