    LOL yes it is.
    I think you need to learn more about it than I do.

    it is a pre-trial to determine if there is enough evidence to support a real trial.
    it very much is a court of law.

    That's not what they said, they said that they couldn't find enough evidence to get a conviction.

    That doesn't = innocent.

    Basically we can ignore your view on Darren Wilson as its merely based on pure hate.


    You can believe whatever you want to believe, we don't have thought police.

    The question for the DOJ was not whether his shooting Brown was legal or illegal. Rather, it was whether it was a civil rights violation as defined in federal law. Even if it opinion of the DOJ was that the shooting was murder, that would NOT make a federal case for criminal civil rights violation.

    Also false in this thread is suggesting the officer has been found not guilty. There's been no verdict whatsoever. There is no statute of limitations on murder either. So at no time is it accurate to claim he was found "not guilty" or found innocent.

    A grand jury no-billing someone does NOT create double jeopardy. Technically, this can hang over the Officer's head the rest of his life because there has been no verdict.

    It sure as hell doesn't mean guilty either... If a cop who defends himself against a violent attacker is punished in any way for doing so, that would be miscarriage of justice on a monumental scale and an embarrassment to everything this country stands for... or used to stand for,

    Apparently the civil rights case is closing on the Ferguson outrage of Wilson's shooting of Brown. That the DoJ is not pursuing this is to me... surprising. Granted it's very difficult to prove firstly, and second there has to be all sorts of qualifying events that - according to reports - do not seem to be present for a civil rights prosecution to move forward.

    First the grand jury acquitted Wilson of any wrong doing, now the Feds are saying a civil rights prosecution is not going to happen. That however doesn't preclude a wrongful death suit to be filed against Wilson, which has a much lower level of qualification to find fault. That may be the next shoe to drop.
    Nor should there be any charges.

    This was not murder, nor civil rights violation...Next it'll be no civil liability found either...So, all we have was an opportunity for looting, and mayhem....Well, that was fun...now we can move on.

    Do remember that to MSNBC and Sharpton the opposite applies.

    Indeed every white male who is accused of racism must be presumed guilty immediately and despite any evidence must be found guilty or there will be riots.

    And there in lies my beef. Seemingly whenever anyone disagrees with someone, the immediate cry of racism is raised to silence any opposition, regardless of the legitimacy of the policy disagreement.
