I wasn’t going to comment on the Furguson Grand Jury decision, but after watching the reaction the people in Furguson, cities around the country and the comments of many black leaders, I do have a few words to say. First, it is sad to see once again, a city get torn up by the reactions of black people. I am old enough to remember and with a good amount of detail, the riots in the Watts district of L.A. a half century ago. It is sad that here we are more than 49 years later with our country headed by a black man, and our racial problems are even worse!
What I hear black leaders saying is that there was no justice because the Furguson Grand Jury did not find evidence enough to support five possible charges against officer Darron Wilson in the shooting death of 18 year old Michael Brown. Hey people! There was
justice and our legal system worked even though it seems to have not satisfy the court of black public opinion.
Last, one continuing mistake most of the reporting press continues to make is describing Brown as is a “teenager”. He was in fact a full size man standing 6-ft., 4-inches tall and weighing in at nearly 300 lbs.
