On Monday it was been revealed that the evidence being presented to the Grand Jury in Ferguson may be kept secret.

The jury is reconvening today to discuss the case of Wilson, and if they choose to indict him the evidence they have heard will never be revealed because it will instead be used during trial.

St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Robert McCulloch has said that the judge has agreed that the evidence will be released to the public if there is no indictment. However, on Sunday evening, a statement contradicting this was released saying that Judge Carolyn Whittington has made no such agreement.

Paul Fox, the director of judicial administration, said that Judge Whittington must analyze the records before she can approve their release. Fox pointed out that this cannot be done until the grand jury has heard all the evidence presented to them.

This development is yet another hitch in the mess that is the Ferguson situation. The world has been on edge for a week now waiting for them to make their decision, and it is still unknown how close they actually are.

What do you think of this evidence potentially remaining secret? Sound off in the comments below!
