NO INDICTMENT: #Ferguson Grand Jury Verdict Watch (UPDATES)
The decision has been made: NO INDICTMENT.
Today may be the day you and the rioters have been waiting for.
The Grand Jury reportedly has reached a decision whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown.
But the decision has not yet been announced yet. That is expected to come sometime today.
You can follow the Twitter stream at the bottom of the post. We will embed a live video feed when available.
The announcement could come at any time.

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Let’s hope if he’s not indicted, they release all the evidence… not that facts would stop the rabble rousers.
The Collectivists have already wired around the grand jury. It isn’t about The Gentle Giant(tm). It IS about “change”.
If “all the evidence” includes the names of black witnesses who reportedly testified to some extent supporting Wilson’s story, those lives will be at risk.
So can we assume that Rev’runs Jesse and Al have just bought their tickets to St. Louis?
Dude, you don neeeeed no steeeeeken teeeekits with a corporate jet…!!!
Hey, Rags. You’re up to two stalkers now. I’m impressed.
I’m shooting for FIVE.
Yes! We can! Com’on, kick in trolls…!!!
They’re out in force tonight. Jim Hoft has several over at GWP. He’s wiping them out almost as fast as they post.
gave you one as early Christmas gift, enjoy 🙂
Professor, I know this is off topic, but the twitter feed is killing me.
It jumps evertime new tweets are posted and makes it horribly difficult to follow.
I just heard that the FBI has 100 agents on the spot. Holder must be serious about making sure the police do not use too much force.
No True Bill = Justice
Yay … everyone can go home now.
So, “The System Worked”
They now say announcement sometime after 5pm central time
Well the best crowd control would be to apply a hose mist over all of them in 32F weather. Hard to be a rebel when one is freezing, besides their “doo’s” won’t look cool in the videos
Rebel Without A Coat
Announce on Turkey Day – Blame rioting on Black Friday!
No indictment…. burn a city in protest.
Indictment….. burn a candle in protest.
Different tribes- see Bill Whittle.
Anchovy, you hit the nail on the head.
I am to the point that I just don’t care any more. In another week, month or year there will be another minority ‘victim’ with all the media sluts crying foul.
Nobody doing the rioting will look at the animal that was “put down” like the beasts they’re acting like. It’s ALL about black racism in my opinion. Easier to blame whites and society than to take the blame on themselves. Disobey a cops order and you might get hit with a stick, or shot. What’s so hard to understand about that? ‘Yes, Sir’ and ‘No, Sir’ goes a long way in avoiding these circuses. But…the Gentle Giant (aka the Brown Bunghole) thought he could bully that cop like he bullied the little shop owner. Surprise Thug, that dog won’t hunt!
I just pray it’s not as bad as a Detroit Pistons NBA Finals win. (((shudder))).
Have to give some time for the protesters to assemble, apparently.
Of course. I takes a long time and a lot of planning to have a spontaneous protest.
I’m guessing they’d want to get past school and rush hour.
I wonder if they are just giving it time to get colder.
Call me cynical, but regardless of the verdict, there’s going to be rioting tonight.
If I were boss in Ferguson, I’d pull the worst child raper in the whole prison system, dress him up like a cop, make the long-awaited grand announcement that, not only have they indicted ‘Wilson’, they done tried and convicted his honky ass too! Then you turn around, pull your piece, and execute the child raper in the cop suit. Everybody’s happy except some child raper.
It’s all about PR in the Obama era.
“I’d buy that for a dollar!”
No offense to the Prof., but anybody heard from Andrew? I figured he would be all over this one.
They’re keeping him at bay. Every time he’s around, somebody gets shot.
Your saying he is kind of like “The Observers” in the TV show Fringe, just with more hair, lol.
He’s probably busy poring through the evidence, preparing a real humdinger analysis for the blog.
He’ll surface. He can’t help himself, :), and it’s to our benefit.
I anxiously await his insight, observations, and explanations.
Let’s just be honest: There is going to be a no bill announced tonight. The decision has been known for almost all of the day. If an indictment was going to be handed down, this would be announced before 5pm local time, and Wilson would be in custody already.
I’d wager they’re waiting so people can shutter their business, make it home, batten down the hatches and lock and load. No one wants a repeat of Florence and Normandie.

Current temp in Saint Louis is 41°, headed for a low tonight of 23°. It’s going to be cold, especially if you’re wet.

Thanks for the PD link. They are, of course, very professional in the midst of mayhem. Thanks Obama! Thanks commies!
They’re waiting till 9 pm so it can be on prime time news coast to coast, like the NFL does Monday Night Football.
Whatever happens happens, but the left will see it one way and the right will see it another. There’ll be so much spinning going on that broadcast centers like NY and LA will be destroyed in the twisting turning maelstrom of bullshit coming off our screens.
And yes……… exactly where is Mr. Branca? Probably at ground zero in a Gentle Giant costume, rigged with a GoPro, and 3-4 buddies, all of them drunk as a six peck.. uh, drunk as a rabbi with… er, real drunk.
The rule of law is dead.
What kind of protections can we expect from official institutions when our government is so easily intimidated by a mob of looters?
How can they protect law abiding citizens when the same institutions that should protect the laws give legitimacy to criminals and agitators?
How many looters were arrested the first time?
How many received charges for breaking the law(s)?
How many will be arrested/charged this time?
The second amendment does not protect looting!
The second protects AGAINST looting.
What kind of Protection can we get from Government or the People when there is no Drug Prohibition Amendment and so called “constitutionalists” utter nary a peep?
Why should the law mean anything under those circumstances?
The Right is just as complicit as the Left.
Must be the medical-quality stuff. They say it is really strong.
Lisa Fithian is in a warm motel room in the St. Louis area with a map and several cell phones and a few radios.
She’s going to be directing flying squads of thugs in Guy Fawkes masks who are going to be hitting all over the area, orchestrating flash mobs and monitoring police scanners.
She may get out into the night eventually, but she’s still going to be the field marshal tonight.
Gateway Pundit says no indictment
People are tired and cold … a little yelling, then they go home maybe. A few later throw some rocks, a few arrests. The paid agitators might have to do something I guess. Small crowd though, so, throw a bottle, go to jail.
I’m hoping they publicly announce a delay until 11pm CST… and then delay it until 4am 🙂
Ya know. It would go a long way towards quelling this sort of thing if we ended Prohibition and its racist enforcement.
Cannabis cures cancer. Cancer kills 586,000 Americans every year. Every Prohibitionist is complicit in mass murder.
The government has know this since ’74 (look it up). Gerald Ford ordered the evidence destroyed.
MSimon, Cannabis is not a cure to cancer. THC is a useful medicine for treating the side effects of chemotherapy (vomiting, anorexia) and wasting associated with AIDS. It is a prescription medication called Marinol (generic name dronabinol)
No one seeking to make use of the genuine medical uses of cannabis is being denied Marinol. Apparently, you seem blind to the negative effects of smoking any plant matter – even autumn leaves.
Okay, so did the title of this blog entry change? Now it says,
“NO INDICTMENT: #Ferguson Grand Jury Verdict Watch (UPDATES)”
This is 9:06 PM EST. We don’t know for sure if there is no indictment.
Thanks for highlighting the fallibility of an assistant editor. This is what happens when Twitter crashes your browser before you can hit save on the version with a “?” attached to the end of the title update 😉
In other words, Twitter just broke the internet.
Well, it worked out right so I suppose no harm was done 🙂
So what you are saying is, “Twitter at my homework!”
I hope they don’t indict this officer.
Good. No Bill on the 5 counts.
Well, that was interesting.
“Sooo……..” – everyone out in the streets tonight
You betcha. Some people need their 60s fix.
Buffalo Springfield – For What It’s Worth 1967
Well. Bless that prosecutor and those jurors.
Thank you. My faith in my people is vindicated.
Bless you Rags, and bless your faith.
I don’t know, don’t know yet.
Nice to have a jury smarter than the Justice Department.
All good, but in a just society this case would never have even made it to the GJ.
Does this mean that Team Crump will be unable to file a civil suit? Is Officer Wilson protected? I would like to see him (Crump) leave with empty pockets.
All you need to file a civil suit is the filing fee, the cost of service on the defendant, and a few hours of drafting.
But I REALLY doubt a civil suit would avail here. Too much evidence to counter any claimed tort by the LEO.
So Missouri doesn’t’ have a law similar to Florida that protects against civil suits if it is ruled self defense?
Hope they brought a few fire trucks and have the hoses ready. If they get out of hand, give em a reason to get someplace warm in a hurry.
All the evidence will be released after the announcement.
But the animals don’t care about evidence.
They already judged.
They want something and they’re out to get it, damn reason and evidence. It’s disgusting.
Heh. Ezra Klein doesn’t like the explanation of the process and summation of the evidence. I am sure that he would have preferred more freedom to misreport.
That’s kid of like Crump being pissed that all of the evidence was presented to the GJ instead of just the evidence that would lead to an indictment.
I think it was Parks on Hannity earlier bitching that McCulloch didn’t go the ham sandwich route. Parks actually said something to the effect that not all the evidence should have been presented.
And they’re all still touting the discredited witnesses who didn’t see diddly squat.
The press is fielding some typically bilious questions. Kudos to McCulloch for handling it well so far.
Anderson Cooper is saying Obama will be making a statement…… good grief, will this donkey ever give it up?
So Obama is going to address the nation at 10:00?
Let’s hope Obama doesn’t behave stupidly for a change.
Yeah, I know….
Maybe, sobered by these events, he’ll take to the microphone to say how proud and grateful he is for our public safety people, and make an impassioned plea for every American to threat themselves and each other with respect and in a manner that shows how thankful they are for the gift of life and living in this amazing nation.
But it is an excellent aspiration for something to hear from a President…
He’s incapable. He WANTS racial animosity to persist, to thrive. There can be no other explanation. Anyone sworn to uphold the laws of our country should have been singing the praises of the grand jury system, and of this particular grand jury for their thoroughness in the face of enormous, thuggish pressure. His remarks were insulting, a slap in the face to 12 ordinary citizens doing right by the facts, 3 of them African American, presuming to know more than they knew. The man is a truly hollow and despicable being, unworthy of the office.
Even my son, who was a fan and voted for him is 2008, just texted me that he now considers BO the worst president in our history. Thought his comments were pathetic.
I am ashamed of POTUS. I don’t get on the news, I don’t write blogs, but still, I am ashamed of him.
“We are a nation built on the rule of law so we have to accept this decision was the grand jury’s to make,” Obama said.
What he was thinking: “Unfortunately, we are a nation built on the rule of law so we have to accept this decision was the grand jury’s to make – for now,” Obama said.
The black member of the press whose question was premised on there not being a single law in the State of Missouri that protected Mike Brown should receive an award for stupidity.
yeah, most of those questions were pretty pathetic … thought those were real reporters.
WTH does he think a three-month GJ investigation was all about? I heard him – complete race-baiting, libtard moron.
obama: being angry about the decision is reasonable (or some similar word)?
I think he just said riots make for good TV too.
Obama was off his TelePrompTer and just rambling.
Obama’s speech in a nutshell – disappointing decision, no violence please, America has made progress, but a bunch of you clowns are still racist, my DoJ will launch programs to train the police to do better.
He said nothing about preventing tragedies like this by not attacking police officers and trying to take their weapons. Nope. Obama says the police need more training.
Unbelievable. Tonight I finally reached that deepest, most visceral hatred for this man.
Who’s there? (this is you)
The IRS !
Everything is political and in Obama’s “God Damn America” Doctrine.
So he has to call for peace, but claims there is good reason to be angry.
As Giuliani said yesterday, why not work on improving their neighborhoods, where 95% of real murders are by other blacks. Obama briefly mentioned police are needed in those poor communities, but he could place none of the blame on the criminals and gangs running those places (where he gets out the vote).
But then he makes heroes out of thugs like Trayvon. Maybe he could mention something about the drug and gang problem.
I’m amazed they’re letting them loot these stores.
Spot on, Henry. Likewise the hatred, too. He hates my family, my country, my Church. One prayer, but no more. What a despicable creep.
Yes, no violence says His Majesty. He and Bill Ayers probably had a good laugh and a line of coke in appreciation of that little gem of hypocrisy.
And did you hear some of those questions reporters were asking the prosecutor? LOL, omg.
There are reports of looting … hard to believe all those cops and Guard can’t stop looting this time. I thought the crowd was smaller this time … but everyone is set for the big “party” I guess.
They’re not looters, they’re “undocumented shoppers.”
No Bill? Whelp, better burn Little Caesar’s to the ground.
There’s gunfire now, and reports that police are finally firing back. Obama, is this what you meant by “staying the course?”
Protestors chanting ‘Black lives matter’ at White House. How many have died in Chicago since Big Mike Brown was shot in Ferguson?
Too damn many. A fairly big number are people unlikely to have done anything gang related. It’s horrendous, and I wish I knew a good way to stop it.
This is all Israel’s fault, isn’t it?
Hey Bamster, you could have called off the dogs if you wanted to. This is on your watch.
There are reports that Nixon is keeping the National Guard out of Ferguson as revenge for Chief Jackson and Wilson not resigning.
If that is the case then it is time to impeach another Nixon.
So many claim they “just want justice.”
What they mean is vigilante justice. Vengeance.
I think it was Steve Harrigan at the Ferguson scene for Fox who said it’s believed there will be some insurance payouts, but he didn’t have the particulars. Those who lost their businesses tonight should not re-open. Pack it in, take whatever money they can get and run without looking back. Let Ferguson do without the little shops and restaurants they destroyed. I saw an Auto Zone engulfed in flames, with the sub-Saharans running gleefully about smashing and looting. They don’t deserve a real town with going enterprises. Let ’em scratch for what they need. One uplifting moment was when some non-violent protestors tried to protect the beauty supply store, but failed.
This is America now, under obola.
Started through the evidence. Interesting to see what AB thinks when he does his normal thorough job. I just looked for the low hanging fruit. So far, it looks fairly clear cut, both self-defense and legal use of deadly force to effect an arrest of a dangerous felon. More really self-defense though. According to Wilson, Brown did a pretty good job of beating him up in the vehicle, and did
(Pardon my posts – LI doesn’t play well with my iPad)
According to Wilson, Brown gave him a pretty good beating in the vehicle. AndWilson had the wounds to show for it. Nothing apparently debilitating though – but they did x-Ray his jaw to make sure it wasn’t broken. All Wilson could think about was surviving. And, w/o a Taser, Mace likely to debilitate himself, and baton behind him, Wilson tried to draw his firearm. Brown grabbed it, and was twisting it to point at Wilson’s leg (or thereabouts). After shooting Brown, Brown ran away, and Wilson exited the vehicle and started after Brown, yelling at him. Brown turned around, got a crazy look, and started to charge. Wilson backed up, trying to apparently keep maybe 20 feet between, as he fired in multiple volleys, assessing the results each time, until head shots dropped Brown.
Firearm was a Sig Saur .40 S&W, shooting JHP. Wilson started with a whole magazine (12?) plus one in the chamber, and ended up with one round left. Maybe half hit Brown. Pretty scary that it took probably a half dozen probably 180-185 grain .40 S&W JHP rounds to stop Brown. My understanding was that some LEOs went to the .40 from the 9mm for more stopping power. Hard to believe that the only thing in Brown’s system was a lot of pot.
Just saw Darren Wilson’s hospital photos & medical report. Umm…
A lot of excitable Righties really blew it on that one. Kind of embarrassing, no? Don’t get me wrong, I believe in the Grand Jury system and I believe that in this case justice was served. It’s just that maybe there’s a teachable moment here for people prone to falling for any rumor or fake picture which seems to confirm their “side’s” position.
PS: I agree with the poster above, commenting here with an iPad is a real bear. One reason I don’t comment much anymore (I do still read & enjoy the posts though!). Prof Jacobson, if you or someone on your tech team have an iPad, try logging into this post (posts with lots of embeds seem especially problematic) and leaving a comment, also try pasting a link. I usually use Safari, but would be willing to try another browser if someone can vouch for it being more compatible with this site.
If what I heard and saw Monday evening was representative of the whole man, I’d like to see DA McCullough run for the US House.
I think we can say this was his finest hour.
At least so far. If he keeps up like this, he’s gonna prove a pretty fine feller. Especially for a Deemocrat.
