Video: National Guard arrives in St. Louis, Missouri

Members of the National Guard began to arrive in St. Louis, Missouri Tuesday, ahead of an expected grand jury decision on whether to bring charges against Darren Wilson, the police officer who killed Michael Brown in August.

Area residents told the World Socialist Web Site that Governor Jay Nixon’s proclamation of a “state of emergency” was an attempt to intimidate the population into accepting what is broadly expected to be a decision not to indict Wilson.
