Ferguson police, protesters to announce conduct pact
Clayton, Mo. — Police and government leaders are preparing to outline an agreement reached with activist groups spelling out how protesters will conduct themselves following a grand jury announcement in the Ferguson case.
The agreement will also spell out conduct that police will agree to abide by. St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay and Missouri Department of Safety Director Daniel Isom plan to discuss the agreement at a Friday afternoon news conference in Clayton.
The grand jury is considering whether to indict Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9. Wilson is white and Brown was black. The shooting spurred protests, and unrest is expected to escalate once the announcement is made. That announcement could come any day.
