I felt the Grand Jury was correct in the Brown case. THIS case, however, seems very different...as a case of excessive force being used recklessly and resulting in death.
Was this racially-motivated?...I don't think so. However, I don't know all of the evidence presented to the G.Jury...and, perhaps, we need to trust that since they were privy to ALL of the evidence, they made a sober and rational decision based on all the facts.
I don't believe that the Grand Jurors were racist...so we have to respect their decision, regardless of whether or not we agree.

Now you know why the Mike Brown shooting was national news and this was brushed under the rug. It doesn’t fit with the divide agenda. But I completely agree this was excessive force and a person got killed. The officer should at least be charged with manslaughter.
Unfortunately this will never reach anywhere near the media coverage of Thug Gangsta Thief Mike Brown.

I don't think this was racially motivated. I don't think Wilson should have been indicted, but this cop used excessive force and inadvertently caused a person's death.
I don't agree with this decision. If someone doesn't make some changes, there will be justifiable riots. And when those happen, Ferguson and LA will look like a playground.

Here we go again. One gets over and another one starts... Sad that this is what this country has become...

This is what happens when people cry wolf. I kept saying to others that if they (msm, obama, sharpton) continue with the race baiting narrative the people will get sick of it and will not consider the real cases of it. This is clearly a case where it is real, this man literally did nothing and died because of of it.
This is sad. I thought the Ferguson rioters should have used Eric Garner as their poster boy, because this should have been a clear cut case. He just stood there, minding his own business.
