Breaking: No Indictment For Officer Darren Wilson In Michael Brown Shooting

Breaking: No Indictment For Officer Darren Wilson In Michael Brown Shooting

Ferguson (United States) (AFP) – The U.S. policeman who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in the Missouri town of Ferguson, triggering weeks of racially-charged unrest, will not face charges, the St Louis County prosecutor said.

Robert McCulloch told reporters that a grand jury had reviewed the evidence gathered about the August shooting and “determined that no probable cause exists to file any charge against Officer Wilson.”

The family of slain black teen Michael Brown said they were “profoundly disappointed” by the grand jury’s decision, but called for calm.

“We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions,” the Brown family said in a statement. “While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change.”

  • Really? We can’t even get an indictment — can’t even DEBATE whether someone is guilty or innocent in a court of law — whenever somebody kills a black kid?

    This is pathetic beyond words. My advice to all minorities living in Missouri: Get out right now. Like, literally right now: Pack up your things and relocate to a blue state Oregon Trail style if you have to. If you can’t get those sumbitches to acknowledge you as real people with real rights, force them to give up one of their Congressional seats when they’re not allowed to count you in the census anymore.

    • A thug( enter color ie black, white, brown, yellow, or purple) robs and assaults a store clerk, then assaults a police officer, while trying to take his weapon, and is killed in the process. That should be the end of it. You were wanting to lynch an innocent man even before there were any facts. You got your grand jury, and they found no reason to move forward. Now the riots are starting, and the Emperor is most likely sitting with his racist bud, Holder, watching it unfold, eating a large bowl of popcorn, cheering the rioters along. You people are not only sick, but sickening.

      • You were apparently hoping nobody would recognize “thug” as tea-bagger code for “black person,” even though it’s abundantly obvious what you mean by that since you Tory mofos insist on even referring to the President of the United States as a thug.

        Speaking of which, his first response was to call for calm. It was you traitorous bastards that were damn near wetting yourself with glee at the idea of riots (or did you think we’d conveniently forget how you pricks took footage of Canucks fans rioting after Game 7 and tried to pretend it was Miami after the Zimmerman verdict?).

        It’s one thing to return a not guilty verdict on a guy who had all the hallmarks of a criminal, and another thing altogether to deny someone a trial at all. That is what happened with your grand jury: They effectively said “Screw you, we’re not even going to pretend we care that another one of you is dead.” Everything you are ranting about should have come up in a trial, but thanks to the Missouri grand jury, there won’t even be one.

        Maybe things would have been better had Michael Brown been old, white, and armed. I seem to recall you Tory bastards lining up in support of Cliven Bundy, a man who actually was armed and actually was threatening officers.

        The takeaway from this is that you Torys apparently think it’s a crime NOT to be armed and pointing your gun at officers all the time. Because when Cliven Bundy did just that, you Tory traitors fawned all over him. But Michael Brown was unarmed when he was gunned down and yet here you bastards all are again chanting that he deserved it.

        Now it’s time for you Tory whores to crawl back into whatever pit in Hell you spawned out of.

      If that had been a black officer Sharpton and J. Jackson wouldn’t have been there to cause all that trouble. They probably paid for the pathologist that did the autopsy for the Browns. Anything to cause trouble with those two. Michael Brown was a thug just looking for trouble. How is it that a few weeks later a white kid was killed by a black officer and there was nothing said about that. Where was Sharpton then?
