Ferguson, Missouri Riot Potential

The potential for riots in Ferguson, Missouri (a suburb of St. Louis) are substantial. The jury has decided on a verdict  in the Darren Wilson case and will be announcing it at 9 PM EST. With tensions running high, the decision has potential to throw St. Louis into disarray. Los Angeles police forces are on a high state of readiness with the anticipation of the court verdict, while the current news headlines coming from Cleveland, Ohio surround the murder of 12 year-old Tamir Rice indicate that passions are running high through the rest of the United States.

The late announcement seems as if the court is attempting to wait until protesters are in their houses and most individuals that would be active and outside are preparing for bed.
