Today's Rant - A Message to Michael Brown's Stepfather(CNN) -- Michael Brown's stepfather consoled the dead teen's distraught mother after Monday's controversial grand jury announcement and then turned to the crowd of demonstrators, saying, "Burn this motherf---er down" and "Burn this bitch down," according to a New York Times video.
Look, Mr. Brown, I do feel that police shoot innocent people, but your son was not innocent. He stole cigars, and then punched a cop. Did Officer Wilson use excessive force? We will never know, because witnesses at the grand jury proceeding either lied, and were caught and had to change their stories, or didn't know what they were talking about, and when confronted with that, changed their story. It is very possible that Officer Wilson committed manslaughter or even murder, but witnesses against Wilson wanted him convicted so badly, that they muddied the waters by giving false information. Now, before you start calling me a racist (Even though I live in an almost 100% black neighborhood), look at the evidence. It speaks for itself. Is the evidence accurate? We will never know because of all the false information that was given by liars, and also by well meaning people who bought into a spin that was shown to be false. Just look at the evidence supplied by the witnesses. It is so polluted that there is no way that the grand jury could have arrived at the truth. And that, my friends, is why Officer Wilson was no-billed.
To the protesters who are burning down Ferguson..... Physician, heal thyself. Yes, racism exists, but it's existence is on both sides of the color divide. Before you can make America a better nation, you must put aside your own hatred. It takes two to tango, and if you can't recognize that simple fact, then I am sure that the KKK has some white robes you can wear, because you are no different than they are. Yes, it hurt me say that, but I have never promised that I would gloss over the truth for anybody, whether friend or foe. If you don't like what I am saying, you can always choose to ignore me, but this festering scab will always remain, until people, white and black alike, face this demon which will eventually destroy us all, if not immediately dealt with.
See 'ya in Fallujah, folks.
Thanx for listening.
