Quotes

"We felt confident that the evidence would lead to a conviction" said Hood after the verdict was reached
As civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis recently observed, "Ferguson, Missouri, is part of the United States of America. People have a right to protest, they have a right to dissent, they have a right to march in an orderly, peaceful, nonviolent fashion, and the press has a right to cover it."
Cyndee Ible Frontal , the sister of the victim said, "Even though our sister made the decision to have the injection done, we still feel that Tracy Garner made the decision to do illicit butt injections without being a physician and without being licensed. And so therefore she deserves what she got today."
"Show up at the voting booths. Let your voices be heard, and let everyone know that we have had enough of this" Davis said
