    I'm on pins and needles about Ferguson right now and my anxiety is really flaring up about it. 20 minute explanation doesn't sound reassuring

    So.... What is the Ferguson community response going to be on this one? It isn't every day a guy just gets away with murder

    If the victim is a minority and murderer a white person, yeah, it kinda does. Just this month a guy got off with a $500 fine for killing a Latino who pulled into his driveway by mistake.

    I hate when people say murder when all Wilson has done so far was a homicide. It is up to the grand jury to determine if a murder occurred and they felt that there wasn't enough evidence to prove that.

    Seriously people read the laws and find out how murder is assigned before going off on pure emotion instead of facts.

    If you are gonna shoot, shoot. Don't talk

    That 'prosecutor' sounded like a damn defense attorney.

    It's a shame but I it played about the way I expected it to... no indictment.

    I mean, just wow. The possibility of being convicted in a lengthy trial (ala Zimmerman) is one thing, but he's not even going to be brought up on an indictment charge?

    I'm quite astounded and actually rather speechless. Never thought that the answer would be No.

    Sounds like he used a monkey paw to make a porno story come true.
    Then the curse of the paw eventually killed him.

    When you're a white cop responsible for killing an unarmed black individual you kind of do.

    Up here we just had an incident involving a cop accidentally killing an unarmed man in an apartment complex I don't see this one getting off.

    How dare Demon Rin use the word murder in the normal sense and not the legal sense. People should talk in technical terms absolutely all the time. It might confuse the linguistically deficient among us you see.

    Also "a jury did a thing therefore do not to argue".
    Have you ever been in a jury? You sound like you're talking about a flawless computer program.

    Please don't share photos of Mike Brown's body out in the open without even a spoiler tag, or period, because his parents requested people don't and it's really upsetting to look at, and this has been an incredibly upsetting night

    I know everyone is focusing in Ferguson but remember the facebook video that had how they forcibly evacuated El Zócalo with tear gas? It's back online.

    The justice system in America (though it's not the most exclusively fucked up system in America) is fucked up, but how is it going to get any better if there's so many awful people out there who take advantage of this horrible situation to loot and vandalize shit. I've been watching CNN since I got home which has been an hour now.. good fucking lord. I'm sure these are people just taking advantage of the chaos.. but nothing about this makes anything better.

    Mods do you mind putting the image of Mike Brown in spoiler tags in the post a few above?? Or delete it, because honestly it was wished by the family to not be passing them around anymore.

    It's not everyone.
    In the video's I could see people trying to stop it and they mentioned the protesters against this behavior too.

    No as someone who is about to be in the criminal justice field and has to know the definitions behind how a murder can actually be viewed as manslaughter or justified homicide. Murder is the killing of a person with malice involved, whicch means the person is planning on killing another person.

    Did Darren Wilson drive up to Michael Brown and decide to kill him? No, and that right there is a big indicator that a murder did not occur. Now I wouldn't be surprised if the grand jury was told to keep a form of manslaughter involved, but they didn't feel with the evidence that was met either. Therefore no murder or manslaughter or wrongful death occurred.

    In the end, people say a murderer got free, but I can say that a officer who was under attack felt his life was threatened so he had to shoot to stop Michael Brown and diffuse the threat.

    Also, the reason why Wilson is standing over Brown is because he had to handcuff Brown to secure him. It is common procedure to do that after EVERY shooting.

    If you are gonna shoot, shoot. Don't talk
