November 2014

It happened: the Grand Jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown, dubbed a “gentle giant” by the media. Now, I’m no supporter of police brutality, but from what I see of the evidence, there is ample proof that Officer Wilson was well within his rights to shoot and even kill Brown. I’m not even talking about doing so as a part of his official duties, this looks like a case of self-defense.

While the initial sensationalized reports out of Ferguson at the time of the shooting made it sound like Wilson was a racist using his position to wage a personal war against the blacks, more and more evidence has come forth to show otherwise. Probably the most compelling piece of evidence was the autopsy report, which backs up Wilson’s testimony that Brown tried to take his gun.
