Thundersnow, Anonymous, and the KKK as Grand Jury Decision Looms in Ferguson, Missouri - With Updates

Rumors are flying about when the Grand Jury decision may come down in the Ferguson, Missouri case, and whether there will ever be justice for Mike Brown, slain by cop Darren Wilson for no apparent reason.

After a Saturday of harsh winter weather in St. Louis, including thundersnow - an omen perhaps? - rumors flew that CNN was preparing to hear the decision on Sunday afternoon (today) but that has not been confirmed as of yet. Update: It didn't happen - just a rumor.

Bad Omen?

Today, protestors in Ferguson had a "Die In" on the street.

Last week was quite extraordinary, as Mike Brown's parents flew to Geneva, Switzerland to speak to the UN about their son's death.

Also last week the white mayor of Ferguson showed up in an NRA (National Rifle Association) hat as he spoke to reporters. Messaging?

The Governor of Missouri made a speech, talking about keeping people safe if there are riots after the decision is announced, including calling out the National Guard (again) if need be. Of course he isn't talking about keeping the protestors safe, since they have always been seen as the enemy.

Ferguson Police Chief, Tom Jackson, also had a press conference, saying he would reinstate killer Darren Wilson to his old job on the police force. Needless to say, that did not go over too well with the Ferguson protestors, or anyone with a brain.

Meanwhile, the hate group Ku Klux Klan announced that they were going to protect white people against the Ferguson protestors, which caused the internet group Anonymous to hack their websites and start looking into the identities of KKK members in St. Louis - to "dox" them, and release their Facebook pictures and other information. Some of the Klan members are apparently connected to law enforcement.

Members of a Missouri-based KKK chapter have been distributing fliers in the St. Louis metro area and on social media promising to use "lethal force" against Ferguson protesters they say have threatened police officers and their families.
In the flier, the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan refer to the protesters as "terrorists" masquerading as peaceful, and says that they have "awakened a sleeping giant."
"You have been warned by the Ku Klux Klan!" the flier exclaims. "There will be consequences for your acts of violence against the peaceful, law-abiding citizens of Missouri."
