For months now there has been a war raging in Ferguson, Missouri because of a white police officer shooting an unarmed black teenager. Yet the saga of Officer Darren Wilson and Mike Brown has transcended the surface and become something so much more. It has become about race, about Republican and Democrat, and even a generational issue. The news that Darren Wilson will not be charged in the murder of Mike Brown will only make this divide even worse.
Activist group Anonymous revealed that they have inside sources in the Grand Jury and what they found is sure to bring even more of a divide between everyone. Allegedly there will be no consequences for Officer Wilson in this case, "On or about November 10, 2014 the Grand Jury decision will be announced. Darren Wilson will NOT be indicted on ANY charges related to the murder of Mike Brown. All local police Chiefs and jail commanders have been notified to begin preparing for major civil unrest.” The last part of the sentence makes me very uneasy. There's already a lot of violence in the small city.
As always the decision of the Grand Jury raises more questions than it answers. It also leads one to wonder what was behind the decision. Many people are going to claim that this is about race, and there is a slight chance that it was.
