The Grand Jury in Ferguson has made their decision. I am assuming that the people of the jury, having seen evidence and heard testimony for weeks, know a lot more about the case than I do – including whether there was probable cause for an indictment. Did the shooting seem fishy? Well, the media reports seem to make it appear so, but I don’t know everything about this case and don’t pretend to.
Nationwide, we have seen an increase in the number of killings of young black men by police officers… or have we? Is this just a question of the media building up a non-issue for political effect? Once again, I don’t know.
One thing I know for sure, breaking into stores and burning cars will not solve the political and sociological issues at hand. If this is what our communication had devolved to, I pity us all.
I am an optimist. I choose to believe that racist bastards are a very small minority in our population. I believe that corrupt cops are a small percentage of the whole. I also believe that we all have to be vigilant against such tyranny.
Peace be with you all.
