"What happens if the grand jury now considering the case doesn’t return a charge against the officer? "
Under our system of laws that should be the end of it.
However, under the system of "mob rule" let the burning and looting begin.

I have lived just blocks from South Ave and US 224 for 26 years. My street is heavily traveled by people trying to miss the light at that intersection. I pay my taxes on time also.My street has never been repaved or re-asphalted does that make us second class. Perhaps the Street Department is busy filling the potholes on the streets you use to get to work, shopping or to get your kids safely to school.

Nolan accepted an appointment as a Senior Policy Advisor at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) in Washington, DC in May 2011 and remained with DHS through May of 2012, traveling throughout the United States providing training and consulting on civil rights and civil liberties issues for state and major urban area fusion centers.
I expect that he has never even been to Ferguson.As long as the community challenges law enforcement the police will do what ever they must do to prevail.No one has been killed or seriously injured in the police response.To do any less would allow anarchy.This incident began with two young men challenging the authority of the police and continues with some members of the community looting and rioting.We must all let the investigation proceed to see what happened and take the appropriate action to insure justice is served.The President once again has jumped in and chosen sides a practice that has not worked well for him in the past.

That's certainly putting it mildly.

Throwing more money at the current bureaucracywill only result in bigger bonuses for the fat cats in administration.Someone needs to clean house and get rid of the current administration who has allowed this to happen.As the President has said the ACA will provide the same quality of care as the VA has provided to our veterans.I can't wait.

I think fast-food workers should make at least $50,000 per year. Have you ever spent any time in one of these work places.Twenty people doing the work of five is not easy.How many people want to work in that environment so you have a real shortage of workers and a high demand for fast-food.I was at the McDonald,s on 224 and Market Street this week and I couldn't believe the chaos.I ordered a dipped cone with my meal and the guy put the chocolate on with a plastic spoon.The people were all screaming at each other and there were three times as many workers as customers and it was lunch hour.Yes $50,000 is what they should be paid.That might attract some competent workers and they could live up to the fast-food mantra.

Half a million dollars is a pretty stiff fine for a domestic violence guilty plea.

This should be a great opportunity for a free admission to the "Comedy Club".The press must be running out of light humor if they are sending Joe out on the road again.

Can't wait for the Affordable Care Act debacle to begin. It should break all records for bureaucratic waste.Government workers call this "job security".
