The Grand Jury of Ferguson, Missouri has reached a decision: to indict or not indict officer Darren Wilson on murder charges for shooting Michael Brown. They are supposed to have a press conference at 5:30 PM, according to the Washington Post, when their decision will be announced.
It would be a real travesty of justice if an innocent cop, acting in self-defense, were indicted for "murder," for shooting a violent assailant. However, in this country today, skin color trumps justice. One may not shoot a member of the Sacred Other, no matter what the reason. Like George Zimmerman, Wilson should just have accepted his fate in the name of civil rights, or diversity, or whatever.
It will be interesting to see the outcome of all this. Ferguson white people, keep your powder dry.
