Jay Nixon: Ferguson cop who
killed Michael Brown could walk

CBS News, by Jake Miller

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/24/2014 2:56:26 PM

The police officer who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown earlier this month may not ultimately face charges stemming from the incident, Gov. Jay Nixon, D-Mo., acknowledged Sunday. The shooting by Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson, who is white, sparked several weeks of heated protests and racially charged confrontations between law enforcement officers and protesters in the small town. Nixon told CNN he´s confident "justice will be served" in the case, but he said it´s a possibility that no charges will be filed. "All of those things could happen," he said when pressed on a range of possible conclusions.

Comments:
This shows that Jay Nixon has the same racial BIAS and could prejudice a possible future civil rights jury pool against the police officer. This has the odious smell of 0bama and Holder. He should be impeached. Even the headline is offensive to police officers.

I said before that this episode could turn Missouri red, the more I read of the (almost) aftermath the more I am convinced.

Michael Brown attacked the police officer while the officer was in his vehicle, after the officer told him to get out of the center of the street. That is a felony. When Michael ran away, the police officer gave chase. When Michael turned and rushed at the police officer, the police officer was in fear of his life, due to Michael´s attack mere moments before Michael´s charge. The police officer kept shooting Michael until the threat to his life was ended. That took 6 shots. The police officer should be no-billed by the grand jury.

The MSM is totally to blame for the situation in Ferguson. Not a peep about the nightly killings in Chicago. No news there, it is black on black homicide. Send Sharpton to Syria, maybe there could be another beheading.

today he criticized and questioned the surplus military equipment. But in January he authorized acquisition of same military equipment. Gov Nixon wants to have it both ways. I wonder exactly how he perceived that equipment to be used if not in crowd/disturbance/riot control?

When citizens cease seeing police as there to "serve and protect" and when police expand their mission into a quasi-military status, a confrontation almost seems baked in. MRAP vehicles are the 21st century water hose...

Gov. Nixon is clearly a Demon-RAT. No concept of logic, reason or facts messing with his beliefs that are solely based on feelings.

If Officer Wilson is "no billed", then justice will have been served. Because, that means that the facts proved that he acted in accordance with the law.

It´s only because his feelings have no room for facts to complicate them that causes him to be afraid.

This man is far too stupid to serve in any elected office. I sure hope the police unions and people with common sense remember him come the next time he runs for anything!!!

The County DA is going to decide what indictment to bring depending on the evidence. The eye witness has already retracted his statement made in the presence of his lawyer. This creates immense pressure on the lawyer. If Brown´s fingerprints are on Wilson´s gun, the meme pressed by the media is destroyed. The Governor needs to get out in front and promise that any indictments will be based on the evidence. If Wilson was under sustained attack, there will likely be no indictment. The effort to indict Wilson seems driven by trying to prevent a riot than evidence that Wilson intended to shoot to kill a black youth.

I don´t like the term "walk" either. It implies a guilty person´s getting away with something. Like Obama´s pal Bill Ayers.

This was an officer-involved shooting during a police stop during which the victim assaulted the police officer in his vehicle, attempted to take his weapon, ran away, was told by the officer to "Freeze". Instead witnesses saw the victim turn back toward the officer and run toward him in charging fashion. He kept charging after being hit in the right arm by multiple shots. The final fatal shot to the top of the head stopped him.

It was later determined that the victim, during his assault on the officer in the police vehicle, had punched the officer so hard that he caused an "explosive" fracture of the orbital bone, the structure that holds the eye.

This should have been a cut-and-dried police matter, with an internal investigation. And Officer Wilson´s use of force should have been determined to have been appropriate. Warranted.

Period.

Don´t you just love impartial lead-in sentence from CBS? I bet they won´t mind if I take a tiny step farther.

Michael Brown, the gentle giant who was so peaceful by nature that he chose writing lyric poetry over the violence of high school football, will be buried Monday.

As the nation mourns his passing, his white-cop killer ´Deadeye´ Darren Wilson lounges smugly in a hidden location. Wilson knows he will soon be walking trouble free, with a cool quarter million dollars in his hand - a gift from those who care nothing that a sweet soul was distinguished in the bloom of youth. The world weeps.

Nixon should be removed from office. OR all Missouri Law Enforcement Officers should have a sit down, including those who provide security for Nixon.

Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist. Things That Are Racist: 1. Talking about Ebola (Salon) - 2. Describing the Hong Kong

Turkey approves military operations

Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov -- but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen. Tim Knopp said, “and I think that’s ending Cover Oregon as

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon
