    At the very least Darren Wilson should stand trial. Not having to do so would be a huge, huge mistake.

      This case was politicized by the major news media from the git go. Then the White House’s Justice Dept. made a store front out of it while much of the evidence in this case was being withheld from the public. It made it difficult to tell what actually happened. Then when we needed the Righteous Brothers we got the Blues Brothers and they didn’t help matters either. Everybody knew each one of their words was dripping with money. I say let the forensics and physical evidence, eye witnesses, and pathology, lead us to justice. Because we must stow our instincts to rush to judgement against the officer. We must first find out what actually happened. Let the truth guide us. And then let the chips fall where they may. Personally I believe the shoot first ask questions later mentality of the men in blue, is a product born out of the Patriot Act and the recent NDAA. The National Defense Authorization Act legally gives US authorities including the military, the right to kill or arrest and hold indefinitely without due process, US citizens.

        The only way to find out what happened is to have a trail. With respect to the blues brothers, we greatly apprectiate their willines to come when needed. In a similar circumstance, I would call them myself and wouldn´t care a bit about outsiders pointing and shaking their biased heads.

    The Grand Jury is a court and is determining if there is enough to go to court hearing. It is more like a coroners inquest. The protests should have no bearing on what is happening. Just the unemotional facts. This time period for Warren Wilson has to be a living hell. I hope things work out and racism stays out of the equation.

    There has been several involvements by this White house concerning mostly white police on black crimes and it was not helpful nor correct. We have a man in the White house that wants to lug up the people into a racist confrontation for his own personal gain. I’m not saying that this hasn’t happened. White police that target a black man. Or that it won’t happen in the future. I’m saying that the fire has been fuelled by the self interest crowd. The political crowd.

      It´s not at all helpful or productive when you make crap like this up. Obama has said or done nothing to suggest any such thing.

        Except that the justice department had no business butting in until there was evidence that the case was being mishandled. There was none, yet Eric Holder swooped in. So, to say Obama has done nothing to implicate that he is interested in stoking racial unrest is disingenuous.

        “Except that the justice department had no business butting in until there was evidence that the case was being mishandled. ”

        There has been ongoing complaints of injustice regarding Ferguson and its citizens. It wasn´t just about the case of Michael Brown. In fact Darren Wilson was fired from his previous job along with several other police officers for the same type of problems in a nearby town. The countypolice had to take over which is probably what´s going to happen here.
