Is Ferguson on the verge of civil unrest followed by martial law? Recent photos and videos from the area paint an ominous picture.
Ferguson, MO — The Grand Jury decision is expected any minute now out of Ferguson in regards to officer Darren Wilson and the killing of Micheal Brown.
It is highly likely that Wilson will not be indicted which could lead to massive unrest in the area.
Looting and violent rioting will only serve to undo the positive attention which Ferguson protesters have received over the past few months. That being said, there will undoubtedly be some people who use this Grand Jury decision as a means to violate the rights of others, both police and citizens.
However, as we have seen before, even when the protest is not-violent, the police frequently are.
This tendency to escalate a peaceful protest into a violent warzone is why the recent news and pictures out of Ferguson are particularly ominous.
The photo below was taken on Wednesday and uploaded to facebook of an armored vehicle in transport on North Florrisant Rd in Ferguson.
Today, a similar vehicle was spotted at the St. Ann Dairy Queen, just south of Ferguson.

This video was also uploaded to youtube, which allegedly shows 4 national guard helicopters flying over Kirkwood, just north of Ferguson.
There was also a rumor circulating on the web that large companies have issued warnings to their employees and told them to pack up and get out of the area. While this is all speculation, this type of martial law scenario is completely within the scope of US law enforcement.
