Just a quick note. Just want to wish all to stay calm tonight as the Ferguson decision is announced.
Grand Jury does not indict @ 8:25pm
Here are some notes from the county attorney’s press conference:
Michael Brown stole cigars, police called by store owner. Officer Wilson encountered Brown in middle of street and pursued he and a companion.
Brown’s blood was in the police car and on Wilson’s weapon. There was a shot taken inside the car and Brown’s thumb was injured in this gunshot. The bullet was found lodged in the car door.
All three autopsies largely agree with each other.
Wilson had swelling to his face.
Wilson chased after Brown. Witness says Brown was shot facing Wilson. One witness called the movement of Brown toward Wilson a “full charge.” But witnesses were inconsistent.
The bullet entries were consistent with Brown leaning toward Wilson.
I will link to the a transcript as soon as I can find one.
Have a great night everyone. Stay safe. Let cool heads prevail.
