Could Ferguson Grand Jury Indict Wilson to Avoid Riots?

Obviously officials in Missouri are preparing for the worst where it concerns the decision of the grand jury concerning the shooting death of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

Clearly many expect Wilson not to be indicted as the evidence suggests that Wilson shot Brown in self defense.

Yet the grand jury is surely not ignorant of what has been developing and know what scrutiny they are under. Given this pressure, is it possible the grand jury could return an indictment against Wilson to avoid a riot?

Needless to say, it would be wrong to indict Wilson if there is no legal foundation for doing so. It could also make things worse if Wilson ends up being acquitted. Of course, the jury could end up convicting Wilson for the sake of avoiding a riot. Where would the justice be in that?
