Is Ferguson on the verge of civil unrest followed by martial law? Recent photos and videos from the area paint an ominous picture.
Ferguson, MO — The Grand Jury decision is expected any minute now out of Ferguson in regards to officer Darren Wilson and the killing of Micheal Brown.
It is highly likely that Wilson will not be indicted which could lead to massive unrest in the area.
Looting and violent rioting will only serve to undo the positive attention which Ferguson protesters have received over the past few months. That being said, there will undoubtedly be some people who use this Grand Jury decision as a means to violate the rights of others, both police and citizens.
However, as we have seen before, even when the protest is not-violent, the police frequently are.
This tendency to escalate a peaceful protest into a violent warzone is why the recent news and pictures out of Ferguson are particularly ominous.
