Chaos in Ferguson, Missouri
»» MORE: WHAT THE GRAND JURY HEARD
The public has never heard Officer Darren Wilson’s account of his shooting of Michael Brown. That account emerges from an interview with investigators the on Aug. 10, the day after the shooting. It was among the trove of documents authorities released after the St.Louis County grand jury declined to indict Wilson.
Black Americans tend to believe that what happened to Michael Brown could happen to them. White Americans tend to believe that the decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson showed the system is working. St. Louis County officials may have waited until late Monday night to announce that Wilson would not be charged, but many Americans had long since made up their minds.
