Default Why didn't they announce the grand jury decision right now?

9AM in full daylight?

Why did the prosecutor decide to do this at night? Knowing about the very real threat of violence?

What was so important it had to announced after dark last night?

This was all planned. They want people to riot, they want people to be distracted by everything that's going on in the media right now. This is pathetic but the people that fall for it are even worse.

supposedly because those were business hours....altho its a retarded excuse consideering they could have easily closed up if they knew in advance. considering hoodlums usually only come out at night, and a lot of the protesters would've had to be at work, whoever made that call is a moron.

then again you know they would've just rioted that night either way. it might've lessened the riot anarchy tho.

The children. They wanted the children to be at home safe after school hours not during.

The entire situation is stupid.

You don't want people rioting while kids are going to school and people are trying to get to work. If they're going to riot regardless, rather they do it at night

They are still passed out after a long night of murder, raping and robbing. 9 AM is the best time to avoid a riot.

why would that be an advantage for the cops?

LA riots happened in board daylight. If anything the extra viability helps the looters.

Because less vulnerable people are out at night. Little kids at school, old folks at the park, etc.

If anything they should have announced the decision later. some people that work late and get off work probably were unnecessarily put in danger

um... the difference is, Ferguson doesn't have a metropolitan population of 12,000,000

granted, violence would've still occurred, but it would've been managed much better and it would've been less widespread.

a riot at 9 am lasting a whole day is much worse than a riot starting at night.

at 9 am you put little kids at risk.

I think there's more impunity at night.

They also could have gotten the full guard in daylight once anything started going down.

Why? what logical reason is there that the people who rioted and looted wouldnt have done so in the morning.

If anything it would have been worse as at least at night eventually these guys have to sleep

further imagine kids at school being stuck there while a city riots

if anything you announce the decision at 1 am. that way only the people that really want to be there are caught in the riot. all people who want no part of it wont be trapped by it
