St. Louis, November 24 (RHC)-- Protests continue in the United States as a grand jury nears a decision in the police killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. The grand jury is set to reconvene today as it weighs whether to bring charges against Officer Darren Wilson.
This weekend saw rallies in Ferguson, Missouri and the neighboring community of Shaw amid expectations of an imminent announcement. At least eight schools in the Ferguson area have closed in anticipation.
Wilson, the white police officer, has reportedly been in talks with Ferguson officials on resigning from the police force even if he is not indicted. He has also met privately and off-the-record with a number of prominent news anchors to discuss a potential interview.
The FBI and other federal agencies have sent dozens of agents and officials to Ferguson ahead of the grand jury’s decision. On Sunday, the St. Louis County Circuit Court said there is no guarantee grand jury evidence in the case will be made public after a decision is reached.
