|R.I.P. Michael Brown|
I don't care how many times Michael Brown's parents appealed for peace and calm, there was no doubt that shit was going to be burned down. There's a whole lot of angry people out there including me that would have liked to have seen a different outcome. Whenever a police shooting like this occurs, rarely does the officer face any charges. They get to skate free like Darren Wilson, free to hit the talk show circuit profiting off the misery of the Brown family without any conscious at all.
Personally, I don't care what Wilson has to say. I was done when I heard him say that Michael Brown looked like a demon. Seriously? Wonder what he was looking like at the same time he shot Brown, the face of the death? Here's a man with a badge, a gun and the entire police department behind him and he's insinuating that he feared for his life. Oh please!
It's still open season against black men and Michael Brown is the latest casualty. As long is there is no justice, there will be no peace. My heart goes out to all the folks in Ferguson whose businesses were burned and looted. Where were the Ferguson police then? They certainly weren't protecting and defending their citizens, only one of their own.
It ain't over!
