    Can't vote, none of the options represent me.

    OP, how hard is it to just say "Yes" or "No" ?

    Re: Was justice served in Ferguson?

    "Justice was served.

    Now it is time to put down the rabid dogs who burned and rioted. I think we should begin with the left-media who fanned the flames. We need to add in the race-baiters. And then we need to go after the rioters and the ones who set fire to buildings. When the last one is fined and jailed with those who lost their property restored by a hefty tax on liberals, progressives, national socialists, international socialists, the attorney general, and the Father of Lies, then, and only then will justice be served a second time."

    What did you object to?

    The left-media fanned the flames prior to the riots and burnings.

    The race-baiters fanned the flames prior to the riots and burnings.

    The rioters looted and destroyed other people's property. They need to be run down, arrested, tried, fined and put into prisons. Those who burned down buildings need to be run down, arrested, tried, fined and put into prisons.

    The people who had their property destroyed by left-wing, democratic, Obama supporters (or do you think most of them voted for Romney?) should be made whole by a hefty tax on all leftists.

    But before we even get into why, you'll need to get past the "put down the rabid dogs" bit and quit overplaying your prejudice hand.
    Am I prejudiced against rabid dogs? I suppose I am. It is time to put them down.

    You need to get past yourself.

    "The town of Furgeson got justice in its grand jury decision.

    The ones who lost property to looters must now have their justice.

    I propose we tax every self-proclaimed Progressive, liberal, ...authoritarian statist, including the Father of Lies and the attorney general until everyone has their property rebuilt."

    Do you think I care if the mob does not think it got justice? Do you think I care if you don't think justice was served by a just application of the law? Justice does not rest upon the whims of left-mobs.

    Was justice served in Ferguson with Wilson being cleared?
    No, only because in a situation like this there is no justice. Someone died who may not have deserved it, but it's impossible to prove.

    Because we'll never know the whole truth, justice cannot truly be served.

    This is drivel.

    Justice does not require the whole truth. What counts is a thug robbed a store, then attacked a police officer. He died because of his actions. A grand jury of citizens "heard" the evidence and made the right call.

    Now we need justice for those who had their property destroyed by the left-mob rabid dogs who looted, who burned buildings or encouraged their actions.

    Re: Was justice served in Ferguson?

    A finding of probable cause is a very low standard of proof. It doesn't take very much evidence to find that there is "probably" cause to believe a crime might have been committed. There were not 9 racist jurors on that panel. And if a jury of 12 couldn't even get to "he probably did it," then how would a trial jury ever get to "he almost definately did it" which is required to satisfy the reasonable doubt burden.

    A GJ almost never gets ALL the evidence. They had everything the prosecutor could provide, and there is no opportunity for a defense to refute any of it. There was clearly just no case here.
    "We need to ask some very tough questions of the senator from Illinois. It's not enough to be black, it's not enough to be articulate, it's not enough to be eloquent and a media darling. The only question will be how deaf an ear, or how blind an eye will people turn in order to turn a frog into a prince." -Eddie Huff

    Re: Was justice served in Ferguson?

    Remember that I live in rural New Zealand when you read this... what happened?

    I read Wilson was not charged by the Grand Jury... was there rioting after because I can't tell if what I am reading is from before.

    No. Lawless rioters causing shame and embarrassment to every decent black American need to be arrested and prosecuted.
