FERGUSON, MO – Attorney General Eric Holder has boots on the ground in Ferguson, MO.
The AG met with students and community leaders to assure them the Justice Department will do a thorough investigation into the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
The St. Louis County grand jury will be conducting its own investigation, which the county prosecutor says could last until mid-October.
Now it seems that police officer Darren Wilson may have been seriously injured just before the shooting. Reports say he received serious facial injuries, possibly a broken eye socket, during the struggle that led to Brown’s death.
Meantime, law enforcement officers prepare for another night of protests. Tuesday night, police arrested two people in a car and confiscated two loaded handguns after receiving reports someone in the car was going to kill some cops.
In all, police busted 47 people, including one man from Austin, for the third time.
Missouri state highway patrol captain Ron Johnson said officers are making small steps in returning order to Ferguson.
It won’t matter if the police take big steps or small, at least not until protesters, and agitators, take a step back and not make a bad situation worse.
