Counting down to the Ferguson Grand Jury Decision at 9 p.m. - and now we have it. At 9:24 the Prosecutor said the Grand Jury chose not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Unfortunately, this guy is a total idiot, and his "speech" is a joke, so this is not going to end well. I will have Part Two with video up later.
Blame the Victim, Blame the Witnesses, Blame Social Media
Over bullhorn at Ferguson PD: "That's bullshit." Now screaming. Lots of screaming. Glass shatters. Cars honking. Police hanging back.

Is McCulloch suggesting that stealing cigarillos is cause of death?! Or that warring khaki shorts is reason for being shot?! #ferguson

McCulloch: All 12 jurors present for every session, heard every piece of evidence. Were extremely engaged in process #Ferguson

His convoluted nonsense sounds like a long series of drunk tweets read out loud, not a grand jury decision announcement.

Anything short of an indictment of Darren Wilson will be a grave injustice.

If I wanted to turn protests violent, I'd fill the streets with police then announce the decision late at night. Oh, already done… #Ferguson
