All Documents, Evidence Presented To Grand Jury In Ferguson Shooting Case Released
All evidence heard by a grand jury in the shooting death of Michael Brown has been released in the wake of a decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
St. Louis Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch released the documents late Monday night, including photos of evidence, the scene of the shooting, and the testimony of Darren Wilson as well as the officer's injuries after he shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9.
There are more than 1,000 other legal documents included in the information released just hours after a jury of seven men and five women found 'no probable cause' to indict Darren Wilson in the Ferguson shooting.
For over three months there was much speculation, many eyewitness accounts, a lot of opinions from "experts" in the media—but very little factual information surrounding the incident that took place between Michael Brown and the officer that shot and killed him.
Nevertheless, people took a stance—some choosing to protest peacefully, others with reckless behavior in their community, and most taking to social media to express their opinions.
In the time that transpired between those first images of the shooting scene, to the announcement of the verdict, there has been a divide on site in Ferguson as well as online in our news feeds.
Anyone with a Facebook or a Twitter account can attest.
Now that the facts have been released, many people may still harbor the same feelings and opinions, but now have a more clear understanding of what took place on August 9.
Protesters have taken to the streets in over 90 cities. In Ferguson rioters have set fire to numerous buildings and cars, smashed in windows, and looted local businesses. At the time of this post, there have been approximately 82 arrests, 13 injuries, and no fatalities.
