Last evening a grand jury came to the conclusion that Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed teenager Michael Brown, will not face criminal charges.
Vic noted that during the initial unrest, 75% of the the arrests indicated that a majority of the people who came to protest were from outside the Ferguson area. Last evening, however, the majority of the arrests were people from the Ferguson area.
Vic then went on to show how the media has irritated the situation by including key words in their headlines. He specifically read one headline that had inflammatory words related to race and a lack of firearms possession.
Other elements to this story that were mentioned include the response to the decision from Brown’s parents, comments from President Obama and action taken by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.
