New supply of armaments comes after weeks of leaks from the prosecutor that were condemnatory of unarmed police shooting victim, Michael Brown. The prosecutor's leaks were geared toward justifying a "no indictment" finding against the killer cop by his rigged grand jury.

St. Louis County police said they have spent around $100,000 stocking up on riot gear and other items they may need if protests turn violent after prosecutors announce whether a Ferguson officer will face criminal charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch has said the grand jury decision is expected in mid- to late November. His spokesman, Ed Magee, said Monday that the decision will come no earlier than Saturday, but the exact date is not yet known.
Businesses, schools and government offices have been gearing up for the announcement amid fear that protests could become violent if the grand jury decides not to recommend charging Wilson.
