Anyone else here furious at the jury's decision?
For those who don't know, 100-odd days ago, in the town of Ferguson, a white cop murdered a black kid named Mike Brown. Instead of punishing the cop, the law enforcement took brutal measures to cover up the crime, discredit witnesses, basically everything they could to make sure no one would do anything about it. The citizens peacefully protested, and the cops retaliated with tear gas, rubber bullets, pepper spray and the breaking of the First Amendment time and time again. As for Darren Wilson? Instead of punishment, he was put on paid leave and actually earned THOUSANDS of dollars in "donations" from people who think he was right in murdering a kid.
I am particularly angry tonight because the Grand Jury (most of whom were white old men) decided that social media accounts (including first-hand video footage) don't count as evidence, so Darren Wilson went free.
You heard me. A murderer got to walk off scot-free.
So yeah, I am furious right now.
