The Grand Jury results should be announced within the next twenty-five minutes. My understanding is it will happen at 9 pm EST. Because that’s a great time to give an announcement. It gives all the nut jobs time to prepare and act in the cloak of darkness. Anonymous is already on the ground and tweeting about the KKK being on the ground in Ferguson. Ben Crump has been saying all day that the family has been disrespected which makes “the killing of their unarmed child” even more egregious. FBI and National Guard has been called in to Missouri. State Patrols have been activated in many states and are in major cities. Peaceful protests are scheduled in major cities for tomorrow. We have threats to the state capitol and “protests” planned for Underground Atlanta tomorrow night.
For those unfamiliar Underground Atlanta is a social area where people go to restaurants and bars and where there is a very lenient open container law and people are allowed to go from bar to bar with drinks. I haven’t been there in ages, but the last time was for a drag show. There used to be and still may be a Fat Tuesdays with 180 proof drinks and yes a portion of it is underground. It’s a great place for a peaceful protest! Locals very rarely go there it is a tourist trap near the intersection of two major MARTA lines.
It’s all but certain there will be a verdict of NO BILL. Don Lemon is just saying that is the case. But, Don Lemon.
I will be watching for the verdict so Vanderpump Rules is going to have to wait until tomorrow. Sorry.
As always, commenting rules are relaxed for major legitimate news stories. Please try to be MORE respectful than we usually are. We have many, many commenters with LEO on patrol putting their lives in danger tonight and also appreciate those who have very legitimate concerns about racism in government. We are actually pretty good at respecting each other in times of crisis. I appreciate your restraint and ability to have intelligent discourse.
So far a filmmaker and his son have been removed from the Ferguson protest site for their protection as there was a false rumor they were there with “the Klan.”
And so it begins. Thought and prayers to all.
