Atlanta Police Preparing For Possible Civil Unrest Following Darren Wilson Indictment
Representatives from several metro Atlanta police departments will meet Thursday afternoon to discuss preparations to handle incidents that may arise following an upcoming decision by a Missouri grand jury on whether to indict a Ferguson, Mo., police officer involved in this summer’s fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
Officials with Atlanta, Marietta and DeKalb County police will be joined by representatives from the Georgia State Patrol, Emory and Georgia State universities and Morehouse College at the 2 p.m. meeting at the DeKalb County Board of Education offices in Stone Mountain.
“The meeting will address how individual entities are planning for incidents that may occur as a result of the [grand jury] decision,” DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said in a media release Wednesday evening. “In addition, the briefing will review how the region is collaborating to ensure metro Atlanta communities remain safe and are not negatively impacted by events that may unfold in Ferguson.”
Information about the St. Louis County, Mo., grand jury’s decision on whether there is enough evidence to charge Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson with a crime could come Friday.
While there is no specific date for a decision to be revealed, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch has previously said he expects a decision from the grand jury in mid- to late November.
Are the cops gonna turn the home of Dr. Martin Luther King into the 1960’s again?
