Federal Charges Unlikely for Darren Wilson in Ferguson Case! Bottom Line: Michael Brown a Thug, Officer Wilson a Hero!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his civil rights chief, Vanita Gupta, will have the final say on whether the Justice Department will close the case against the officer, Darren Wilson. But it would be unusual for them to overrule the prosecutors on the case, who are still working on a legal memo explaining their recommendation.

A decision by the Justice Department would bring an end to the politically charged investigation of Mr. Wilson in the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The Missouri authorities concluded their investigation into Mr. Brown`s death in November and also recommended against charges."

The New York Times

A grand jury heard more than 5,000 pages of testimony from 60 witnesses over a span of three months, and they decided not to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson.

It would take an average non-biased individual a lot less time to come to the undeniable conclusion that Michael Brown was a thug whose criminal mindset of disrespect for himself, his community and the police lead to his death.

Justice Department prosecutors have apparently decided not to bring civil rights charges against Officer Wilson.

Attorney General Eric Holder could override his own prosecutors, and charge Wilson with violating Brown`s civil rights, but that would be such an egregious disregard of justice and common sense that tax-paying citizens would revolt in outrage.

Michael Brown was a thug who lunged for cop`s gun only minutes after committing a strong arm robbery, and Darren Wilson was a peace officer who acted in self-defense. End of story!

Race pimps Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson will continue unabated with their vendetta against Wilson, regardless of the findings of the grand jury, Missouri authorities, and the Justice Department, but I strongly urge the black community to move on.

There`s plenty of work to be done in striving to make police departments more accountable and sensitive to the communities that they serve and protect, but there is nothing to be gained demonizing Officer Wilson.
