Rick Canamore who has been a very active in the protest in Ferguson is one who has no faith in the system and feels Darren Wilson will not be indicted.

“Even if the officer is indicted, protest and demands for justice, must continue,” Canamore, of nearby Normandy, where Brown attended high school tells CNN. “The area’s working-class African-American are tired of being hassled by police over things residents of more affluent areas don’t have to contend with.”

St. Louis County Prosecutors office has confirmed that the grand duty has official made their decision and have been released and set home. An official announcement of the grand jury’s decision will be made public later today, the prosecutor’s office also says in the statement.

Brown’s family has not been notified of the grand jury’s decision, family attorney Benjamin Crump told CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin.

“He says the family is very upset, they are distraught that no one from the prosecutor’s office has reached out to them,” Hostin said.

President Obama is urging people to “Keep protest peaceful and in perspective,” in a statement from the White House. citing the words of Michael brown’s parents, “The best way to honor Brown is to keep protest peaceful.”
