2. Arrested for demanding justice. Sad America. Are we enjoying our police state, yet?

 

I hope they don't shoot. I am scared that they will just start shooting.

4. One female pastor said they hoped to turn a 'tragic moment into a movement'. I thought

 

that was incredibly eloquent, a la Martin Luther King, Jr.

multi-racial, multi-denominational group of clergy.

Wonder if St. Louis is aware of how horrible the optics are in the eyes of the world.

chanted by protesters right now. Some incredible eloquence from participants.

It is raining pretty good here today. That isn't stopping them because they have so much to stand up against!!!


My daughter has messaged me that the students at her school are doing their walk out.

There is hope!!!!!!

39. College

St Louis Community College at Meramec. They also have campuses in the city, at Forest Part and Florissant Valley which is next to Ferguson, so I am sure there were walk outs there as well.

It seemed to go well. There were speakers in the cafeteria. They asked for a moment of silence for Mike Brown. My daughter and her friend were very upset that people were talking during this time.

26. For historical comparison ...

 

a couple of hours of gathering outside of a police station is more instances than not, resulted in law enforcement turned the accused over to an angry lynch mob; whereas, 65 days of gathering, hasn't even resulted in an indictment, or at a minimum, the release of the information provided to the Grand Jury to consider.

I wonder what's different?

34. I'm not even sure this really means much any longer, with an avowed police-lover (McCulloch)

 

running this Grand Jury, but Grand Jury proceedings are supposed to be secret.

That said, your larger point is well put and dryly and brutally honest.

Hat tip!

35. I realize the GJ process is secretive ...

 

but this matter is unique (read: corrupted) from the start. (Because) I cannot think of another high profile case with so little exculpatory information in the public domain ... there must be a lot of it because the information that IS in the public domain, would ordinarily be enough for a even moderately competent prosecutor to get a Bill.

But then again ... I have never known a prosecutor that presented a balanced case to the GJ. The fix was telegraphed when the prosecutor refused to charge.
