    If that is the definition of being exonerated, I will agree with you.
    Yes, legally he has been exonerated.

    Any moron can sue anybody civilly without cause or reason.

    Darren Wilson: Attorneys discuss his time in hiding - CNN.com

    This is a joke. The guy cannot live a normal life because he did the RIGHT thing. What a joke. I wish we could prosecute those who posted his address. Even if it was redacted.
    Wilson will never return to cut the other half of the lawn. He may not choose to leave Ferguson, but the city and the PD will choose to relieve him of duty.

    Wilson has become a liability. One the city can no longer afford. If he stayed he would be part to lawsuit after lawsuit and the city wants no part. Wilson has cost the city millions and they can not afford anymore.

    No municipality or PD will touch wilson with a 10' pole. He is a walking lawsuit.

    He doesn't have to leave Ferguson, but he will have to leave.

    Here's hoping, and I'm sure you agree, that Wilson won't forfeit his life for doing his job.

    Exonerated is used to mean to reverse a determination of law. No bill of indictment. No bill is written on the Bill of Indictment issued by the DA. There is no rule against a second indictment.

    But since the DA was not seeking an indictment, either a "No Bill" or "exoneration" is a moot point.

    Amazing, isn't it, that people can sit down and look at several tapes of an incident, interview dozens of witnesses, listen to several experts, then take several weeks to decide what a cop should have done in the couple of seconds he had to make the decision.

    I wouldn't support violence against Wilson regardless. Everyone doesn't agree with me however. Wilson will probably be alright though. In a while some other news story will surpass this one and Ferguson will be forgotten like all the rest.

    That would be true, IF perhaps the officer only had a seconds to make decisions.

    But if the officer made a series of bad decisions spanning minutes that culminated in a one last bad decision;THEN that could be determined in a court of law with two advocate attorneys providing the jury with the facts to make an informed judgement.

    Second, you have no basis to decide if it is all his fault as you do not know what went on, unless of course you are witness #10. The fact that an unarmed man was killed by a cop should beg the question amongst reasonable thinkers as to whether his death was necessary. Of course, that would something reasonable thinkers. I appreciate the fact that they are many that just don't think too deeply.
    He didn't rob the convenience store? That's what I'm talking aboit. Lying to cover up for Brown doesn't help anyone, especially the black community.

    So the cop isn't supposed to confront law breakers in black areas? Wow! I had no idea that affermative action extended to following the law.

    Presumably we are still talking about the Ferguson incident, but no Wilson did not have several minutes to make a decision.

    What we do know and most agree on is that Wilson stopped his car to address a couple of kids walking in the middle of the street. Wilson then drove a few feet then realized the description of the location and perps on a BOLO fit the situation where hewas. Wilson then backed up and was attack in his car, getting off one non lethal shot and suffering injuries. We know that because Brown's blood was found in the car and Wilson had injuries consistent with that account. Brown then wandered off, turned, and ran back toward Wilson and got shot for his troubles. All the evidence and the reliable witness accounts point in that direction.

    Total time elapsed could not have been more than a minute, unless you believe that Brown and Wilson both stopped for a smoke before proceeding.

    The "should have gone to a jury" is just a cop out. The level required in a GJ is far less than the level in a criminal trial. Additionally, there is nothing to stop the prosecutor from proceeding if he thinks the GJ is wrong. The GJ role is largely advisory.

    It is amazing to me the lengths that certain people will go to to prove a point they don't have. The short memory people fail to remember the Zimmerman case . The rabble rousers got their way, went to trial, and a few million dollars later the jury decided the original decision was correct. The legal system has worked in both cases. It's just that some people refuse to believe the facts if they fail to prove their beliefs.

    None of which has much to do with my original point. That Monday morning quarterbacks can take weeks to decide what a cop should have done in his split second decision.
