Wow, when you lose Nancy Grace you're really screwed. (VIDEO) Feruguson.

http://www.truth-out.org/buzzflash/videos/video/nancy-grace-goes-off-on-darren-wilson-it-doesn-t-add-up

Nancy Grace joined CNN’s Brooke Baldwin to discuss the Ferguson grand jury decision Wednesday afternoon and she had a lot to say about Officer Darren Wilson’s version of the story, which has finally come out through his testimony and interviews. According to her, the whole thing “doesn’t add up.”

ON EDIT:

Former prosecutor turned CNN screaming banshee Nancy Grace took on the grand jury findings in the Michael Brown case. She found the prosecutor McCulloch not to be a very good prosecutor and Darren Wilson to not be very honest.

Apparently, she does have some ethics with which I formerly did not credit her. Her total frustration over the way the prosecutor handled the grand jury in the Brown case is evident.

1. as much as Grace can be a right wing fool

She is one of the first to call out Prosecutors on their bullshit. Durign the Zimmerman case, she was one of the rare LOUD vopices that would callZimmerman a killer, and who argued loudly with Geroge's racist buddy Frank taffe. When tjhe Prosecutors screwed up the casey Anthony verdict, she called them out on the fact that they really did not want to prosecute. She is doing the same thing here, and regardless of race, I can truly believe she would have worked a hell of a lot harder to convict Wilson.

2. Yep, I think you are correct.

 

I think she would be far more impartial than McColluch.

3. My take on Ms Grace (I'll admit I avoid her with a passion)

She is all about punishing people. It doesn't matter who you are or the circumstances that lead to any possible prosecution, she wants vengeance. It's a good media tactic. It will always bring in an audience. And one thing you have to admit is that commercial media is all about audience.
Our national identity is built upon a few very perverse views of the world that only historical amnesia or thoughtful, realistic reflection can defeat. First would be the the self shame and condemnation of those that can't live a perfect life based on our puritanical roots. The other is the Calvinist view that those of great wealth are being rewarded by god for their virtue.
Additionally, the whole "greed is good" era of the 80's sold us on the idea that it was all well and good to play suckers for all they were worth because if they couldn't protect their interests, it was just their fault.

4. I think this has legs, a person I know on FB had written how it was over and needed to be accepted,

etc. and now, suddenly, her post is gone. She is a republican but a sane one. A deep, federal inspection needs to commence immediately...

5. If anyone knows unethical prosecutorial behavior it is Nancy Grace

While a prosecutor, Grace was reprimanded by the Supreme Court of Georgia for withholding evidence and for making improper statements in a 1997 arson and murder case. The court overturned the conviction in that case and found that Grace’s behavior “demonstrated her disregard of the notions of due process and fairness and was inexcusable.” [9]

As well, a 2005 federal appeals opinion by Judge William H. Pryor, Jr. found that Grace "played fast and loose" with core ethical rules in a 1990 triple murder case, including the withholding of evidence and allowing a police detective to testify falsely under oath. The 1990 murder conviction was upheld despite Grace's prosecutorial misconduct.

7. She is correct, it does not add up.

The whole grand jury thing was a farce. The outcome was predetermined. Wilson's story was concocted in the police station after the shooting. The whole Ferguson PD was involved from the get go in covering up for Wilson.

8. Nancy tilts to guilty guilty guilty for everyone

It burns her up when a guilty man escapes the chair, and she sees just about everyone as guilty. So it's no surprise she is annoyed Mr Wilson has escaped the noose.

9. Wrong!

I don't recall her ever thinking a cop was guilty of anything.
