FERGUSON, Mo. – All eyes continue to be on Ferguson, Missouri, where the protesters and police are waiting to what the St. Louis County grand jury decided about local police officer Darren Wilson who killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown in August.

The grand jury could indict Wilson on a range of charges from first-degree murder, second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, or involuntary manslaughter.

Or, the grand jurors could vote not to return an indictment, believing that officer Wilson’s actions were in self-defense.

Meantime, a federal grand jury has indicted two alleged members of the St. Louis New Black Panthers on weapons charges.

Court documents say Brandon Baldwin and Olajuwan Davis gave false information when buying guns at a store in Hazelwood, MO.

Sources say the men also had explosives and meant to use them on police. But the indictment doesn’t say if they intended to use them as part of the protests.

And apparently true love trumps anxiety.

Published reports say Wilson and Ferguson cop Barbara Spradling got hitched last month. Maybe the know something others don’t. Regardless, everyone will know soon, one way or the other about whether the Thanksgiving weekend will be filled with turkey and stuffing or riots and tear gas.

A press conference has been announced for 3pm CST to give an idea of when actual decision will be handed down.
