This city and this surrounding area is really are at this stories that are open when you going to and the coffee shops the restaurants. This is all anyone is talking about the impending announcement. They'd possible decision by the grand jury. And prosecutor Robert McCullough is. Task before them give into them to consider for charges against 28 year old officer Darren Wilson. For the shooting of Michael Brown those charges are. Involuntary manslaughter manslaughter murder in the first and murder in the second now there has been. Seven discussion over the autopsy report that county autopsy report. Which showed blood. From Michael Brown inside the police vehicle now there has been in arguments he made it that indicates there was some kind of struggle some kind of inter action between Michael brown and officer Gary Wilson which may supports. An argument that heat. Reached for a weapon however on the other side I there's an argument that. From a witness who is there that night with Michael Brown as saying that he was pulled inside the vehicle. So although that is one piece of evidence that is been revealed from that county autopsy report. We really don't know anything about how the grand jury will consider it we have. Being a expecting.
