Ferguson Verdict Reached: Officer Darren Wilson Not Indicted In Death Of Michael Brown; Rioting, Looting Ensues

| Filed under: Legal MattersViral: News

Michael Brown

After more than 100 days of protests, a federal grand jury has determined Darren Wilson's fate.

18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by the Ferguson police officer during an altercation on August 9. Police claim that Brown reached for Wilson's weapon, while Brown's family and several witnesses claim Wilson shot Brown while he was raising his hands to surrender.

The grand jury — consisting of nine white jurors and three black jurors — decided by majority NOT to indict Officer Wilson after deliberating for two days. The jury could have charged Wilson with first degree murder, second degree murder, manslaughter, or involuntary manslaughter.

After being informed of the decision by authorities, Brown's family attorney Benjamin Crump released the news shortly before the official announcement:

"The jury was not inclined to indict on any charges.”

At 9:22 p.m. ET, county prosecutor Robert McCulloch confirmed the verdict in a televised press conference:

"No probable cause existed to charge Officer Wilson."

In a statement, Brown's family said they were "profoundly disappointed" by the decision but asked for peaceful protest. Unfortunately, that did not happen.

la area dog shelter helps dog makeover too cute

No those aren't tears in our eyes! Those are tears in YOUR eyes.

A pup named Charlie in the Los Angeles area was rescued on the side of the road and his fur was matted and had painful burrs sunk deep into his skin.

Being a rescue, his appearance was only working against him and unfortunately the shelter he was rescued at was a high-kill one, which means his odds were not good.
