Grad Jury just reached a decision. Waiting on the announcement. Tick, tock, tick, tock.......

My prediction (from their POV)

A) Riot and looting in celebration of justice is being done.
B) Riot and looting because of injustice.

I don't conceive a situation in which there won't be rioting and looting.

I don't conceive a situation where you are wrong.

Yep, one person already shot themselves in the head and died. Little premature on that one. At least wait for the jury decision.

probably one of the agitators that Holder and Sharpton bussed in.

If I lived in the area I think I'd try and remember to show appreciation to the 2nd amendment.

Looks like it's pretty bad. Fires everywhere out of control, looting out of control, lots of shots fired, at least one person shot.

Exactly.

Hard to feel compassion for a group that shows at every opportunity that they are what they're being (unfairly?) portrayed as.

Apparently there are not enough fires and looting, or as extreme a race-war as that state senator was calling for, so ....time to bring in FABULOUS AL SHARPTON!!!! You go, Al!! Fan the flames, buddy! MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Happy Thanksgiving to grievance mongers everywhere. Just remember to repeat after AL:

"America is a horrible place"
"You can't make it in America (like me) if you have dark skin (unless you are hispanic, asian, indian, or black - and work hard)" (Ha, Ha - you know good old Al would NEVER add those parts in parentheses, otherwise, he'd be OUT OF WORK!!! Ironic, isn't it?)

Good Old Al - If there's something wrong with America, he's it - all rolled up into one sanctimonious package of excrement in a $1,000 suit.

Al Sharpton and people like him are examples of evil forces in our world. What a horrible person he is. What horrible people are these race hustlers who enrich themselves by selling a message to blacks that they can't make it, that the country is against them, that they can't get a fair shake. Meanwhile their buddies in Congress have for the past 5 decades put policies in place to undermine the independence and health of the black community. self-fulfilling prophesy. terrible, terrible people.

I heard some of the Grand Jury testimony offered by Officer Wilson and was told there is collaborating eyewitness testimony verifying his sworn testimony that he was rightfully in fear for his life. I believe 33(Wilson) pages of asked and answered testimony. Holder, Obama, Missouri Gov, all had the opportunity to review it, and could of asked to speak to the community beforehand to reassure, comfort, and ease the tensions, but ALL failed to do so. What they did was announce well beforehand that a GJ decision or lack of one was going to be announced on a Monday night. Why not announce it, with an hour or two preparation, on a Sunday morning? Why, BO's televised announcement wasn't one which spoke of an open and honest investigation that couldn't support charges? Just as Travon Martin, or the Beer Summit, where O couldn't help himself, America is a unjust, racist, country.
Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen prove that they are insured, but doesn't require every person to prove they are a citizen. Many who can't prove they are citizens will receive free insurance from those that are citizens.

You think they'll go after him for inciting a riot? Of course not but idiots like this should get sued by every business that got torched because of this.

I love how Michael Brown is now some sort of local "hero" and a rally cry for rights of the common people everywhere. Somewhere along the way, they lost what being free and being an American is supposed to be about.

Looks like a pretty clear case to me as the story comes out through the justice system instead of using the word of whoever blabs to CNN first.
