Despite Their Best Attempts, Holder And Sharpton Couldn’t Railroad Officer Wilson Into Ferguson Shooting.
After the Michael Brown shooting, a country erupted. When it came time to investigate, the truth came out. Darren Wilson was not to stand trial. Protests overtook cities, and murder ensued. A call for the federal government came loud and clear. Al Sharpton was running around echoing his usual mantra, which is truly losing significance at this point, “No Justice, No Peace”.
When the verdict did not go the way Mr. Sharpton wanted, he began screaming for the Justice Department to do something. Then, unsurprisingly, Eric Holder answered the call.
“While the grand jury proceeding in St. Louis County has concluded, the Justice Department’s investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown remains ongoing.
The federal inquiry has been independent of the local one from the start and remains so now.”
However, despite Charlatan Sharpton and everything is racist Attorney General Eric Holder, the federal charges do not look like they are coming any time soon. That is according to a network that certainly would like to see it the other way.
CNN reports that the federal investigation into whether Darren Wilson criminally “deprived” Michael Brown of his “civil rights” has found NO evidence. The FBI completed and turned in their investigation, and Justice Department prosecutors will not recommend charges against Wilson because there is “not sufficient evidence to support charges”.
Just in case you think this is some kind of “right-wing conspiracy”, the New York Times was the first to report this.
So, then it is over? Well, not quite yet. Holder still needs to announce his final decision, which he has said will be done prior to leaving. However, that could come anytime this spring, which leaves a few months open. The lawyer for the Brown family. Benjamin Crump, said the family will wait for the official announcement.
Unfortunately, the announcement apparently might spark new violence if St. Louis city alderman Antonio French is to be believed. He says people in the area will be “disappointed” with the verdict.
"I think you have a lot of people who will be disappointed if this does turn out to be the case. The community and the family wanted a day in court, an opportunity to see all the evidence laid out, cross-examined. And it looks like that's not going to happen. I hope we don't have any violence as a result of this."
He said in closing, that the protests that Ferguson gave birth to, are “not likely to stop any time soon”.
So, despite the fact that in November a grand jury chose not to indict him and the Feds do not seem like they are going to indict him, he will always be guilty to some. Even after the fury and fervor of Sharpton and Holder ultimately add up to nothing, Darren Wilson's future still remains unknown.
