Over a hundred people marched down the streets of St. Louis (MO) last Saturday claiming for the police officer who shot Michael Brown to be imprisoned straight away. The final decision on whether the officer should face prison is to be made in the following days, and Tensions between the police and the protesters rose soon, and a few people ended up getting hurt after flying objects were thrown from both sides.

President Obama called for the protesters to stay calm and not jump into conclusions before the final decision is disclosed on Monday- as did Brown’s family. Both the National Guard and local officials have been planning a massive police presence to stop any potential violence that might break out in case the outcome is not the one expected  by the protesters. They will most likely have to mediate between those who want Wilson to be indicted and those who think he should be cleared of all charges.
