All we have right now is a tape of him saying some incendiary things. I doubt you could even prove that those who committed said violence even heard him. And even if they did, they still could of chose not to commit the crime. Now had he actually of committed the arson, then I would say he should be punished. But as it stands, locking up a man who was obviously grief-stricken step father for words isn't worth one more night of violence across this country.
    All we have is video evidence so leave him alone? One does not have to prove that anyone acted on those words, although that would likely be quite easy to do (simply grant immunity to a rioter or two). Do you also approve of placing dead or alive bounties on folks?

    You know what TW, you got to ask your question, so before I answer yours, It's only fair you answer mine. How many lives you willing to risk to put a grief-stricken and not remorseful father behind bars? Ten Lives? Twenty Lives? How many millions in property damage are you willing to risk in some crusade for of justice? We're currently sitting on a powder keg right now, and all you seem to want to do is throw a match in and let the whole thing blow.

    Oh I could see that going well. Sue some guy who's probably on minimum wage a long with a random internet activist. I'm sure they'll recoup their losses...

    I am willing to enforce the law and not to appease rioters, looters or arsonists. Why have a federal DOJ that investigates civil rights violations if it is not a civil rights violation to incite riots or call for dead or alive bounties? Calling for cross burnings = crime, calling for store burnings = okey dokey.

    You still didn't answer my question TW, so let me asking it agian, how many lives are you willing to sacrifice at the altar of justice so you could put a grief-stricken parent behind bars?

    As many as it takes. BTW, how many lives were lost by not having done so?

    Re: Should Michael Brown's Step father be prosecuted?

    I think the video that has been released of Head telling others he is going to start a riot, then to have another video with him standing up on a platform chanting "Burn this Bitch Down", clearly shows purposeful incitement and not just a grief stricken step-father.
