Some Notes on Ferguson
a) No less than six African-American witnesses corroborated the officer's narrative (i.e., that Michael Brown was charging the officer and that the officer only fired when this was happening). b) All of the witnesses who testified that Michael Brown was trying to surrender (the ring-leader being that Dorian Johnson thug) were either impeached or gave contradictory testimony. c) The forensic evidence also supports the officer's account in that the blood trail was clearly heading back to the officer and the kill-shot was very close.............Look, I am as disheartened as anybody that the kid got plugged, but for people like Michael Eric Dyson (some fast-talking, pseudo-intellectual, academic slug) and Melissa Harris-Perry to try and assert that he didn't do ANYTHING to bring it on (totally ignoring the evidence) is totally disgraceful, in my opinion.
