Did there NEED to be a trial ?
He strong arm robbed a store. You can't say it didn't happen, its on video.
And it definitely contradicts the false narrative of a Gentle Giant minding his own business.
Without that video there's no telling what the media would have done to that LIE about him being innocent good kid that had just been accepted to " College ".
Where was the vetting of the media's narrative that this guy was some innocent Gentle Giant who was gunned down in cold blood ?
I mean there was no trial for the officer and people made the decision the day it happened.
Releasing that video was a brilliant move on the part of the Ferguson Police force
Because it DESTROYED the myth that this was just a innocent Kid minding his own business.
A myth that if not for the video would have been perpetuated and embellished to the point of " justifying " more violence, more riots and more looting
The releasw of the video pissed off the race hustlers too.
Thats indication enough that ut was the right thing to do.
Fine upstanding people usually do not hang with such a criminal element unless they themselves are also of the same ilk, and hence, really are not fine upstanding individuals.
