A St. Louis County, Mo., prosecutor said Thursday that he will not be charging the White police officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown in 2014, after quietly reopening the investigation. Civil rights leaders and Brown's mother reportedly hoped that Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell, who became the county’s first Black prosecutor in January 2019, might reopen the investigation into police officer Darren Wilson, who shot Brown six years ago. Bell told reporters today that his decision was “one of the most difficult things I’ve had to do."

There was nothing difficult about the case that the decision should have been difficult. Evidence showed that the criminal fought the policeman, wrestled with him for his gun and the policeman defended himself. What the criminal's mother hoped was that with the present unstable climate, a black prosecutor would side against the policeman who did nothing wrong.

As every TV cop show watcher knows - there is no statute of limitations on murder. So is this matter going to resurface as a sop to BLM and black voters from here on? Brown was a thug who brought on his own death almost as the equivalent to 'suicide by cop'. Brown's family needs to get over their trying to blame his death on anything other than his own damnn fault.

So Wilson should have just sat still while being crushed by an Orca?

“ Bell told reporters today that his decision was “one of the most difficult things I’ve had to do." If a black prosecutor has to consider following the obvious evidence of a white cop’s blamelessness “the most difficult things I had to do,” then that is a real problem, isn’t it? And also this: “There are so many points at which Darren Wilson could have handled the situation differently and if he had, Michael Brown might still be alive,” Bell told reporters.” Oh yeah? Name those points! That is a year’s worth of Monday morning quarterbacking! Drop it once and for all! Throw Michael Brown’s ghetto tramp mother a bone and close the gate!

What were they reopening it for in the first place? Trying to stir the S*** some more? They don't give a nickle about the lives of the people involved that want to get on with their lives. These people are despicable and need to be thrown out of office.

There was no reason to "reopen" this case other than to incite violence. Check out this ridiculous quote from the Columbia Missourian: "St. Louis County’s top prosecutor announced Thursday that he will not charge the former police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, a dramatic decision that could reopen old wounds amid a renewed and intense national conversation about racial injustice and the police treatment of minorities." A "dramatic decision"? Not at all. It was the only decision that could be made. If anything would "reopen old wounds" is a useless reopening of a case closed by Barak Obama. And it was done for exactly that reason! https://www.columbiamissourian.com/news/state_news/prosecutor-no-charges-for-officer-in-michael-brown-s-death/article_64e277ce-b163-57f2-baca-e10ad8ae00b9.html

So, even though the new prosecutor is black, he can still find another black person guilty of a crime after a jury already has. Now, we're getting somewhere!

So the officer could have done things differently at so many points and Brown would still be alive. How about BROWN doing a few things differently and he'd still be alive? Maybe if he hadn't committed a robbery, or hit the officer in the face while he was still in his patrol car, or charged at him instead of submitting to a lawful arrest . . . .

This clown thinks this decision is the most difficult he's ever had to make? I guess to this idiot, the color of one's skin is more important then the facts. This was an open and shut case. The police officer had every right to use deadly force, and the neighborhood is better off as a result.

How many times must this poor former policeman be investigated? There have been at least three that I've seen, including one by the Obama Justice Department. They ruined his career and he had to move away from Ferguson. No telling what his legal bills are. Will every new DA "reopen" the case? At what point can he sue for harassment?

So they get to hang this 'future prosecution's around his neck for the rest of his life? That is not Constitutional. By law he is considered innocent. Unless they have new substantial evidence, they should not reopen the case. The fact this prosecutor did is questionable. Possibly politically motivated. You don't get to keep reviewing the facts till they suit your opinion. Though, as we know Democrats do this for court cases, elections... anything where they didn't get what they want. To them facts are malleable and settled only when they have been massaged in their favor. In other words, they are liars and fraudsters of the worst stripe - waiting for an opportunity to destroy anyone, even 'friends' or family, to achieve that brief high of winning at any cost.

"One of the most difficult things I've had to do" really what a dumb thing to say. That's like saying, Mrs. Brown I'll try my best to throw a murder charge on the white cop who killed your thug son. Ah shucks the evidence favored the cop, again. I tried Mrs. Brown, I tried. Get ready the new narrative for the BLM movement is to retry all killing of blacks by cops.

@#3 - Officer Warren did not 'murder' Michael Brown and was subsequently not charged - therefore, no statute of limitations on murder applies regarding this case.

Rep. Sanford D. Bishop Jr. may have used thousands in campaign funds for personal expenses on gas fill-ups for him and his family, greens fees at country clubs, luxurious trips and school tuition. Further, the Georgia Democrat also may have spent more than $16,000 in taxpayer money for joint Christmas parties — featuring a saxophonist and DJ equipment — with his congressional staff and his wife’s employees, according to an Office of Congressional Ethics report released Friday. The OCE report was released because the House Ethics Committee decided to further extend its investigation into Bishop.

No one would argue that Rep. John Lewis doesn’t deserve a proper memorial. He was a civil rights icon and a long-serving member of Congress who was beloved by his colleagues. In the middle of a pandemic, however, how do we decide who gets the pomp and circumstance of a traditional burial and who has to watch their loved one go six feet under via Zoom call? Funerals are important: they acknowledge the sanctity of life and allow friends and family to come together to grieve their loss. This reality doesn’t change based on how famous or revered an individual was to the general public:

After a history of aggressively pursuing others accused of such abuse, the talk show host is working to avoid responsibility for her workplace environment. On Thursday night, BuzzFeed News revealed that dozens of former employees of the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” claim to have experienced or witnessed sexually abusive actions by the show’s top executive producers. The allegations include that executive producer Kevin Leman asked an employee to give him a hand job or perform oral sex on him at a company party,

No state wears its multicultural veneer more ostentatiously than California. The Golden State’s leaders believe that they lead a progressive paradise, ushering in what theorists Laura Tyson and Lenny Mendonca call “a new progressive era.” Others see California as deserving of nationhood; it reflects, as a New York Times columnist put it, “the shared values of our increasingly tolerant and pluralistic society.” In response to the brutal killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti announced plans to defund the police—a move applauded by Senator Kamala Harris, a prospective Democratic vice presidential candidate, despite the city’s steep rise in homicides.

President Trump on Thursday offered to pay for the funeral of a soldier found dead after disappearing in April from Fort Hood — and said he’s paid for other funerals for troops. Trump made the offer while hosting the family of Vanessa Guillen, who was 20, in the Oval Office. A male soldier suspected of killing Guillen near the Texas base committed suicide, the Army has said. In response to a reporter’s question, Trump said he’s paid for other soldiers’ funerals.

“And I say … segregation today … segregation tomorrow … segregation forever.” Fifty-seven years ago, the newly sworn-in Democrat governor of Alabama, George Wallace, delivered those words in his inaugural address. In other words: George Wallace, who was a product of a political party that built its political power by supporting every imaginable policy that divided Americans by race, was at it again. Using the momentary pulpit that was a governor’s inaugural to play the race card — again. Yesterday there was a new George Wallace. He appeared in an Atlanta church to eulogize the late Democratic Congressman John Lewis, Lewis a certifiable hero of the 1960s civil rights movement.

Herman Cain, who died Thursday after being hospitalized for coronavirus, was Trump before Trump. I first met Herman Cain in 2011, when he was running for the Republican nomination for president. He was the Donald Trump candidate before Trump: a successful businessman, a Washington outsider, a larger-than-life personality with an extraordinary story. In those days the only people who dared run for president were governors or Washington insiders. So when Herman Cain threw his hat into the ring for president, the Washington establishment couldn’t wait to treat it like a joke. What did he know about government? Politics? Elections? Who does he think he is trying to run for president? Sound familiar?

The left in the U.S. has a problem with unintended consequences. No, I don’t mean that they are plagued by unintended consequences. That’s true too, but it goes deeper than that. They don’t see – and refuse to admit – unintended consequences exist or are possible. This is partly due to the people who self-select to be active on behalf of the left, particularly the extreme left. Yes, a lot of them are very smart, but despite that, they have a certain type of mind: they have a mind that tends to Manichean systems and just-so stories.

Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a completely fraudulent Imperial College study to lockdown and destroy the greatest economy in US history. Dr. Anthony Fauci has made at least 15 critical mistakes and contradictions since the start of the pandemic in March.

He needs to be worshiped and I don’t do that. I am his older brother so I don’t do that.” The book, “Big Bad Brother From Kenya,” a self-published memoir which Malik Obama spent 22 years writing, hit Amazon with little fanfare on July 11.

Lawyers tell the joke about a person on trial for mariticide – killing one’s spouse. The defendant testified, “I didn’t do it and, if I did, it was in self-defense.” The point for lawyers is that you can plead inconsistent legal theories, but not inconsistent facts. Which brings me to Portland, Seattle and the Democrats. On the one hand, while their cities are looted and burned the Dems maintain that in fact the looters and burners are “perfectly peaceful.” The Dems’ lackeys in the media spin the same tale.

Obama criticized President Trump and reminded Democrats who they would be letting down if they didn’t elect Biden and a Democratic Senate, urging them to jettison the filibuster — a key institutional obstacle to liberal ambitions — as a “relic of Jim Crow.”
