Was a Ferguson Grand Jury the Best Option?

As businesses in Ferguson, Missouri, and police around the country brace for the grand jury decision on whether or not to indict the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown, experts told NBC News that the legal proceedings could have taken place a different way. Robert McCulloch, the prosecuting attorney, could have made the decision to charge Officer Darren Wilson himself. However, McCulloch decided to present the case to a grand jury, and ordered that proceedings be recorded and made public if Wilson was not indicted. But it was announced Sunday that a judge would need to review the evidence that was presented before deciding what portions would be released. A legal expert said the uncertainty that comes with having a grand jury may bring “allegations of conspiracy between the police department and the prosecutor.” The jury has not yet decided whether or not to indict Wilson and are planning to reconvene on Monday, sources told NBC News.

"A Reason to Run": For 2 Men, the Road Leads to Ferguson

Two men ran from Atlanta to Ferguson, Missouri to pay tribute to Michael Brown and call for justice, NBC News reported. Londrelle Hall and Ray Mills, who don't consider themselves runners, trained for a few weeks before embarking on a 20-day journey that took them through five states in rain, sleet, hail and snow. Their destination was the Michael Brown memorial in Ferguson where the teen was shot. "I had a reason to run, not to run from my problems, but to run towards a problem and run for the problems of the world and the problems of America and what's going on now." Hall said. A grand jury's decision on whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Brown in August, could come this week. Read »
