Security stepped up ahead of Ferguson grand jury decision

Security stepped up ahead of Ferguson grand jury decision
Michael Brown, 18, a high-school graduate planning to go to technical college, was shot at least six times by Darren Wilson in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson on August 9, inflaming racial tensions and sparking weeks of protests, some violent.

The mostly black suburb of 21,000, which has an overwhelmingly white police force and town government, has been on edge for several days in anticipation of the jury’s decision. Metal interlocking fences and orange plastic barricades sealed off the Buzz Westfall Justice Center in Clayton, another suburb of the city of St. Louis and where the grand jury has been meeting, with a handful of uniformed officers on duty outside.

A police officer unfurled yellow tape saying, ‘St Louis Police Lines’,  ‘Do Not Cross’ around the barricades.
