Michael Brown Family Lawyer: "The Process Is Broken"

An attorney for Michael Brown's family said the lack of indictment of the white police officer who fatally shot the teen in Ferguson, Missouri, is a sign that the legal proceedings were flawed, NBC News reported. “This process is broken. The process should be indicted," Benjamin Crump said at the Tuesday news conference. Meanwhile, Rev. Al Sharpton said of prosecuting attorney Robert McCulloch: “I've never seen a prosecutor hold a press conference to discredit the victim." Michael Brown Sr. appeared at the news conference Tuesday wearing a T-shirt with the slogan, “No Justice No Peace,” but he did not speak. It was announced Monday night that Officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted over the shooting of the unarmed teen on Aug. 9, sparking violent protests and acts of civil disobedience in several U.S. cities overnight.

Benjamin Crump said Brown's mother Lesley McSpadden “believed that [Officer Darren Wilson] would at least be charged with something. She really had faith that the system would work for her child so she was profoundly disappointed as only a mother could be.” On Monday, the grand jury in St. Louis County decided against indicting Wilson, causing violent protests and acts of civil disobedience in several U.S. cities overnight.

Winter Storm Set to Snarl Thanksgiving Motorists in Northeast

Meteorologists said early Tuesday that a winter storm was likely to hit the Northeast on a day when more than 46 million people across the nation were expected to hit the roads for Thanksgiving. Traffic-thwarting weather conditions are predicted for the most traveled day of the holiday week -- Wednesday. Snow and ice are in the forecast from New England to Georgia for Wednesday night, prompting winter storm watches in the region. "Travel is not going to be a lot of fun for people trying to get to grandma’s house on Wednesday," said a lead meteorologist at The Weather Channel.

For Ferguson Protesters and Cops, Fear Is Common Denominator

For Ferguson police officers, protesters and their families, fear is the common denominator ahead of the announcement of a grand jury's decision whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown. “For the first time since living here, we feel unwelcome,” said Ferguson resident Jamie Howard, whose husband, Robert, is a police officer in a nearby town. Another police officer, who is black, said that “people don’t trust law enforcement" in the wake of Brown's death. But some activists, like D. Hampton, are in hiding because "it’s not safe to go to stay with our family." Read »
