Governor Jay Nixon Declares a State of Emergency in Ferguson
While folks in Ferguson eagerly await the grand jury’s decision about whether or not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown, Gov. Jay Nixon declared a State of Emergency, citing safety concerns. “Regardless of the outcomes of the federal and state criminal investigations, there is the possibility of expanded unrest,” Nixon said. “The state of Missouri will be prepared to appropriately respond to any reaction to these announcements.”
Many have accused the governor of agitating the situation and stoking tensions, but the governor said he just wants to keep everyone safe. Of course, Twitter users had their say.
