Federal charges unlikely for Darren Wilson in Ferguson case, officials say - CNN.comOriginally Posted by CNN
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.
