I have a sneaking suspicion that if the police officer in Ferguson is exonerated completely in the shooting of Michael Brown that certain “community organizers” will never be happy. They have a vested interest in fomenting rage and unrest. No amount of evidence will cause them to celebrate the man’s innocence. Unfortunately, some people will only be satisfied if the man is hanged publicly, no matter what. How many of these racially charged mob actions must America have to endure?
