Wilson’s case was heard in state court, not federal, so the numbers aren’t directly comparable. Unlike in federal court, most states, including Missouri, allow prosecutors to bring charges via a preliminary hearing in front of a judge instead of through a grand jury indictment. That means many routine cases never go before a grand jury. Still, legal experts agree that, at any level, it is extremely rare for prosecutors to fail to win an indictment.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
From your link, it looks like it isn't rare at all to see a non-indictment of a police officer. It seems to be the overwhelming reality.
That's important to note because there is no data regarding the racial make-up of those involved in the non-indictment of Police officers. It looks like Police officers are simply less likely to be indicted than regular people.
that being said, it would be interesting to see if there is a racial connection with Police indictments/non-indictments.

They simply don't have enough men to do the job. Unfortunately some businesses have been terribly damaged, and if they were lucky, only have to replace some glass.
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
Moderator's Warning: Folks, going to make this clear...
Trying my best to keep things orderly in here. Every action that is being taken is not necessarily happening in an in thread warning. Largely keeping in thread warnings as a means to deal with keeping the thread on track more than dealing with clear violations of flaming/hate speech/slurs/baiting/etc. Don't assume that something you don't see done is just ignored, and please report anything you think is a problem to assist with making sure everything is seen.
Let's stick to the topic and continue the largely good job everyones doing in keeping things civil during this hectic situation
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Anyone hear about the road block on I-44?
