Brown Prosecutor Says No Charge Decision Until October

First, we have this from a seemingly surprised Associated Press:

Of 163 arrests since shooting, 7 from Ferguson

August 21, 2014

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Police records show that 163 arrests have been made in the Ferguson protest zone since the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, but just seven are residents of the St. Louis suburb…

That means only 4% of those arrested are locals.

St. Louis County spokeswoman Candace Jarrett provided information to The Associated Press on Thursday with the name, address and birth year of each person arrested, and the charges against them. It shows that 128 people have been arrested for failure to disperse, 21 for burglary-related charges, four for assaulting police officers. Others were charged with crimes such as trespassing, peace disturbance and destruction of private property…

To be fair, everyone handles grief a little differently.

Then this, via the Daily Caller:

Anonymous Day Of Rage Over Michael Brown Fizzles Nationwide As Ragers Fail To Materialize

By Eric Owens | August 22, 2014

Thursday’s “National Day Of Rage” planned by the hacktivist group Anonymous against the Aug. 9 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. failed to materialize in any remotely significant way. Anonymous had called for a protest in 37 cities…

The protests were a huge dud. A smattering of dedicated protesters showed up in front of the White House, demanding the arrest of Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot Brown…

Downtown Tampa saw about 30 protesters. Maybe 20 people showed up in Denver. The scenes were about the same in Boston and Baltimore…

“Is nobody else coming to #Oakland #DayOfRage besides the Oakland Police?” asked Twitter user Minister Flashes…

To be fair, all the professional ‘protesters’ in Oakland are in Ferguson.

Even in St. Louis, only about 12 miles from the suburb where Brown was shot, the “Day of Rage” fizzled. “I’m heading out of the park,” declared Twitter user Shay Horse…

Remember those bumper stickers from the ’60s: ‘What if they gave a day of rage and nobody showed up?’

Finally, there is this from Bloomberg:

Ferguson Prosecutor Says No Charge Decision Until October

By Tim Bross | August 20, 2014

The Missouri grand jury that began considering evidence today in the police killing of an unarmed man won’t decide whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson until October “at the earliest,” a spokesman for the local prosecutor said…

Apparently, the Democrats want to save their biggest ‘days of rage’ for right before the midterm elections. To try to increase turnout of their most loyal voters.
