Police In Ferguson Stock Up On Riot Gear Ahead Of Grand Jury Decision
By Ryan J. Reilly, Huffington Post, October 28, 2014.
WASHINGTON -- The St. Louis County Police Department has stocked up on tear gas, less-lethal ammunition and plastic handcuffs in anticipation of massive protests in the suburb of Ferguson, Missouri, if a grand jury doesn't indict the police officer who killed 18-year-old Michael Brown. The jury is expected to reach its decision sometime in November.
Many protesters in Ferguson do not believe that Officer Darren Wilson will be indicted and contend that recent grand jury leaks are meant to prepare the public for that decision.
“It’s going to be a war because they’re not going to indict him,” one protester told The Huffington Post in October.
