WELDON SPRING, Mo. – Police will work to protect peaceful protesters after a grand jury's decision in the Michael Brown shooting case is announced, but those who cross the line into violence will face consequences, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon warned Tuesday.
More than 1,000 police officers have received special training ahead of a decision expected later this month about whether Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, will face criminal charges for fatally shooting Brown, 18, who was black and unarmed.
The National Guard will be available if needed and a unified command of state, St. Louis city and St. Louis County police will provide security for protests.
At a news conference with law enforcement officials to outline preparations, Nixon recalled violent protests that occurred soon after Brown was killed in August.
"That ugliness was not representative of Missouri and it cannot be repeated," he said.
