The People’s Organization for Progress (POP) has announced that it will rally “the day after” the grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri hands down its decision if Officer Darren Wilson who was responsible for Brown’s death is not criminally charged!
POP announced that it will also rally “the day after” the grand jury in New York City hands down its decision if the officers who were responsible for the videotaped chokehold killing of an unarmed Eric Garner in Staten Island are not criminally charged!
