The wait goes on in the U.S. state of Missouri. A citizen panel considering evidence in the city of Ferguson will not meet again until Monday. The panel is trying to decide whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson for killing unarmed teen Michael Brown back in August. Ferguson saw days of rioting following Brown’s death.
An announcement of a grand jury decision could be made at the Justice Center in Clayton, Missouri once jurors complete their work. The uncertainty of a possible indictment of Officer Darren Wilson is weighing heavily on many residents of Ferguson.
Meantime, protesters have taken to the streets of Ferguson over the past several nights.
On Saturday evening, a group marched from the exact spot that Michael Brown was shot and killed to the street where much of the looting took place in August. Others gathered at the Ferguson Police Department where there were several arrests. One group, the Disciples of Justice, said it’s closely watching how police and protesters interact, and members will be on the scene if large demonstrations occur.
“My message to the community is stay peaceful. Another message also is don’t give up, because things are changing. The world is watching. The whole world is focusing on Ferguson,” said a local resident.
