I can't help thinking the grand jury members are afraid to make a decision. They must have thought things would die down in time, but that hasn't happened. If anything, things have gotten worse. I don't blame them for dragging their feet. Things could get really bad, really fast, if they don't make a decision they can back up with hard facts one way or another.
The media hasn't helped the situation, as usual. They are obviously hoping for a conflagration. Even Missouri Governor Jay Nixon seems to be nervous, so he has declared a state of emergency. Some think this may signal that he has some advance warning, or it could mean that he feels he has to do all he can to keep the peace.
I expect we will have a decision withing the next few days. All we can do is hope that community leaders,both black and white will be able to keep everyone calm. and hopefully, everyone in that part of the state can move forward, and have something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving day.
