Good morning. It is Monday, November lOth. It is about 9:30 in the morning. This is Kathi Alizadeh, Sheila Whirley is here and all 12 grand jurors are here, as well as , the court reporter. We started this morning with a conversation that was not on the record, but someone from the prosecutor's office has talked to the grand jurors about their concerns for security, safety and giving you some tips on how to be secure and safe from here on out.
I will stress again it is my 100, 110 percent sure that your identities will never be released by this office or by the courts. I'm aware that some of you are concerned that, you know, your identities might be discovered by people in the media or others, you know. We're doing our best that you are safe and secure after your service here no matter what your decision. And so that took up a little bit of time this morning.
So we are getting started this morning. I have Sergeant first, he's with the Ferguson Police Department, and he is in charge of their communications.
I will tell you that last week we had quite a bit of conversation, not conversation, testimony and evidence regarding radio communications, and regarding the county RIOT A channel.
I will tell you that after our last meeting, I think we met last Thursday was when we were last here, I have discovered that channel three is not the RIOT A channel in Ferguson.
So working under that assumption that it was, and there was some talk about having a map and so forth.
You remember who was here and testified, he's with county communications. He did a map for me that has the location of all of the county's voting receivers, you remember those ones that pick up the RIOT A channel.
There's also on the map where the Ferguson receiver is in relation to where the officer was, so I will hand out these maps.
