Gary and Roxann Tackett like to eat at the Cracker Barrel in Branson, Missouri, where they regularly see waitress Cindi Grady.

Eventually, Gary and Roxann caught on that Cindi's car was in serious need of repair.

It was so destroyed from several deer collisions (oh no!) the couple initially thought the car was abandoned. The hood was strapped down and a window was missing.

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.

Deadly storms rolled through the Great Plains and Southern U.S. over the weekend, leaving a path of destruction in their wake.

Violent hail and multiple tornados touched down in parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri. The death toll tragically has climbed to 18 this morning.

16 of those deaths occurred in the suburbs of Little Rock, an Arkansas official confirmed. The twister carved an 80-mile path of destruction just north of the state’s capital. One person died in Oklahoma and another in Keokuk County, Iowa.

One tornado that hit Arkansas destroyed a brand new, $14 million school that was set to open this fall. Now, there is nothing left but debris.
