Last night, Americans sat in front of our television sets waiting for the verdict in the Michael Brown Case. This was not a trial, although many had already convicted Officer Darren Wilson before deliberations even begun.
The verdict would come from the Grand Jury, who was hearing evidence in this controversial case. What a Grand Jury does, and I can tell you from first hand experience, having been a Juror on both a Federal Grand Jury and a State Grand Jury, is review evidence with the prosecuting attorney, who presents witnesses testifying on behalf of the Prosecution, in an effort to figure out whether the Federal or State Government has enough evidence to take the accused to trial. This is called handing down an indictment.
In the case of officer Darren Wilson, accused of shooting young thug Michael Brown in cold blood, it seems like the President of the United States and his administration already had Officer Wilson convicted before the Grand Jury even begin to deliberate.
What bothered me and most Americans, was the fact that there was a video which showed the character of Michael Brown, as he plainly stole cigarillos from the local convenience store, strong- arming the Asian owner who tried to stop him, pushing him into a potato chip rack. Even the most ignorant among us knew the reason that Michael was stealing those cigarillos. It was to smoke something other than tobacco.
Obama even sent down Attorney General Eric Holder to try to intimidate the Grand Jury into indicting Officer Wilson, or at least to put pressure on them to move in that direction. In fact, the Obama Administration even sent three representatives to the funeral of a young thug.
The best laid plans of mice and often go awry – Robert Burns
USA Today reports that
A white police officer will not face charges for fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager in a case that set off violent protests and racial unrest throughout the nation.
A St. Louis County grand jury declined to indict officer Darren Wilson, 28, for firing six shots in an August confrontation that killed 18-year-old Michael Brown, St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch said Monday night.
The decision had been long awaited and followed rioting that resembled war-zone news footage in this predominantly black suburb of St. Louis.
Prosecutor McCullough made the announcement in an unusual nighttime presentation in a courtroom. He spoke at length about media coverage of the case and what he called the unreliability of eyewitness accounts. He said the grand jury weighed evidence and testimony before concluding there was no probable cause to indict the officer.
“The duty of the grand jury is to separate fact from fiction,” McCulloch said.
He said prosecuting attorneys presented five potential indictments to the grand jury, and all were rejected.
A traditional Chinese curse states,
May you live in interesting times.
And, we most certainly do.
Something that puzzles all of us is why someone would want to riot over the death of a young thug obviously engaging in illegal activities, who according to the number one medical examiner in the country , Dr Michael Baden, was shot while attempting to climb into the car with Officer Wilson and take his gun away from him. Michael was shot in the top of the head and the front, not in the back trying to run away, or strictly in the chest, with his hands held high, as the original claims made by “witnesses” were documented.
So, why have these people been rioting?
Could it be because of the poverty they’ve experienced? No. There are a lot of poverty-stricken Americans who have never acted in such a reprehensible manner.
No, I believe it is another reason.
Spurred on by President Barack Hussein Obama, who met with the organizers in private on November 5th, these rioters are after something else. They are after a “radical change” in America.

“The fact is, in too many parts of this country, a deep distrust exists between law enforcement and communities of color. Some of this is the result of the legacy of racial discrimination in this country. And this is tragic because nobody needs good policing more than poor communities with higher crime rates,” Obama said, highlighting the need for criminal justice reform. “We need to recognize that this is not just an issue for Ferguson, this is an issue for America.”
Already, there are reports of possible gunshots in Ferguson among large crowds. Obama asked police in the area “to show care and restraint in managing peaceful protests that may occur.” While saying that police have a “tough job” to do, he asked that “as they do their jobs in the coming days, they need to work with the community, not against the community, to distinguish the handful of people who may use the grand jury’s decision as an excuse for violence.”
Just as the Bolsheviks provided cover for Vladimir Lenin in the Russian Revolution, so are these modern-day Bolsheviks providing a Vanguard for the implementation of the promise that Obama made us when he was running for president, that he would “radically change” America.
You see, it does not matter to the animals out there rioting, that Michael Brown was a thug. The color of his skin matters to them more than the content of his character.
These misbegotten individuals who are expressing themselves through violence are doing so in order to gain something that their political ideology never has been able to. They want an overthrow of the “Establishment”. Just as her parents and grandparents before them sat around smoking dope in the Dean’s Office, these rioters want something that the majority of Americans do not. They want America to become a socialist state.
Fortunately for you, me, our children, and our grandchildren, no matter how loud they shout, or how violently they riot, these protesters, paid and unpaid, will not achieve their goal.
The concept of America, as documented by our Founding Fathers, and as paid for by the blood of previous generations of Americans, is as eternal as the sky above us.
It is a concept of a Constitutional Republic, based on liberty. And liberty, is freedom…with responsibility.
Neither the Obama Administration nor the rioters will probably understand what I am saying today, but, thank God that the overwhelming majority of Americans still do.
