    It’s Incredibly Rare For A Grand Jury To Do What Ferguson’s Just Did | FiveThirtyEight

    "According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. attorneys prosecuted 162,000 federal cases in 2010, the most recent year for which we have data. Grand juries declined to return an indictment in 11 of them."
    That's a 99.9932% indictment rate. Think on that for a moment.

    "legal experts agree that, at any level, it is extremely rare for prosecutors to fail to win an indictment.

    “If the prosecutor wants an indictment and doesn’t get one, something has gone horribly wrong,” said Andrew D. Leipold, a University of Illinois law professor who has written critically about grand juries. “It just doesn’t happen.”

    Cases involving police shootings, however, appear to be an exception. As my colleague Reuben Fischer-Baum has written, we don’t have good data on officer-involved killings. But newspaper accounts suggest, grand juries frequently decline to indict law-enforcement officials. A recent Houston Chronicle investigation found that “police have been nearly immune from criminal charges in shootings” in Houston and other large cities in recent years. In Harris County, Texas, for example, grand juries haven’t indicted a Houston police officer since 2004; in Dallas, grand juries reviewed 81 shootings between 2008 and 2012 and returned just one indictment.

    Are you saying that it's the Media's fault for looting, vandalism and shots being fired at police?

    Partially, yes. And good job on conveniently ignoring the police's role in this.

    Their only role in this is being absent from the area. The rest of it is purely due to the brutality of the mob.

    The police didn't respond until they were getting shot at, what would you of done? Set there and let them?

    Also, you can say that the media has been saying this is gonna happened, but that doesn't mean the idiots should do it. If I say your going to jump of the bridge, I doubt you are dumb enough to go do it. Besides, we knew what they would do because this is what they did before. Didn't take a genius to figure this was going to end badly. Hell even Obama said that some people would do this.

    The cops are keeping this from turning into outright mayhem and carnage. The biggest question is, can they keep up with the escalation.

    Not shocking sadly. But to be fair, there have also been CNN reporters threatened as well.
