Officer Wilson not indicted....

Anyone watching the nightmare unfold on CNN? It absolutely sickening. Looting, fires, gun shots. How does this make people feel justified? Let's light a business on fire, let's steal from a local business. My heart breaks. Saw protests are starting in NYC..

And....what are they protesting? The grand jury looked at all the evidence. Carefully. Thoughtfully. Thouroghly. They found that there was not evidence to send an indictment. I listened to the press confrence and it sounds like justice was served correctly. The police officer was not to blame.

So what are they protesting? The lack of a conviction based on what they THINK happened? It certainly is not on the evidence.

Looting, fires etc shows they are animals. The whole world is watching this city.....this city that is putting the REAL cause 10 steps back.

Im watching this city burn......and the worst part is that im SURE fire departments wont go out and save peoples homes. I would not blame them either.

These rioters are the ones that are breaking the law. THEY are the ones who regular citizens should be protesting.

It is a disgrace. They are destroying the livelihood of their community. It is an excuse for criminals to behave like animals.

There are peaceful protests going on but the news is focusing on assholes rioting. What is rioting going to do? It's stupid and pointless.

They are protesting, a black man being killed. They don't care about evidence, they care about a black thug being killed. Al Sharpton leads his followers into this bullshiit. What a disgrace.

While I can see all the different sides and issues in this case, and those like it, I can not allow myself to get wrapped up in the nonsense which it has become.

I think what's going on with the riots are awful and ridiculous. But I heard conflicting reports about the kid shot though.so I'm confused...

I heard he never robbed that store?

He was unarmed, right?

Not arguing, just trying to understand how the officer got off with shooting an unarmed kid though.

I'll be honest I am not studying this story so of anyone has all the facts... Please explain!

Thanks!

The officer explained there was a struggle in the car and the autopsy reports confirmed his story.

Re: Officer Wilson not indicted....

It is disgusting. I was watching until late last night and then realized that these reporters are glorifying these assholes.

There were plenty of peaceful protesters. Everywhere actually. But the looting? It's Christmas in Missouri for those people. Who needs black friday savings when you can get a 5 finger discount all in the name of a dead guy.

It's despicable. All I kept thinking about were those poor business owners. They were mostly small businesses. As as an owner of a small business, my heart was breaking for what they are losing. Everything.

Re: Officer Wilson not indicted....

The riots and violence are a disgrace.

I think the issue at hand, that has gotten lost in the debauchery, is that had that teen boy been white would the officer have been as quick to shoot.

THAT is the issue IMO.

If we are all being honest with ourselves it is a reality, black men are more of a "threat" than white men. Statisically speaking they are more dangerous and I do think it might have been a different outcome had he been a white kid. Again I am not saying the Officer purposely killed him bc he was black but I think the underlying issue is there.

It is a hard situation bc it is not something that is easy to fix but it is a true and real issue.

Re: Officer Wilson not indicted....

The fire fighters were trying to put out all of the fires and had to stop when people were shooting at them.

I seriously do not understand how anyone can justify looting, breaking windows, setting fires, and all of these other evil acts in the name of protesting. To me that does nothing to further their causes and sets them back so much. I cannot take them seriously when this is the outcome of their protest because some bad apple spoiled the lot.

If people were protesting the man shot by the police officer in the pink apartments, I could totally understand it. That man was an innocent victim and that police officer was negligent to have his safety off and finger on the trigger. But in Ferguson, if you are going to attack a police officer you should expect to have problems and death is foreseeable if you are attacking or threatening to attack a police officer.

I think it's sad that Michael Brown's parents asked for peaceful protests and instead the city erupted. Rioting, looting accomplishes nothing.

And THIS!!! THIS is the problem!!!!!!!!
(Not calling YOU out, calling out the process)

Everyone has "heard" something. The media has screwed up this story from the moment it happened.

Based on the NEWS people THINK they knew what happened. And so when the actual facts come out everyone is confused.

And angry.

And does not understand.

And is perplexed the officer "got off".

So when facts and science are introduced, well THAT can't be right can it?

The media is 99% to blame for this. It's not about the facts anymore. It's about getting anyone who will stand in front if a camera and say whatever it is they can to get on TV. Saying what they THOUgHt happened.

I'm numb at the businesses looted and burned. All those people out of work. Out of jobs. Loosing their livelihood. All the employees they paid who now don't have jobs.

Facts showed the officers account of what happened is what actually happened. Science proved it.

I'm just so angry this city was looted and burned in the name of "justice".

Exactly people. Educate yourselves.

This link and testimony information was very helpful for me - and terrifying/jaw dropping to read. I never heard on the news that Michael Brown was 6'4'' and 290 lbs to Officer Wilson's 5'10'' and 180 lbs frame. Chat Icon It's amazing what they choose to report and what they choose to withhold.

http://news.yahoo.com/in-darren-wilsons-words-grand-jury-testimony-gives-first-look-at-officers-fear-before-michael-brown-shooting-132740762.html

CLICK - Officer's Grand Jury Testimony

"Penned in the driver’s seat, Wilson couldn’t reach his mace or baton. So he said drew his .40-caliber handgun, yelling, “Stop, I’m going to shoot you.”

“You’re too much of a PU$$Y to shoot me,” Brown reportedly said and reached for Wilson’s gun.

The officer said he thought Brown was going to kill him as they wrestled for control of the gun." Chat Icon
