And that’s a VERY good thing at this point in our nation’s history.
Michael Brown’s death was the breaking point for alot of people. I can only hope the people of America will no longer keep quiet in the face of an injustice committed on their watch.
For once, I commend all of the Corporate Media outlets (CNN, MSNBC and Fox News) for exposing to the world how corrupt the decision makers in Missouri are to the world. NO ONE was surprised with the verdict for this case. Overwhelming evidence it was end this way was obvious from day 1 so…yeah. The only people surprised by the eruption of unrest worldwide in reaction to the decision are the people who made the decision.
This is an injustice that must be addressed or things will continue to get worse. The Department of Justice needs to step in since it’s obvious the Missouri legal system and the state’s executive branch are both corrupt. This investigation was set up to ensure the officer in question (his name is not worth remembering in my opinion) would get away with murder. The lack of remorse or apathy on his part during TV interviews just adds insult to injury.
I hope this is the wake up call the rest of America needs to take action. What you have here is an admitted murderer smugly saying he not only feels no remorse about what he did but he would not hesitate to do it again given the opportunity. Yes, this is a man who recently married and is himself expecting a child. It would be more than a little ironic for him to be in the same situation as the Brown family in 18 years.
I consider what happened in Ferguson an injustice first, corruption second and an execution third. This investigation was such a blatant cover up, there WILL be a federal investigation sooner or later but hopefully sooner.
No family or person regardless of race or economic status should have to live in fear of the police. There’s human just like we are, after all.
…Being honest, I was going to throw in a certain NWA rap song at the end of this blog post but in light of certain emotions I know alot of people are feeling right now, I decided against doing that.
What I will say instead is protest peacefully wherever you are.
