The lack of trial for Darren Wilson following his homicide of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. does not surprise me at all. It does however break my heart just a little bit more. Before any asshole comes bopping on in here to tell me the obvious, that Wilson is "innocent" of Homicide, no that shithead is not. He has been exonerated from the legal charge of Homicide, but y'all had best brush up on the language. Homicide is the deliberate killing of another human being, and that is to the very f'ing letter what Wilson did. He drew his sidearm and shot an unarmed human to death, then calling for 'backup' with no thought to the human being he had just slaughtered on a street. That's homicide. A grand jury has now stated that he will not be held accountable for that shooting, but that does not change the fact that he killed a person, and other persons that he couldn't kill are now dealing with the loss of Michael Brown. That is heart breaking.
What makes me angry and sick is that Wilson likened Brown to a "demon". He looked like a DEMON, Wilson claimed. This from a 'police officer', one who is supposed to protect us from crime, not from his fear fantasies. A DEMON. You don't have to be a genius to see that as code for a pissed off black man. Why on Earth would anybody give a gun to such a chickenshit and charge him with protecting human beings when he has delusions of DEMONS? Throughout this lengthy 'investigation' process, I have rationally tried to give Wilson the benefit of the doubt. He was afraid for his well being. He was threatened and attacked. There is no doubt left. Wilson was being a coward, terrifed of his DEMONS, and he shot a young man to death because he was a coward with a gun. The portion of humanity not terrified of demonic dark skinned folk, or who really don't believe in 'demons' are left distinctly disastisfied with that bullshit ass-covering from a coward.
According to what is obviously the most corrupt 'prosecuting' attorney we know currently serving in the US (he was prosecuting the victim, not the demonologist who shot him), Wilson had "severe contusions" on his face, from the attack by Brown. Severe. Right ... Anybody who has a brain cell left can see that Ezra Klein is absolutely correct. Wilson's story, and McCulloch's support of it, is unbelievable, improbable, utter bullshit. Peytin Manning gets a worse "contusion" on his forehead from wearing a helmet every week than Wilson got from Brown. Seriously, and with all temperence, is a fucking pathetic and light bruise a reason to shoot someone to death? To the Grand Jury in Missouri, apparently so.
So, Ferguson blows up over night. Rioting, looting, arson ... I would suggest revolting, as in revolution. Chickenshit backwardsass 2nd amendment cowards who've been talking smack about using their violence against the Negro in the White House are now suddenly all about law and order, happily telling those dark-skinned folk how they *NEED* to accept the Grand Jury's verdict. No, they really fucking don't. For reasons that are sooo goddamned obvious, these people should be pissed off. They've just been told that the country doesn't serve them, it serves white order, where terrified little pasty demon believers get to shoot young black men with impunity and claim that being bitch slapped less than most frat boys have been can be adequately responded to with homicide.
Aaron Flint posted the stupid tweet of the day (if not the decade):
That's about the dumbest fricking thing ever written. No "American" should act like that, except the people who dressed as 'injuns' and threw tea in a harbor. Or those who instigated a riot and caused the Boston Massacre. Or those who have rebelled against oppresive rule since July 4 1776. Dumbass 'journalists' like Flint don't get to tell the people how to behave. They will behave as free people will, including burning upside down flags to show that our nation is in serious trouble when cowards are given lordship over us, and military might defends their ability to do so. We have us a problem, people. The US is becoming an oppresive police state that favors cowardice and pale skin. I sympathize with Ferguson, tonight. My heart is broken for their loss, and all of our own.
