Monday November 17th, with snow falling in the streets, and the cold of winter nearing, many are concerned with whether or not this little southern town is going to erupt into violence. Those who demand reform in what they see as a racist law enforcement system are planning protests all across the United States. Meanwhile, KluKluxKlan members are promising violence in the streets if Officer Wilson is indicted for murder.
This is really a volatile moment in US history as there seems to be no easy way out. Some are claiming that Missouri law enforcement agencies have recently purchased $24,000 worth of crowd control grenades in case things go badly. Mayor James Knowles, of Ferguson, Missouri did not meet with protestors as planned this morning. Protestors then took to the streets blocking the intersection of Hanley and Forsynth.
