WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. government prosecutors investigating the fatal police shooting of a black teenager that sparked a Missouri city's nights of rage face an uphill fight delivering the swift or sweeping results demanded by rights activists.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch expects a local grand jury investigating the killing to take evidence until mid-October, while a federal investigation may take longer and with results just as uncertain.

Protesters have called for the arrest of Officer Darren Wilson since the killing of Michael Brown, 18, in Ferguson on Aug. 9. Defenders of the white officer say he acted lawfully to defend himself during a confrontation with Brown.

I'm just curious as to whether people have enough faith in our justice system to allow trained prosecutors and detectives to reach a fair decision on whether or not Darren Wilson committed a crime.

I'm not a lawyer so I'm asking. What can the federal government charge the officer with? I've read only if its excessive force or a civil right violation?

on a related note in that it concerns this administration and this president and his use of this CRISIS......as well as your president's disdain and hatred of the military along with not caring one bit about ALL of the people he's supposed to represent.

WHITE HOUSE AIDES to attend funeral of michael brown.

but highest ranking SOLDIER killed since the war in NAM is laid to rest and there is NO ONE to be found from the white house.

"never let a crisis go to waste"
