FAILURE TO PROSECUTE FERGUSON COP AN OUTRAGE

Posted by Seth Chazin | Nov 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

The decision not to prosecute Darren Wilson in the killing of unarmed Michael Brown is an outrage!  Varying reports indicate that Brown had been shot between 6 and 12 times.  It is uncontroverted that he was unarmed. There can be no legal justification for this.  However, it is not surprising that Wilson was not indicted, between the institutional racism in our country and the fact that the father of St. Louis County DA McCulloch had allegedly been killed by an African-American man while on duty as a police officer in St. Louis when McCulluch was 12 years old.  The question that needs to be asked is:  Why did McCulloch not recuse himself and his office from presenting this case before the Grand Jury?

ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
