Obama tells Ferguson residents to keep protests peaceful
A grand jury in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson is looking at the racially charged shooting, in which Officer Darren Wilson shot unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown. "No matter what the grand jury decides, I don't want my son's death to be in vain." In the United States, grand juries meet in secret to review some cases before deciding whether criminal charges should be brought. The jury could indict Wilson, meaning he could face trial, or determine there is no case for him to answer. Authorities have previously said they expect the grand jury decision any time between mid- to late-November. "The date, time and location hasn't been decided as of yet. The grand jury is still in session." Brown, a high-school graduate planning on attending technical college, was shot at least six times by Wilson. Wilson has reportedly told the grand jury he acted in self-defense after tussling with the youth.
