Here is what the family said following news the officer wouldn't be indicted: "Join with us in our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera. A growing number companies are now interested in developing wearable body cameras, and due to a growing number of high-profile incidents across the country, there is a more lively debate if police agencies should adopt their use.

Meanwhile, there are so many fires in Ferguson, fire crews are having trouble to respond to all of them, especially as vandals continue to pose significant safety threats.
