As people stood outside of the courthouse, some with their faces covered, blasting loud music screaming “F–k the police,” the decision that they feared was revealed.

It was announced by prosecutor Bob McCulloch (Nov. 24) at a press conference that no probable cause was found to indict police officer Darren Wilson on charges for the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Wilson fatally shot Brown on Aug. 9th in Ferguson, MO.

Now let’s put that foul into some context: the game was a rematch, of sorts, of the hard fought Eastern Conference finals of the previous year (which the Pistons won in six games.) So there was bad blood. The game they were playing was a blowout, with Pacers up 15 points at the time.
