Missouri Governor Jay Nixon says law enforcement in Ferguson, St. Louis County, St. Louis City, other area municipalities and the State Highway Patrol will work together when a grand jury releases its decision in the Michael Brown shooting investigation.
“Violence will not be tolerated,” the Governor writes in a statement released Tuesday.
The National Guard will also be part of the contingency planning process, “when we determine it is necessary to support local law enforcement,” says Nixon.
“We must and will be prepared,” he says.
A grand jury decision whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the August 9 shooting death of an unarmed teenager Michael Brown expected sometime during the last half of November.
