    It may not matter however, I just heard Attorney General Eric Holder announce that there would be an investigation. Hopefully they will indict this murdering cop.
    This is what tyranny looks like.

    Hmmm. Google, it appears, is NOT your friend:

    Al Sharpton, who is always first on the scene when a black person is killed by a white – or, in the case of St. Trayvon of the Blessed Hoodie, a white Hispanic – described Brown as a “gentle giant,” too. Over at Daily Kos, a writer described St. Michael as a “big guy who his family called their ‘Gentle Giant’…built to be a high school football player – direct from central casting – but Mike was too timid for the sport. According to friends and family, he had never been in a fight in his life.” CNN, The Daily Mail – all of them called him a “gentle giant.”

    No. I am not saying that.

    In the end, and it may be a long time coming, it won't be enough. No civilization that oppressed enough of its citizens has ever ended in anything but warfare and, ultimately, revolution.

    It's par for the course though. Especially with this administration. They seem to be rather selective about the laws they choose to enforce and rather nasty to those who choose to enforce them anyway.

    I agree with you that this no-bill on indictment is suspicious, but "homicide" merely means death by another person. It doesn't mean criminal homicide, necessarily. A homicide can be legal, as in the case of self-defense. So don't read too much into what the coroner said. It merely put in writing what everyone knew already.

    It was easy. It took two seconds to find dozens of stories. :-)

    Try again:

    Michael Brown remembered as a 'gentle giant' : News

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
