#FergusonOctober Day 2: Live Tweets and Links

I’ll embed some tweets, and just include the body of the tweet on others. You should be able to click the time-stamp hotlink to see photos or instagrams [example from tweet above, 2:08 PM – 8 Oct 2014].  I’ll add as I can, or include what you’d like in comments, okay?

“Protesters march in Clayton, Ferguson to kick off FergusonOctober weekend events,” St. Louis Dispatch:

CLAYTON • A rain-soaked crowd of several hundred people marched in downtown Clayton on Friday afternoon, kicking off this weekend’s FergusonOctober rallies and protests.

Hours later, a similar crowd took to the streets of Ferguson for a candlelight march and protest across from the police department, beating drums and chanting into the night as well as blocking West Florissant Avenue. Several protesters used bullhorns to direct the crowd, some asked protesters to move to south St. Louis where a police officer killed a teenager earlier this week after the teen opened fire on him.  There was a photo of a memorial to him, but I can’t find it again.

The Clayton march began outside St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch’s office. Activists have demanded that McCulloch step aside in the Michael Brown case.

Clayton police had barricaded Carondelet Avenue between Central and Bemiston avenues in anticipation of the event.

McCulloch has been presenting evidence to the Grand Jury for about a month now, with no end in sight.  November predictions will be moot if prosecutors depending on the results of an investigation into leaks by one member of the jury.

If prosecutors determine a juror leaked top-secret information, the court will have to start again with a new jury. If the current jury holds, it has until January to decide whether to charge Ferguson cop Darren Wilson in 18-year-old Michael Brown’s shooing death.

Blink, blink; sigh.

I followed along  bit yesterday, and grabbed some fun stuff from Elon James White of ThisWeekInBlackness Nation:
