    Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- The streets of Ferguson were quiet on Monday as the city waited for an expected announcement of a decision from the grand jury weighing evidence in the Michael Brown shooting, U.S. and local law enforcement officials told CNN.
    More businesses boarded up their doors and windows over the weekend, in case protests take a violent turn, although most of the demonstrations so far have been peaceful. Community leaders and activists have called for calm.
    Many residents just want to get the whole thing over with. When asked about the grand jury decision, some said they have been hearing for days that it was imminent.
    "I will believe it when I see it," said Stefannie Wheat.
    The announcement will come from the St. Louis County prosecutor, the sources said.

    And the saga continues...

    It does not matter what the decision is, blacks will want his head on a plate because he is white. It is about race and nothing else.

    Would there have been riots and looting had the officer been killed? I doubt it.

    Two reasons:

    1. The title of the op came from (copy and pasted) the title of the article until the updated it.

    2. The decision has been reached it just has not been announced yet. Those are two entirely different things.

    And that is the same thing that a lot of Blacks say about their encounters with the police. That's the same thing that a lot of Blacks say about why so many Whites support Wilson.

    Folks in Ferguson are doing this because:

    1. They are racists

    2. They want to capitalize on a non issue in order to gain sympathy for political power.

    3. Outsiders have come into town and are using this as a political tool.

    4. The AG and his cronies as well as the race baiters like Sharpton have gotten ignorant people stirred up.

    Folks in Ferguson are not doing this because:

    1. There is a legitimate issue to be fired up about.

    2. There has been an obvious injustice done.

    3. They would have done this without racebaiters and out of town pot stirrers

    ...Who view everything through racially-biased glasses.

    A grand jury reached a decision Monday in the case against the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August, touching off nationwide protests and cries of police brutality.

    The Office of the Prosecuting Attorney in St. Louis County, Mo., made the announcement shortly before 3 p.m. CT, but did not say when the decision would be revealed and gave no indication whether Darren Wilson would be charged in the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

    I cannot say it any differently than it is already worded.

    I guess I should have been more clear, why did you highlight that portion?

    It is highlighted for dramatic effect. Like a cliffhanger ending. Stay tuned...
