    If the political and media grandstanders wore the gag, and real journalists, and politicians with I.Q.s higher than slime mold were heard instead, “Justice” could have her say again in the courts, not in manipulations of EITHER SIDE in the media and public “opinion”. As Joe Friday used to say on “Dragnet”; “Just the facts, Ma’am”.

    Michael Brown got justice. He was a thug and he tried to take a police officer’s gun.

    You were there? You saw that?

    I could just as easily say that Mr. Brown was walking away with his hands up. I don’t know this, either.

    The grand jury heard dozens of hours of testimony, and I don’t envy them one bit, as each one of them fears retribution.

    I don’t know what they heard. The testimony is secret. But I’m pretty sure the members of the Grand Jury realized how important it was to get this right.

    One thing I do know: almost none of us know what went on. And to assume something based on what we read or heard elsewhere is just an exercise in trying to justify opinions that were pre-formed.

    One question…IF the Convenience store owner had popped this guy, would the city be burning?

    Interesting thought.

    If the first minutes of the Rodney King tape had been repeated as often as the end, like when he was choking a deputy, trying to kill him, after King had been tasered, and IF King had been shot and killed, on tape, while assaulting the officer, dozens of lives would have been saved.


    But anyone who thinks there’s no discrimination in law enforcement across the nation, is also nuts.


    Justice depends on facts, not media hype, bigotry, or stupidity on the part of the public.

    If we were on Mars, would be be suffocating?

    You’re talking about a completely different set of circumstances and possibilities.

    Interesting that you bring up Rodney King. As we know, he was no saint. But he tried to reduce violence when he asked if we could all try to get along, and I have to give him credit for that.

    I have never been a parent, so I have never been in the position of losing a child. But the victim’s mother made her mind up well before any facts were known. I feel strongly that if she asked for calm and that any protest be peaceful and respectful that there would be a much more muted protest than what we have seen.

    Easy for me to say….

    Two links:
    Officer Darren Wilson’s story is unbelievable. Literally.

    McCullochs’ pathetic prosecution of Wilson.

    One may perhaps consider how justice plays out in the US. Is it always or even mostly fair? Do people really w3ant to know the facts?

    I am not black, not even american but I was raised in a poor family in a poor corner of Canada and when I was a kid, even I heard stories about how cops can be supicious or unfair to you just because you’re poor.

    If white, poor acadian kids grow up with that fear in the peaceful Great White North, I can only imagine what it’s like in a place where race is an issue as big as it is in the US.
