The Grand Jury’s decision in Ferguson, MO not to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown Jr. sparked immediate protest around the country and unrest in Ferguson. Community leaders and activists are now calling for the Federal prosecution of Wilson on Civil Rights violations. And according to reports, the family of Michael Brown Jr. are also considering filing a Civil Suit against Wilson.
