    Imagine if you punch a cop in the face and try to take his gun……..

    Well, we do have those pictures of Wilson after this “near death” experience.
    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2014/11/25/darren-wilson-medical-exam-shooting/70081094/
    Note the broken nose, the black eyes with crushed eye sockets, the brutally torn off ear – oh, don’t see that? Me neither. I’ve seen way worse with a couple drunks fighting. Hell, I’ve HAD way worse just from a pissed off woman.

    I imagine those pictures are flying over the twitterverse right now, with a few scathing comments about “this is the guy that was supposed to be beaten half to death”.

    Until now nobody seems to know what really happened. And there would be no trail so nobody will ever know.
    My personell opinion is, that this is wrong. A trail would had helped.
    But I hope the next case in Cleveland (the 12 year kid) will get a trail. Because after I saw this video I say this was gross homicide.

    (But I also condemn his parents to allow him such a stupid toy and let him play in the public with it)

    The word you want is trial, not trail.

    That’s right Mr.CG, drink your Kool-Aid. Drink it all up so Mr. Ailes can tuck you into bed tonight.

    Doubt it. Even Zimmerman got off because he “believed” he was in danger.

    Cops are not paid to get into fair fights and to duke it out to see who wins. Goodness people are sooooo pathetically twisted.

    If Blacks and sympathetic Whites are so upset with the system of justice in this country, what changes to they want? If the Grand Jury method is not acceptable, what is the alternative? Trial by news media? Benevolent and wise men/women? The Jury system is old and proven. No other system works nearly as well.

    A standard jury will suffice. Grand Juries are generally crap, and generally used when a prosecutor doesn’t want to publicly make the call to prosecute or not.

    Exactly like now.

    @Psychedelic Donut

    How about a prosecutor that wanted to stay neutral? He gave the jurors ALL the evidence available. The jury of nine citizens made a decision. If Grand Juries are generally crap, what is your alternative?

    @John Locke; Roughly half the states have an alternative to a Grand Jury (GJ)… they don’t have them at all.

    A prosecutor is not supposed to be neutral, it’s their JOB to be fully on the offense and PROSECUTE; it’s somebody else’s job to handle the defense. The purpose of a Grand Jury is not to determine innocent or guilt, they are to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges or indict, and proceed with a formal trial.

    With a Grand Jury, the only time a prosecutor (generally) provides ALL evidence is when they DO NOT want to prosecute but they want somebody else to take the responsibility for that decision. Providing ALL evidence is tantamount to sabotaging their own case.

    That’s EXACTLY what happened with Fergeson, and that’s why even the National Bar Association has stated their displeasure with this verdict.

    Of course not. That’s what night sticks, pepper spray, and Tasers are for.

    “Goodness people are sooooo pathetically twisted.”

    Yes. Sometimes your posts illustrate that nicely.

    The reason black men are viewed as they are by police and some others is the thousands of hours of surveillance video they appear on daily doing stupid violent criminal stuff.
    Johns Hopkins University has done studies that show some young people become psychotic from long term weed use.
    Like the young black guys who shot the jogger in Oklahoma city because he was there.Or the young black guys who shot a delivery guy at a do-nut shop in Tulsa for no reason.Or the ones who shot a customer at a convenience store robbery in Houston the other day.
    Micheal Brown had weed in his system at the time of his death.He stole a $2 box of Swisher Sweet cigars to go some where and make blunts (fill them with weed).
    The culture they live in that glorifies gangsta rap music and that dope selling,using lifestyle is to blame for their plight.That and the liberals in charge of the education system that fails them completely or nearly so.If they get good grades in school they are said to be “acting white”.
    Then they can get no job worth spit nor will they try.They are stuck with welfare, food stamps, rent subsidies, and Obama phones.Along with Al and Jesse telling them it is white peoples fault.No one makes them dropout of school and spend the next few years drunk and high before they end up in jail for dumb doper psychotic stuff.
    Now we see the result of 50 years of government programs.
    The government can’t fix their situation.Only they can.
    My hat is off to those that beat the system and have a life an
