hearing evidence in this case. over the last few days, there's been an increase both on police and protest side in the presence that we've seen. protests have been louder. they've been larger. they've been more intent. police presence has been growing across st. louis and especially here in ferguson. there are more police cars both on the state, local and county levellevels we know the fbism ao has sent in more than 100 ages to assist local law enforcement with any unrest that may arise. they're eight awaiting the decision. it's a few hours iowa. >> you talked about the increased police. (. fbi have their police officers there as well. atf has police officers as well. but what about the average citizen and shop owners and such what? what are they doing? are they boarding up? what's happening right now? as soon as word came down the jury reached a decision in clayton where the courthouse,
lots of those businesses shut down right away. several began putting boards up. several already had boards up even and many business there is have said they will close tomorrow. that's because over a week ago protesters said after this decision was made, no matter what it was, they were going to shut the city of clayton down to make statement here in this ca case. >> clayton of course is where the courthouse is where that decision is coming. fox's garrett tenney, thank you very much. we'll continue to follow the situation in ferguson through this evening. when an announce many comes you'll see the on air and on myfoxphilly.com. >> a man crashes into several cars and then tries to take off but people in the neighborhood were not about to let him get off so easily. drama video of the confrontation. scott? >> iain, a record high today of 72 degrees but get ready for temperatures in the 30s and
>> decision from the grand jury looking into the michael brown case ferguson, missouri sorey has been bracing for this news for week. announcement of a decision should police officer darren wilson face charges for killing an unarmed teenager michael brown last summer? the teen was killed in a confrontation with officer wilson back in august and protests erupted in missouri and around the country. grand juries do their work in secret going through testimony and evidence trying to determine if there's enough to pursue charges against darren wilson. joining us live ken rotweiler and defense attorney chaka
johnsson. thanks for being with you much this case a white cop killing a black suspect divide not ferguson missouri but all of america. ken, let's start with. do you think they will indict? >> i do not think they will indict and i'll tell you why. i think that the forensic evidence they heard, there's been leaks from the grand jury even though there's not supposed to be there was a leak that talk about the shot in the car where there was actually a bullet fired inside darren wilson's car, and there was also a leak with regard to the autopsy that was done and both of those things could support wilson's story it's self-defense from that as spec i don't think there's going to be an indictment but let me just tell you iain i think because the jury wasn't sequestered that is they were home during all of this three months and they heard all the news reports and they saw all of how this played out on television there could be potentially violence that was pressure for them to indict. so i wouldn't be surprised either way but if i had to make call on it i would think they're not going to indict officer wilson.
all right. how about chaka, a grand jury of course as we know are secret if wilson is not indicted everyone is talking about this evidence want we'll see. evidence brought before the grand jury may not be disclosed to the public for sometime, isn't that right. >> typically if there is no true pass or no indictment, obviously those grand jury transcripts the testimony will be made public at that time. >> all right. ken, let's go back to you for second. you just talked about all this uncertain we've seen all the unrest. they didn't have to go the grand jury. the prosecutor could have charged him or appointed a special prosecutor. why do you think they did the grand jury? >> because i think they wanted the citizens themselves to decide. i mean the grand jury they empanelled 12 people, nine of those 12 have to vote to indict. so i think they wanted to make it as open a process. this is a racially charged case much this is a case that everybody is talking about across the country they didn't want to appoint to special prosecutor it would be just one person and some people could orgy that person would be biased having 12 people decide seemed to the prosecutor to be the fairest and most open way to do it.
>> ken and i tend to agree on lot things on this one point we do disagree. i think this was an opportunity for local officials to sort of take hands off approach with respect to this particular iss issue. i think that the racial tension that obviously infusing in the heart of this case made it a little bit of an easier decision for local officials to say we're not going to make a decision especially involving one of our own. look if we choose to prosecute officer wilson, obviously they're going to say we're being influenced by the community at large and being influenced by the court of public opinion. if we don't prosecute officer wilson i think we know what will happen here in our community. let's take it to grand jury in hopes after three months, this would have died down a little bit. frankly, the citizenry of ferguson has kept that from happening. they have kept this thing alive and well on front and center stage. >> all right. attorneyattorneys ken rotweilerd chaka johnson thanks for joining us tonight offering your insight on this case. >> we're monitoring the events in ferguson and across the country 24/7 on myfoxphilly.com.
