    Re: Ferguson LIVE announcement video feed links here [W:60, 267]

    Fascinating night last night. My thoughts:

    1. Props to that prosecutor. He was articulate and had to suffer through the painfully idiotic questions from the audience.
    2. It sounds like quite a few "witnesses" lied. Eye witnesses lie and can be prejudiced. Evidence can't.
    3. The display in Ferguson after the announcement was pure, unadulterated filth.
    4. Darren Wilson needs to move himself and his family to another country for his own safety.
    5. It sounds like justice was done.

    It would be interesting to know the vote breakdown but the GJ is one of the most secretive processes in our justice system so we'll never know. Of course, as many times as the Prosecutor said that last night it didn't stop the idiots in the audience from asking him repeatedly. That guy really held himself together. I'm sure he was thinking "You can keep asking me the question 10 times and you'll get the same answer, assclown".
    I think it's also worth pointing out that the demographics of the St. Louis metropolitan area is 76.9% White and 18.1% African American. Therefore with a grand jury that was 9 white and 3 black, it perfectly represented the demographics of the region.

    Why are there riots happening---- are the protesters just pretend followers of Jesus? by their actions--prove it all. God promised---Vengenance is mine said the Lord--so any real follower of Jesus knows justice will occur. thus 0 need for riots---- pretend followers need riots.

    Justice was done, with one exception. The officer now fears for his and his family's safety. That to me is pretty sick.

    I stayed up pretty late to watch all this unfold and was reminded precisely why I even Obama said "minority communities need more law enforcement than anybody." This was nothing but an evening of lunacy.

    I feel awful for the officer and I really feel for his wife and his family. I'm a mother....I can't imagine seeing posts and tweets and shout outs to kill him and people acting like monsters as they did last night all because the evidence wasn't there to bring charges against him.

    It's a sick and twisted world we live in that this is going on.

    Rudy giuliani said the same thing once and people called him racist.
