Ferguson grand jury has reached decision; will announce tonight
The grand jury decision on whether or not to indict the white police officer who shot unarmed teen Michael Brown last summer will be announced Monday evening, CBS News has learned.
Michael Brown Sr., the teen's father, confirmed a decision had been reached to CBS News. However, Brown Sr. said he was not informed of what the decision will be.
The August 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Brown, who was black and unarmed, by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, unleashed a flurry of protests in Ferguson. The initial demonstrations triggered a forceful police response that drew criticism from both local residents and the governor of Missouri....
You know the rest. Now I love how this is phrased, "who was black". It implies he can change the color of his skin. Last time I saw that attempted it didn't come out well for Michael Jackson.
Hey, 870am, try "the unarmed black..." or "the black man who was unarmed..." Just suggesting.
