BY BRYCE GOYER

On Thursday January 8th, President Obama announced a proposal to provide two years of free community college. Obama proposed providing two years of tuition to American students who could maintain good grades at their community college.

This idea was initially brought to light in a video Obama filmed on Wednesday on Air Force One and posted to Facebook. Obama will formally lay out his proposal Friday during a speech in Tennessee. Obama is currently in his pre -State of the Union tour.

It is estimated by the White House that the average community college student will save $3,800 annually with this new proposal.

In a tense live video stream at 9 PM EST, St Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced the Grand Jury decision in the infamous Michael Brown case in St Louis, Missouri. There will be no indictment against Officer Darren Wilson.

Officer Darren Wilson fatally shot teen Michael Brown on August 9, sparking a series of violent protests and riots as friends and family of the teen insisted that the shooting was not done as a form of self-defense, as Wilson claims, but was racially motivated against the black teen.
