  1. Grand Jury Gears Up Over Teen’s Death

    Answers can’t come soon enough. A grand jury in St. Louis today begins probing the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown by a cop in the nearby suburb of Ferguson on Aug. 9. Witnesses have provided varying accounts of what happened on that fateful night. Meanwhile Tuesday’s evening protests started calmly, but ended with at least 47 arrests. And police fatally shot a knife-wielding young man just a few miles away — an incident some fear could further inflame protests, despite official statements that the rocked suburb has reached “a turning point.”
