It has been a sad 24 hours. The Ferguson DA proved what a tool he was with one awful decision after another. Black people are making themselves up to be such savages that white people's racism is growing exponentially. Black leaders look like ineffectual, anti-intellectual douchebags that would make MLK cry in comparison. And the Republicans, not even in power yet, are already heading up another Benghazi witch hunt and are resurrecting Paul Ryan's budget plan, which voters have consistently said they hate due to priorities such as a Medicare voucher system (which would destroy it), privatizing Social Security (which would bankrupt it) and are peddling trickle down economics as their answer to everything regardless of the fact that over thirty years of data proves it doesn't work. Has this country lost it's mind?
Let's start with an a easy target after yesterday: black people. These idiots apparently don't realize that reverse the color scheme, change the date to 1950 where say a black man shot a white cop, and you'd have the equivalent of a good old fashioned lunch mob. So the same exact people who bitch about a noose hanging in a Worcester Post Office (which is in supremely bad taste let me add) is the same group running down the street with said noose for Officer Wilson. WTF? Lynch mobs, regardless of race, have no place in this society. White people were horrified when this happened way back when which is why it doesn't happen anymore. Where is that same outrage from black people? I sure didn't see it from media hound Al Sharpton or a lethargic Jesse Jackson. I hope when each of these losers die, MLK is waiting for them and instead of handshake, he kicks them in the balls. He would be horrified what had become of his sucessors

I looked over all the evidence they gave and truth be told, Wilson's story is backed up by the forensic evidence. Three autopsies all said the same thing that Mike Brown attacked Wilson in his car (also backed up by at least eyewitnesses), and then for some inane reason ran back toward him linebacker style. And while there are some inconsistencies with Wilson's story as his injuries do not suggest a huge beating by a much larger man, there is no evidence that Wilson had his hands up and was surrendering when shot which many, many people wrongfully claimed to see.
This is telling as a vast majority of the black community here lied to police for whatever reason, legitimate or not. And the stats I have recently uncovered suggest that not only is white racism almost non-existent, it is exploding in black communities as far back as the beginning of the new century.
A scientific study from 2005 called The Color of Crime suggest these facts:

• Police and the justice system are not biased against minorities.

Crime Rates
 • Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
• When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
• Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
 • The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime
• Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
• Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty- five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
• Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
• Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

• Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
• Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.

• Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
• Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely

The methods used in this study are scientifically sound and show that black people are more likely to commit crimes and their sentences are usually longer because they almost always have a longer criminal record. I will try to devote a column about this later but for now I have other fish to fry.
The DA for all of this did nothing to help the situation. He should have brought this to trial, even if he it was a certain loser. Doing all of this behind closed doors in the equivalent of a secret trial was going to blow up in his face and it did. And why on God's green Earth do you wait until 8 at night to tell people about a verdict that was almost certainly going to explode in a rage of hostility? Do something like this a 5 in the morning when everyone's sleeping and by the time they get up, cops are waiting. Instead DA Dumbass wanted prime time coverage, screwing up everyone's shows last night as a bonus, and proceeded to make Wilson look like the hero and Brown to be a scumbag. Yeah, that'll make the crowd outside happy.

This is from Fivethirtyeight.com:

Former New York state Chief Judge Sol Wachtler famously remarked that a prosecutor could persuade a grand jury to “indict a ham sandwich.” The data suggests he was barely exaggerating: According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. attorneys prosecuted 162,000 federal cases in 2010, the most recent year for which we have data. Grand juries declined to return an indictment in 11 of them.

If the prosecutor wants an indictment and doesn’t get one, something has gone horribly wrong,” said Andrew D. Leipold, a University of Illinois law professor who has written critically about grand juries. “It just doesn’t happen.”

Cases involving police shootings, however, appear to be an exception. As my colleague Reuben Fischer-Baum has written, we don’t have good data on officer-involved killings. But newspaper accounts suggest, grand juries frequently decline to indict law-enforcement officials. A recent Houston Chronicle investigation found that “police have been nearly immune from criminal charges in shootings” in Houston and other large cities in recent years. In Harris County, Texas, for example, grand juries haven’t indicted a Houston police officer since 2004; in Dallas, grand juries reviewed 81 shootings between 2008 and 2012 and returned just one indictment. Separate research by Bowling Green State University criminologist Philip Stinson has found that officers are rarely charged in on-duty killings, although it didn’t look at grand jury indictments specifically.
There are at least three possible explanations as to why grand juries are so much less likely to indict police officers. The first is juror bias: Perhaps jurors tend to trust police officer and believe their decisions to use violence are justified, even when the evidence says otherwise. The second is prosecutorial bias: Perhaps prosecutors, who depend on police as they work on criminal cases, tend to present a less compelling case against officers, whether consciously or unconsciously.
The third possible explanation is more benign. Ordinarily, prosecutors only bring a case if they think they can get an indictment. But in high-profile cases such as police shootings, they may feel public pressure to bring charges even if they think they have a weak case.
“The prosecutor in this case didn’t really have a choice about whether he would bring this to a grand jury,” Ben Trachtenberg, a University of Missouri law professor, said of the Brown case. “It’s almost impossible to imagine a prosecutor saying the evidence is so scanty that I’m not even going to bring this before a grand jury.”
What the DA here did have a choice over was when to release the information which was at the worst possible moment. This guy's an ass and deserves to be kicked out of office stat.
Then we have the Republicans who are clamoring for the Keystone Pipeline which will do absolutely nothing, are still screaming about Benghazi even though there is no proof of any wrongdoing (think lynch mob here again) and whose economic policies they keep trotting out are the exact same crap they have peddled for decades now with predictable, terrible results. And some of you out there voted for this crap? Democrats may have run a piss poor campaign, but believing anything the GOP says is equally stupid.
Maybe we should just elect people by random drawing because elections are killing us. Stop believing stupid shit. Global warming is real and can be seen with the naked eye in places like Glacier National Park which will soon have no glaciers. Black people commit more crimes than white people. Bill Cosby got away with raping women for so long by playing the race card. No more alright. And Republicans are the stupidest fuckers on the face of this Earth. Once we accept these truths to be self evident, maybe we can finally start moving forward with some real solutions.
