TODAY'S HEADLINES, 11/25/14 *** A grand jury in St. Louis, Missouri, has chosen not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown. The decision follows three months of deliberation by the jury of nine whites and three blacks, including four hours of testimony from Wilson himself. The grand jury decision set off outrage in Ferguson and communities across the country who see Brown's killing as part of a wide-scale pattern of police mistreatment of people of color. Shortly after the verdict, police fired tear gas on protesters in Ferguson. At least a dozen buildings in Ferguson were broken into and burned and sporadic gunfire was heard overnight *** Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has been forced to resign under pressure from President Obama less than two years after taking office. The announcement comes just weeks after a spokesperson for Hagel said he intended to remain in his post until the end of Obama's presidency. Hagel had criticized the Obama administration's war on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria *** In Florida, an African-American woman facing decades in prison for firing what she says was a warning shot into a wall near her abusive husband has taken a plea deal. Marissa Alexander's case generated national outrage after she was sentenced to 20 years in prison, even though she didn't kill anyone, while, in another Florida case, George Zimmerman was acquitted of shooting African-American teenager Trayvon Martin dead. Alexander's attorneys unsuccessfully tried to use Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law in her defense, saying she feared for her life when she fired the shot. After an appeals court ordered a new trial over faulty jury instructions, Florida prosecutors sought a 60-year term, three times her original sentence. On Monday, Alexander took a plea deal to serve three years, a sentence she has nearly completed *** More tomorrow
