Too upset over what was announced last night in the failure of the Grand Jury to indict officer Darrin Wilson in the murder of Michael Brown to post today.

There are planned protests, vigils and demonstrations in 120 American cities today, Tuesday, Nov. 25th, including several in San Diego.

The tragedy in Ferguson highlights the true reason for all the killings of citizens. The Police have far to much power and discretion allowed to them in the name of “protecting society”. (code name for protecting capital, and its minions)

Did anyone bother to read officer Darren Wilson’s testimony? That innocent looking Micheal Brown, whom the news likes to potray, using his 8th grade school picture, is a 295+lb 6ft4 inch thug, who just pulled a strong arm robbery, 3 blocks away. He was beating officer Wilson, and about to take his gun from him. Put yourself in the officers shoes. Do some research!

Yes, we did. And we see the wild inconsistencies in Wilson’s story and the “Barney Fife” investigative work of the Ferguson PD. How odd that they didn’t bother to take any fingerprints off the gun even though Michael Brown “supposedly” grabbed it. That Wilson’s testimony says Michael Brown moved 20-30 feet away before charging back 10 feet, but yet Michael Brown’s body was found 150 feet away from the car. By Wilson’s account, Michael Brown was acting like a person on angel dust, but no trace of PCP was found in Brown’s system.

browns blood was inside the vehicle next to the bullet hole fired from inside the vehicle. Bad idea to attack the police.

Before we think we know better than the Ferguson Grand Jury, let’s all take a look (again) at Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing,” now 25 years old. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Nowhere in all of the statements is there a justification of why such a “trained” law enforcement officer had to shoot TO KILL in this situation. Where’s the training to de-escalate? Where’s the training to shoot in a non-lethal way if needed? Where’s the training to put it all in perspective? Brown may have stolen some meaningless crap and wax acting like a very big ass, but shoot him to kill him? Insane. Prosecute the smug Wilson now.

Why all the crime in the Ferguson neighborhood? Answer: all the jobs were sent to China. Wall Street and government have sucked all the jobs out of the middle class and transferred all of America’s wealth to the elite. The corruption in the police departments and criminality in our neighborhoods will continue until we get back to a constitutional government.

In all the TV coverage I watched, I didn’t see anybody looting work boots and work gloves. Why not?

There’s a good article on Today’s New Yorker entitled “Misuse of a Grand Jury,” by Jeffrey Tobin, in which he quotes Sol Wachtler, the former chief judge of the New York Court of Appeals, a prosecutor could persuade a grand jury to ‘indict a ham sandwich’ if he wanted to”. Has anyone investigated the local gran jury?

Jettyboy, nice troll for ignorant souls. Participation in Wall Street is voluntary. Not so with the victims of looting.


Marc Snelling November 28, 2014 at 9:21 am

I didn’t realize participation in Wall Street was voluntary. Now that I know I want my share of the auto company and bank bailouts back.


jettyboy November 29, 2014 at 10:45 am

That is about ignorant posts. You obviously have no idea how Wall Street works, or what it does.

The police are too difficult to prosecute in this country. It’s a shame that politicians have the backs of crooked cops and vice versa. If somebody out there thinks that the police in every community don’t stereotype young black men then they are living with the 1%. This country has become a cartoon of itself.
