Why Darren Wilson will possibly not be charged.

Found this letter to the editor of the UK Guardian. The author expresses opinions held by RWNJ's who have never known the process of analytical thinking. Perhaps thinking itself is just a bit beyond his capabilities.

The grand jury is necessary to determine if there is probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. Adding up all the public statements of all the witnesses and the autopsy reports, I would say that, IMHO, Wilson did not break any law in the shooting of Brown.
Tasers have a range of 15 feet and require both needles to be embedded in order to work. Apparently, Wilson didn't have a Taser anyway.
It is much harder than you think to shoot someone in the leg. If you have your gun out, and an assailant gets to you, there is a good chance you'll be killed with your own gun unless you shoot him. Police are taught to fire at the center of mass (the torso) and to keep firing until the threat is down.
The US is not a Nazi state. If you want to change the law so that police aren't allowed to pursue felony suspects, you are perfectly free to approach your state legislators and try to sell them on that idea.
If you want to change the laws on self-defense, you can follow the above procedures.
If you don't want police to shoot people who attack them, you'll have to restrict job opportunities in the police forces to people who are professional boxers or football players."

The only law broken by Darren Wilson, according to competent witnesses, was "Thou Shalt Not Kill."
Wilson's life was under no threat at all. Will all HELL break loose in Ferguson if Wilson is not charged with murder? Gov. Jay Nixon thinks so.

1. Why is anyone still speculating the outcome of the Wilson situation? Ferguson is a

political "cesspool". The authorities there seem to be proud of their nastiness.

3. He was stopped during a "routine pedestrian stop" - not as a pursued felon

whatever a "routine pedestrian stop" is.

10. There was a felony in the car committed by Darren Wilson

 

Brandishing his weapon as a threat for having been mouthed off to, and reckless endangerment for having it go off.

14. There were no charges to elevate.

He was stopped for walking. Not for any felony.

7. those laws are written specifically to target minorities. (and other Enemies of The State)

Southern states are still racially segregated to a dismaying degree, Jim Crow traps all hidden in complicated state statutes that are difficult to challenge (since the racists are almost always in charge of the legislatures and vote in a bloc to block.) Vast institutions of great age and respectability must be destroyed in order to change that culture.

11. Darren Wilson committed a first degree, premeditated murder of Michael Brown

 

He will get away with it, as the state has no desire to indict him for killing this young man with malice aforethought.

12. Wilson won't be charged because black lives have no value in the legal system

I thought we'd been over this already?
