Get ready social media – Ferguson grand jury decision

By Paul Barney - | Nov 24, 2014

A grand jury has come to a conclusion in the case of a police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teen.  Michael Brown, 18, was shot by officer Darren Wilson back in August. After the initial incident much civil unrest and protest arose. 

On Monday, social media flared up again with plans for demonstration after news of the decision is reported to be made later this evening. Even the ACLU took an opportunity to make sure demonstrators knew their rights on a t-shirt.

Everyone be safe today. Looks like grand jury results will release later & some are ready to do harm regardless of outcome. #Ferguson

Government officials have planned, that if Wilson is not charged, to try to avoid the same protests that broke out when Brown was killed.
