Why isn't the KKK considered a terrorist group?
I don't know. They should be, along with a number of other homegrown terrorist groups active in this country. But since they're not brown and/or don't read the Koran, they're wayyyy down the list...

Anonymous seems to be working to reform the image of the KKK in America, though - look - a unicorn! LOL

Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed teenager Michael Brown on August 9, is in the final stages of negotiations with city officials to resign, according to people close to the talks.

Wilson maintains he hasn't done anything wrong, and the resignation talks have hinged on whether a grand jury returns an indictment against him in the death of Brown, people close to the talks said.

A credentialed member of the media was arrested in Ferguson around 11:40 pm Saturday night. The arrest appeared to violate a court order issued Friday prohibiting the police from arresting law-abiding journalists.

The Grand Jury announcement could be as early as 5pm central (about 10 minutes from now), but there are other reports that the governor's press conference is pushed to 7pm central.

edit...announcement now scheduled for 8pm... /edit

If the officer was going to be charged, there'd be no reason for the governor to declare a state of emergency...if I lived there I'd have a gas mask and a fire extinguisher handy... :(

I have no more words or tears.

Bring on the DOJ decision, and may the civil rights trial get started as close to 'immediately' as humanly possible.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE NATIONAL BAR ASSOCIATION RESPONDS TO THE GRAND JURY’S DECISION NOT TO INDICT POLICE OFFICER DARREN WILSON IN THE SHOOTING DEATH OF MICHAEL BROWN

WASHINGTON, DC – The National Bar Association is questioning how the Grand Jury, considering the evidence before them, could reach the conclusion that Darren Wilson should not be indicted and tried for the shooting death of Michael Brown. National Bar Association President Pamela J. Meanes expresses her sincere disappointment with the outcome of the Grand Jury’s decision but has made it abundantly clear that the National Bar Association stands firm and will be calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to pursue federal charges against officer Darren Wilson. “We will not rest until Michael Brown and his family has justice” states Pamela Meanes, President of the National Bar Association.

President Meanes is requesting that the citizens of Ferguson, Missouri not allow this decision to cause an unnecessary uproar in the community that could lead to arrests, injuries or even deaths of innocent people. “I am asking for everyone to remain as calm as possible and to join in solidarity as we continue to support the family of Michael Brown and put our legal plan into full effect” says President Meanes “I feel the magnitude of the grand jury’s ruling as Ferguson, Missouri is only minutes from where I reside”, adds President Meanes.

Over the last couple of months, the National Bar Association has hosted Town Hall meetings informing attendees of their Fourth Amendment (Search & Seizure) constitutional rights, whether it is legal to record police activity, and how citizens should behave/respond if and when they interface with police officers. “The death of Michael Brown was the last straw and the catalyst for addressing issues of inequality and racial bias in policing, the justice system, and violence against members of minority communities,” states Pamela Meanes.

The family of Michael Brown requested that District Attorney McCullough step aside and allow a special prosecutor be assigned to the investigation to give the community confidence that the grand jury would conduct a complete and thorough investigation into the tragic shooting death of 18 year old Michael Brown. The grand jury’s decision confirms the fear that many expressed months ago — that a fair and impartial investigation would not happen.

“The National Bar Association is adamant about our desire for transformative justice. While we are disappointed with the grand jury’s ruling, we are promoting peace on every street corner around the world. The only way to foster systemic change is to organize, educate, and mobilize. We are imploring everyone to fight against the injustice in Ferguson, Missouri and throughout the United States by banding together and working within the confines of the law,” states President Meanes.

For complaints related to Ferguson, please contact the FBI 24 Hour Hotline at 314-589-2500.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

There's a large march on the streets of St Louis this morning - young and old, black and white.

As they passed National Guard troops, they were heckled by a 50-ish white man in front of the offices of the local TV station. The man was one of the news anchors at the station. He yelled at the white kids in the march - he said they were 'traitors to their country' because they're marching with those niggers. Welcome the USA in 2014.

In other news, from the police scanner, police are looking for two white suspected KKK members for setting fires in Ferguson Monday night.
