“Justice”

When Officer Darren Wilson graciously and wisely decided to step down from the Ferguson Police Department after a grand jury declined to indict him, racialist rabble-rouser Al Sharpton said all the fuss isn’t about Wilson’s job but about “justice.” In other words, forget what the grand jury determined and lynch the guy because someone has to pay for the death of the stupid bully Michael Brown.

Well, if “justice” is the goal, why is Sharpton, who incited the riots in Crown Heights and has refused to pay his taxes, still walking the streets? Why does he have a TV show, while Wilson, who was just doing his job, doesn’t even have employment?

“Justice” is a strange thing in 21st century America.
