Now that the indictment proceedings have finished, the parents of Michael Brown will probably elect to file a civil lawsuit against Officer Darren Wilson, the man who killed their son. According to the Title 42 section 1983 of the U.S. Code, a citizen may file for legal action against public officials if they feel the official violated their legal or Constitutional Rights. In a public statement following the release of the Grand Jury's decision Brown's parents said "We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequences of his actions".
Despite the Grand Jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson with charges stemming from the shooting of Michael Brown, Wilson is still the center of an internal investigation being held by the Ferguson Police Department. Though Wilson can return to duty at anytime, many believe he will never work in Ferguson or even as a cop again.
Protests for Ferguson reached down to Cape, as about 50 students protested on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. The crowd said they were peacefully protesting what they called an injustice. A student organizer helped start chants of "no justice, no peace" and "we are Michael Brown".
This week the Cape County School Board decided to move forward with a possible bond to assist in construction and renovation at Central Junior High and the Career and Technology Center. The measure is likely to come back to the board in December after no action was taken at Monday's meeting. The proposed bond wouldn't be more than $20 million, and would not raise taxes. $16 million would be for the Junior High and the Cape CTC.
