The grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the August 9 murder of Ferguson resident Mike Brown is simultaneously shocking and predictable. The global spotlight on Ferguson makes the decision to let Wilson walk all the more surprising, but the ugly reality is that police routinely murder Black and Brown people across the U.S. without facing consequences. The number of people killed by police last year was the highest number in 20 years, according to the FBI itself.
Come to this meeting to discuss why the police are so out of control and what we can do to demand justice.
