    Was justice served in Ferguson?

    In Ferguson the grand jury cleared officer Wilson for defending his life after being assaulted in the line of duty. "Protestors" still rioted destroying minority businesses.



    Was justice served in Ferguson with Wilson being cleared?

    Justice won't be served until every single one of the rioters are charged and behind bars.

    Must your polls always be ONLY "I am a right/left leaning American and I say X"??

    You're leaving me and many others out. I AM an American, but not necessarily one with a concrete lean in all things.

    Justice was served twice in Ferguson. The first act of justice came through the barrel of a gun to a man who assaulted an armed officer. The second act of justice came via the grand jury decision.

    In my polls I attempt to isolate variables. I must make a distinction somewhere, at some point.
    Are you telling me you are precisely in the middle with no lean in any direction? Have you taken one of those political spectrum tests online? That might give you an idea of where you lean.

    For myself, we have to try and have faith that the jury made the right call because it's the basis of the entire legal system.

    In that sense, justice has been done and we have to abide by that decision.

    Yeah, but it didn't work for me in this instance, I had to vote no.

    Im inclined to agree and I find the rioting (destruction of property and violence against innocent minorities) to be an injustice.

    I think that depends on how you define "justice". To me justice means getting treated fairly under the guidelines of our Constitution. In this case, justice was served because the circumstances surrounding the events of that night were presented to and carefully weighed by the Grand Jury whose job it was to decide if charges were to be brought against Darren Wilson or not, based on the evidence they were presented with. So yes, to me, justice was served. Darren Wilson was given the justice he is entitled to under the Constitution.

    If you had a "I don't know option" I would vote for it. You need to learn how to do polls. Yes, No, Other would suffice.
