NEW YORK, November 17. /TASS/. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has declared state of emergency ahead of grand jury decision on the fatal shooting of the 18-year-old black teenager Michael Brown. The jury must make a decision on whether to charge police officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown.
It is unclear when the decision will be passed made. Officials and locals have expressed concern that protests could again turn violent if police officer is not charged. Schools will get an advance notice when the grand jury makes a decision on whether to charge Wilson, so students will have an opportunity to go home earlier.
The state of emergency will last for 30 days. This will allow the local authorities to use the National Guard in case of protests.
Dozens of protesters surrounded the court-house. They expressed their indignation at the fact that it has been 100 days since Brown was killed and Wilson is still not charged.
