    CNN is reporting that it's virtually certain that Darren Wilson will not be indicted since he has still not been asked to turn himself in.

    The New York Times currently has ten reporters in Ferguson, and has compiled a Twitter list of them:

    There are lots of people streaming live from Ferguson tonight. Here's a way to find out who's streaming at a given time:

    Here's the biggest Ferguson Twitter list I know of:

    With all due respect, we're gonna find out in a few minutes, and CNN is only speculating. They have no idea where DW is, or what the decision is. Let's stop with the speculation, and work now to help these people on the ground stay safe tonight PLEASE - regardless of the decision. <3

    I'm sticking with the streamers who've been on the ground since the beginning, but thanks for the additional list.

    After a long discourse on the thoroughness of the investigation and the lack of credibility of some of the eye witnesses to the shooting, it has been officially announced that Darren Wilson acted in self-defense and that there was no probable cause for him to be indicted.

    There are currently more than 21,000 viewing this live stream:

    Looks like someone stole his phone.

    /edit: From what I saw of the feed, the locals tried to keep things peaceful and were calling out agitators early in the event.

    Live Updates: Police and Protesters Clash in Ferguson After Grand Jury Decides Not to Indict in Killing of Michael Brown

    By The New York Times

    Here are a couple of excerpts:

    11:33 P.M. Transcripts of the Grand Jury Proceedings

    Here is a link to the transcript of the documents and evidence presented to the grand jury in Clayton, Mo., that was deciding whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting on August 9 of Michael Brown.

    The documents were released by the St. Louis County prosecutor, Robert P. McCulloch.

    (On my computer, the PDF file for the testimony is 28.6 megs and 4,799 pages.)

    11:07 P.M. Attorney General Reacts to Grand Jury Decision

    United States Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. issued a statement after the grand jury’s decision:

    “While the grand jury proceeding in St. Louis County has concluded, the Justice Department’s investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown remains ongoing. Though we have shared information with local prosecutors during the course of our investigation, the federal inquiry has been independent of the local one from the start, and remains so now. Even at this mature stage of the investigation, we have avoided prejudging any of the evidence. And although federal civil rights law imposes a high legal bar in these types of cases, we have resisted forming premature conclusions.

    “Michael Brown’s death was a tragedy. This incident has sparked a national conversation about the need to ensure confidence between law enforcement and the communities they protect and serve. While constructive efforts are underway in Ferguson and communities nationwide, far more must be done to create enduring trust. The department will continue to work with law enforcement, civil rights, faith and community leaders across the country to foster effective relationships between law enforcement and the communities they serve and to improve fairness in the criminal justice system overall. In addition, the department continues to investigate allegations of unconstitutional policing patterns or practices by the Ferguson Police Department.

    “Though there will be disagreement with the grand jury’s decision not to indict, this feeling should not lead to violence. Those who decide to participate in demonstrations should remember the wishes of Michael Brown’s parents, who have asked that remembrances of their son be conducted peacefully. It does not honor his memory to engage in violence or looting. In the coming days, it will likewise be important for local law enforcement authorities to respect the rights of demonstrators, and de-escalate tensions by avoiding excessive displays — and uses — of force.”

    There were smoke bombs, tear gas and random gunshots. But in Ferguson, the aftermath of the shooting death of Michael Brown was almost as bitter and hollow as his killing itself.
    Brien Redmon, 31, stood in the cold watching a burning police car and sporadic looting after the announcement that there would be no indictments for Mr. Brown’s death at 18.
    “This is not about vandalizing,” he said. “This is about fighting a police organization that doesn’t care about the lives they serve.”
    Thomas Perry, 30, saw roughly the same thing. “I support my people who are out there doing it,” he said. “For years they’ve been taking from us. We don’t care.”

    Someone held a protest sign made out of a Cheerios box. The pungent scent of marijuana filled the air at one point. A few parents brought their children. One protester hurried through the crowd, saying into a walkie-talkie, “What’s your location?” A young African-American man — in one of the ghoulish Guy Fawkes masks that have become a staple of the protests — was approached and asked what he hoped to accomplish. He said nothing, shrugged and walked away.

    Shortly after 5:30 p.m., a few protesters walked across the street and began shaking the metal barricades that blocked the entrance to the police station’s parking lot. One of them wore a Guy Fawkes mask. Another wore a bandanna across his face. They pushed and pulled the barricades until several sections came unlocked. One of the protesters stretched his arms in the victory pose: The barricade was down, and the protesters across the street cheered.

    St. Louis prosecutor McCulloch roasted online for indicting everybody but Darren Wilson

    St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch (D) was criticized as much on Monday night for the decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson as for his 20-minute statement leading up to it.

    Instead of immediately announcing that Wilson would not be prosecuted for shooting and killing 18-year-old Michael Brown this past August, McCulloch opened by blaming social media and the media in general for supposedly pushing a distorted narrative of the shooting.

    The Huffington Post called McCulloch’s statement “bizarre,” while CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin described it as an “extended whine” that was “completely inappropriate.”

    Five Thirty Eight reported that the grand jury’s decision was a statistical rarity; out of 162,000 federal cases in 2010, grand juries opted not to indict in just 11 instances.

    McCulloch was also blasted online even before he finished his remarks:
