Many of you know from my post that I live in the St. Louis area. Due to our proximity to the Officer Darren Wilson case I think we may get more information from out local media stations that others outside of the area do not get. I was interested to see what other outside of the St. Louis area believe the results of the grand jury will be and what will be the ramifications of the decision of the grand jury?

SrA Marc Haynes, all I know about it is what I hear in the national news, and I hear that Officer Wilson believes he will not be indicted. Of course his opinion is biased and may be full of hope.

Add to that, however, the deployment of National Guard troops, and I'm thinking there will be no indictment.

Just based on those two "clues," that's my guess. And I guess a middle ground could be what happens as well -- indictment, but for something other than what the protesters want to see. That could explain the National Guard call-up as well.

I commute to work via bus and light rail. I was walking past one of bus stands and an individual loudly states, "if they don't indict that motherf*&$er than this place is gonna burn".

My workplace sent an email prior to the weekend stating the policy of no being in the possession of weapons Z(even in your car on their parking facilities).

I hope they release the finding at 1700 Wednesday night! Weapons sales are good in the StL area so at least that is helping the economy.

I do not know what the jury is seeing or what evidence is out there (besides what is on the news) but, I don't think he will get a serious charge (manslaughter). I don't know that people can look past the video of Brown bullying that store owner and stealing. I think if people want a good example of police abuse of young "men of color" (as stated on the news) then Brown is NOT the example to use.

Apparently you only saw what the pro-Wilson people were 'leaking' . According to the store manger Brown came in as a regular did his thing and walked out. With three people in the store somebody would have done something. Sorry you seemed to have a "bleached" view of the situation. Regardless, even if Brown was attempting to threaten a cop with a gun, and they are saying he had THC in his system, (oooh that makes people all cray-cray) , he didn't deserve to be shot in the face. Also did you also get the updat on Wilson's injuries. Uh yeah, there weren't any. This whole case is pathetic.

I agree there is a lot of BS flying and I do not know what others outside of this region are seeing in regards to this event. They were supposed to come to decision Friday but are meeting again this morning.

I have no problem with groups meeting to peacefully express their rights to freedom of speech. I will not however allow the bad elements involved to intimidate me into altering my behavior (other than buying extra ammunition).

Brown's friend admitted to robbing the store. Have no idea where the other story came from. That video did NOT show Brown walking in and walking out.
