Protests Around The Country
Protesters gathered in many American cities. Those in Los Angeles staged a "die-in" (see the LA Times for pictures), and several were arrested.
Wilson Also Responds
Officer Wilson's lawyers also released a statement in the moments after the announcement — thanking his supporters and reiterating his belief that he acted in accordance with the law and his training. Nowhere in the brief statement did he mention Brown or his family or offer condolences.
At 10 p.m. in Washington, D.C., President Obama made a somber statement addressing the decision not to indict Wilson. He emphasized that legally, the decision was the grand jury's to make. Acknowledging that many would be angry, he urged that "anyone who protests this decision do so peacefully," before quoting Brown's father.
Wilson's testimony — in which he describes his reasoning for shooting Brown — was also released. The Washington Post has a detailed recap.
The Grand Jury Docs
Monday, St. Louis County Prosecutors Office released all the evidence that the grand jury saw before choosing not to indict Officer Wilson. The 12 member body met in secret for several months before deciding. The documents included Darren Wilson's testimony to the grand jury. In it, he described the 18-year-old Brown as looking, "like a demon."
