Scroll down to the bottom, work your way upstream in the comments, and revel! Wooot! Thank all of you who’ve brought them, you darlings of impeccable conscience and moral compasses at True North. If you rec this post, rec it for them.
LIVE FEED FROM fERGUSON:
I’ll update as needed. Among the various media announcements, it’s not clear if the decision itself will be announced, or simply just that the GJ has made its decision and has been released. Maybe we should just go with Anderson Cooper. [Updated: The Puppet Masters’ scribes are saying that the presser will either be at… 4, 5, 7, or 8 o’clock CST.] Until then: Dance.

Why yes, Mr. President, Holder: we know. Pfffft. Can’t wait until you install Loretta Lynch.
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) November 24, 2014 1:34 PM
KMOX News has received word from the St. Louis County Prosecutor’s office that a Ferguson grand jury decision has been reached.
Gov. Jay Nixon’s plane is arriving at Lambert Airport this hour.
A source close to the situation says Nixon is here to take part in a news conference planned sometime later today. The content of the news conference is not yet clear.
Earlier today, KMOX News asked the spokesman of St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch to appear on the air to go over the timeline of the grand jury.
SLToday: Grand jury has reached decision in Ferguson case
‘CLAYTON • A St. Louis County grand jury has reached a decision on whether to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson and officials will reveal it tonight, the Post-Dispatch has confirmed.
Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch had pledged that if Wilson is not indicted, most of the evidence presented to grand jurors would be publicly released, but a statement Sunday from Court Administrator Paul Fox said a judge must review the material first.
If there is an indictment, only the charging document would be revealed.’
That paper had also announced yesterday:
‘The grand jury can issue an indictment on any of those four charges. It also has the option of adding a charge of armed criminal action, authorities said.’

Re: Darren Wilson ‘quietly married’ his girlfriend’ (Barbara Spradling) who is also a cop. Yes, and Anon #HoodsOff claims she is a Klan member.
