    What is the grand jury supposed to do? If no charges I don't understand what decision they are making.
    By law, all homicides have to be no billed by a grand jury. But the prosecutor can either recommend a trial or not. If the prosecutor doesn't recommend a trial, there pretty much isn't going to be one. If the prosecutor does want to go to trial, the grand jury can agree or override him.

    Excellent work getting the drop on 2 BGs before they could start their assault.

    Sometimes you have to make assumptions and hope you're right afterwards. Ya know - if it waddles, quacks, has feathers, and swims: it's more likely to be a duck than an aardvark.

    The penalty for assuming wrong is sometimes permanent.
