A grand jury in Missouri will decide Monday evening whether the police officer involved in the controversial shooting will be indicted. Protests are likely in Oakland, as well as Ferguson, tonight, but Bonta, in a tweet this morning, called for justice, along with a quote from Mahatma Ghandi.
I stand with #Ferguson in seeking justice for Michael. "Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking." - GandhiBonta's sentiment today is not new. In fact, when word spread the grand jury in Ferguson was ready to announce its decision last Friday, Bonta posted an identical tweet.

He also has not been shy to speak out during other protests. In July 2013, after a jury in Florida acquitted George Zimmerman, the killer of Trayvon Martin, Bonta urged protesters to focus peacefully on the injustice of the decision.
