Well, it certainly took long enough, but the prosecutor investigating the shooting death of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in 2014 says the cop won’t be charged with any criminal act.
St. Louis County prosecutor Wesley Bell announced the decision Thursday, more than five years after the incident which was fully exploited by then-President ‘Race-baiter’ Obama.
American Greatness notes:
In the infamous incident on August 9, 2014, Wilson, a White officer, was attacked by 18-year-old Michael Brown, a black man, after Wilson attempted to pull him over in connection with a reported robbery earlier that same day. It was confirmed by video surveillance footage that Brown, along with another black man, had indeed robbed a nearby convenience store earlier that day.
When Wilson pulled over in his police vehicle alongside Brown, on foot, witnesses say that Brown attacked Wilson and tried to take his gun. Wilson eventually got out of his car, and Brown, who initially run away, turned back and charged at Wilson like a football player, forcing Wilson to shoot and kill him.
The incident sparked the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as the “hands up, don’t shoot” hoax, which even Obama’s racially politicized Justice Department noted never happened.
More from American Greatness:
The St. Louis County prosecutor's office, which at the time was under Bell's predecessor Bob McCulloch, turned the case over to a grand jury, which declined to indict Wilson in November of 2014, subsequently sparking more riots. Then the Department of Justice, under then-Attorney General Eric Holder, also refused to prosecute Wilson. As such, Bell's decision not to prosecute Wilson appears to finally bring an end to the legal drama surrounding the Ferguson incident.
Seriously, it’s about time. Wilson’s law enforcement career was dramatically cut short by this tragedy (any death like this is tragic though it was entirely avoidable on Brown’s part).
