The St. Louis County grand jury has until January to make it’s decision whether #OfficerDarrenWilson should stand trial for the shooting of #MikeBrown but the prosecutor’s office says a decision could come in mid-November. The shooting occurred on August 9th and protestors of #Ferguson Missouri still want an indictment. The governor #JayNixon declared a state of emergency on Monday November the 17th 2014 as a precaution in the event of unrest or violence.

The shooting of #MikeBrown has awakened a national nerve. #Protests against #racism and #policebrutality have taken place all around the country since Brown’s death.

Officer Darren Wilson who shot and killed Mike Brown has given his side of the story about what happened more than two months ago in Ferguson, Missouri.
“The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.
The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.”

Chileeeeeeeeeeeee … word on the street is Meek Mill is NOT being granted a hearing for his probation violation and will remain in jail until October. Earlier in the month reports said that Meek Mill had been sentenced to 3-6 months in county jail after a probation violation. Label owner Rick Ross jumped to give a response saying that Meek’s jail time would only be a few weeks but it seems that not even Ross had the final answers about the situation. The rappers legal team had a petition for an emergency court date thinking he would get out of jail as soon as possible. The request was denied. Meek Mill’s legal team says that he as done nothing that could warrant his probation being revoked. Today Meek pleaded for parole from his ongoing sentence but was denied. The judge ordered the rapper to take anger management and parenting classes, then said the earliest he would be released is October 11th. Will you still support Meek Mill and MMG? Will you listen to his new album when it drops? *Rick Ross grunt*
