    There really doesn't appear to be anything new in the Anonymous tweets. First, if the account in The Washington Post is accurate regarding the forensic evidence, there would likely be legitimate grounds for the police office to have acted in self-defense (actual and/or perceived threat of imminent risk to the officer's life or of serious harm). Given the selective nature of the leaks and earlier conflicts in witness statements, some degree of uncertainty exists, but it probably is more likely than not that the police officer will not be indicted. Second, the newspaper story cited also mentioned that the Grand Jury's verdict was to be expected sometime "next month" (November), so again the expected timing isn't really new. What about after November 4? November 1 and 2 fall on the weekend, so no Grand Jury decision is likely then. That leaves 28 days for November and 26 (93%) fall after November 4. Therefore, there is a very high probability that the decision would be released after November 4. In sum, there doesn't appear to be anything really new or significant in the tweets that had not been expected prior to the tweets. If anything, the tweets seem to reflect prevailing expectations given the recently leaked evidence and the probability regarding the timing of the Grand Jury's decision.

    Yea, that is the really irritating part.

    Surely they will 'riot for justice', which just drips self-centered hypocrisy.

    At that point, I doubt that they will garner any sympathy - certainly not from me.

    If Wilson acted lawfully in defending himself, then he has done nothing wrong.

    Sadly, he will probably have to sell his house and move elsewhere.

    Right, if. That's the key word in that sentence.

    But the businesses surrounding the area being told to prepare for larger riots and the police and jails in the area stocking up on riot control supplies and even the schools asking them not to announce the GJ decision until after school is out... It seems likely to be true and based on good information.

    Darren Wilson source claims he will NOT be indicted for Michael Brown shooting | Daily Mail Online
    I hate cops, yet Wilsons claims are legit.

    Brown was shot in the hand at close range as Wilson clearly stated Brown punched him in the face and grabbed his gun..

    Sorry but I have absolutely ZERO sympathy for a kid punching a cop in the face for no reason then running away after he's shot in the hand trying to grab an officers gun.

    What was Wilson supposed to do just let him run away after he already ripped off a store, assaulted an officer and ended up getting shot in the hand.

    Remember when "those people" rioted after the Zimmerman verdict?

    I don't either.

    Sometimes, it's like some of you WANT riots.

    Get the Army National Guard ready, march in with armored vehicles and heavily armed soldiers. Make an announcement that any criminal activity will be dealt with decisively. There has to be an overwhelming show of force.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    No, let them destroy their own community while crying how oppressed they are.

    They obviously don't value any of it if they're willing to destroy it..... Who can value anything anyways if you live for free?

    22 years ago. In the biggest miscarriage of justice in my memory.

    You want riots. You want unrest. So you can self-backpat and claim you were right about "those people."
