    I am not sure if you have ever taken a statistics class, but you may want to rethink that last statement. Numbers don't lie.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    And he still has done nothing wrong.

    He has been exonerated.

    That speaks volumes about his detractors.

    Exonerated?

    Hardly, there still might be a civil lawsuit, where the family may be awarded monetary damages. Sometimes they call it wrongful death.

    If that is the definition of being exonerated, I will agree with you.

    You are saying to don't need to support any of your statements below? You're just assuming them to be true? How ignorant.

    I don't get why it is so difficult for people to admit that Brown was a thug. You have VIDEO evidence of him exhibiting violent, thug-like behavior, and yet you are so quick to give him a pass. But when you have no evidence, in fact large evidence to the contrary, of Wilson being a murderer, you are so quick to accuse him as an evil, racist, wanton slaughterer of other races. Why? Can you not be objective?

    Given time and Wilson might well be joining Brown, time will tell.

    I would like to take a look at that NYT reporter.
    I noticed at the brief presser when the Prosecutor announced the G.J. finding, the "journalists" who asked the most confrontational (read: stupid) questions were irritating young skulls full of much types with their own agenda.

    Was the different approach used by police sufficient to stop rioting, looting and burning after the press hyped the "hands up, don't shoot" lie? What people feel is largely based on what the media spews out and how their peers seem to react. When one decides that unarmed teen shot by police officer equals obvious misuse of force or decides that black unarmed teen shot by armed white adult equals obvious racism then we have a serious problem. No longer are facts about a specific case needed; just whip out that the evil police and/or evil racist card(s) and start hellping yourself to free stuff from your neighborhood stores as reparations for that feeling of victim of evil that must be aimed at you too.

    So if I kicked you out of your home...would you call that a civil rights abuse? Because that is what happened to Wilson. He can't live in his home. And he was found innocent.
