DOJ Releases Holder Video Statement Ahead of Wilson Indictment Decision

By Aura Bogado Nov 21, 2014

Attorney General Eric Holder appears in a new video released today that touts new guidelines for best practices for policing ahead of a St. Louis grand jury’s decision on whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in connection with the shooting and killing of Mike Brown. In it, Holder also encourages peaceful demonstration. 

It’s still unclear when the indictment will be announced, but the St. Louis Post Dispatch is reporting that the Jennings School District will be closed Monday and Tuesday in anticipation of an announcement this weekend. School will be back in session for Jennings schools students on December 1.

Two other local school districts, Riverview Gardens and Ferguson-Florissant haven’t announced any school closures, and it’s not known whether Hazelwood schools, also in the area, will close next week.
