1. Not true.

 

They decided there was not enough evidence to pursue charges against Darren Wilson for civil rights violation.

It's an extremely difficult standard to convict on.

2. Sorry

 

About getting that nuance wrong... I apologize for that as I hate when I see someone else do it. The ultimate outcome is still just plain morally depressing to me

3. Agreed

 

Very morally depressing.

I believe there is more evidence in the case of Tamir Rice though, so at least there might be justice there.
