    Re: Reports: Ferguson grand jury has made decision

    I challenge anyone who believes that this grand jury decision is fair to take a couple of hours and sit in any courtroom across America that is handling preliminary hearings and witness the kind of "probable cause" the routinely results in people being "held to answer". I think your eyes would be opened to what the standard of proof that "probable cause" is in the average courtroom.

    The police chief did seem pretty proud that no one was seriously hurt. There was some mention that a lot of the trouble makers were 14 year olds.......which suggests that the Ferguson community needs to do some self reflection on child raising....as well as local tax reform.
    14 year olds?

    Given that logic, the only thing to do would be to hold it until Saturday, Thanksgiving weekend. Errmmm. No, I'd not want that either.

    When's a good time to announce when the riots should commence? Is there really a good time for that?
    If he announced it at 8 am CT on Thursday, November 13th there would still have been rioting and looting, and people would be saying "WTF did he announce it then for?".

    When you want to blame others for the malfeasance being committed in Ferguson right now, any port in a storm will do.

    Wow....you're willing to COMPLETELY ignore Brown's actions prior to his death based on subjective generalizations about the " fairness " of GJs.

    I thought you were a lawyer, a preliminary hearing and a grand jury are separate and different things. At least read up on the system if you're going to claim you were a prosecutor.

    No, not at all. Just spend an hour in any courtroom across America and see what kind of evidence constitutes "probable cause" to hold someone to answer by the average judge. I think your eyes would be opened.

    Try doing some research before you tell porkies. Makes them too obvious when you don't.
