In light of officer Wilson being cleared of federal charges in the shooting of Michael Brown, I would like to hear comments.

Sounds like there was so much evidence supporting Wilson's side that Holder couldn't even make anything up.

Chanel 7 news gives perspective to say that, 'some people say Brown had his hands up.....' why would C7 slant the news to suggest the issue is still in doubt? Why would they stir up hate with such a misleading report?

Race baiting media is the lowest of the low and C7 deserves to be called out.

Holder was hoping to redeem himself from his unfulfilled promises to get George Zimmerman.

I was very skeptical of Wilson's innocence at first. I thought that someone would have to be a special kind of dumb***** to reach into a police car and try to grab the gun of an officer. The idea of this just seemed too outrageous . . . and then entered young Mr. Brown who proved me wrong. He is a strong contender for the Darwin award of 2014. Although - and this is an issue for another thread - this does not excuse the Ferguson PD for years of systematic oppression of a large portion of it's population and it certainly doesn't excuse the police snipers (and the firing line of cops) for pointing their weapons at the crowd. Mind you, they did this on the first day of the protests and the rioting didn't start until the second day. At this point, the idiot Mr. Brown was not longer the reason for the unrest, just the match that started the fire.

100% media instigated **** storm. I want to see the race baiters held accountable by the media but that wont happen, they bring too much money into the news room.

Holder came out with this to placate the people at that time.
We all know Americans have short memories and soon move on to the next crisis.

And it worked didn't it. There's been no reports of riots in Ferguson based on the DOJ statement.
