An attorney for the Michael Brown family has blasted the grand jury process as "unfair," ahead of the Darren Wilson verdict announcement. For three months a St. Louis grand jury of 12 (nine white and three black), has been convening to determine whether or not to indict Wilson, who fatally shot 18-year-old Brown in Ferguson on Aug. 9 and civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump said the entire process has been unfair. Jurors are expected to announce their decision any day now and Crump said the Brown family expects to be notified about the verdict six hours prior to the public. "The process is completely unfair," Crump told ABC News. "I just think this process is unlike anything I've ever seen in my 20 years of practice. We don't think it's fair." St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Robert McCulloch has presented the jury with every shred of evidence, including witness testimony, to assist them in deciding Wilson's fate. "If this prosecutor says ... we're not going to recommend any charges, that's different from anything he's done in his past 28 years with grand juries," Crump continued. "Why can't it be equal justice? Why can't we have the same process?"
These people (that riot) are not fighting for some righteous cause.
not to familer with this source but found it looking for more recent links on Ferguson but if it is true has any thing like this happened before with previous riots(rodney king etc ) as i cant remember any time gun stores have refused to sell legal weapons to those who can own them legally before,did this happen during katrina as well(not as informed on that one) or is it because of the state of emergency declared by Governor
Ferguson, Missouri – This week, a woman who lives in the Ferguson area had a frustrating experience when she attempted to buy a gun. The woman had been trying to buy a gun from a local store, but during the process it seemed as if the store clerk was stalling. Luckily, she was able to take out her cellphone and record the exchange. First, the woman was told that her application was not filled out properly, then when she returned with the specified corrections, she was told that she couldn’t buy a gun at all, because police had instructed owners of gun shops to lock up and ship out all of their weapons, and not sell to any local customers.

And maybe some fine tuning of maps that outline the "free speech" zones are necessary.

It turned into a murder when a law enforcement officer who feared for his own safety exited the safety of his vehicle and chased someone only to shot and kill him.
I think that officer Wilson acted out of anger.
