It's All About Ferguson

DARREN WILSON NOT INDICTED/LIVE RIOT UPDATES FROM FERGUSON

Protests Turn Violent

Why Keep The Faith In Ferguson?







Well now what?

I don't know the late Michael Brown's family. But I respect what they said to the media
and what they did.

It's as if they heard the message: "In the end...only kindness will matter."

Part of me aches for those folks. The holiday season is approaching and they have lost
one of their own. A member of their own family. A child. And now they are left with a
treasure box of Thanksgiving memories.

How will that family celebrate this year? How will they celebrate at all?

How will they reach out beyond that "Seasons' Greetings" sign?

To me, this isn't about protesters closing ranks in the streets. This is more about a young
man who is gone and another man who is being torn down in disgrace.

I wonder if Michael's Dad sometimes feels like running out into the street, crying, "Where's
my boy?" "I want my son back!" "God, give him back!" "Michael, where are you?"

And I wonder if a man, who once planned to be a paragon of virtue, puts his head in his
hands and runs what happened on that fateful day...through his mind...over. and. over. and.
over. and. over.

 Even Judas couldn't face himself in the end.

Former Officer (because that is what I've heard you'll soon be...back to citizen Darren
Wilson) do you feel any remorse?



Did you tell the truth or did you lose your cool and murder that young man? Did you
kill Michael and then turn yourself into an ugly, arrogant machine so that you could
distance yourself from what really happened?

Did Michael
Brown put you in a spot where you had to literally fight for your life?

Darren Wilson, do you regret that you went to work that day?

Do you feel sad?

Have you gone to visit Michael Brown's grave?

What's the truth here?

I don't want to hear about protests or free turkeys or see signs or hear racial slurs or
listen to sound bites or discuss terrorism and politics, anymore.

I WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH

Perhaps that is the very reason why the Grand Jury hasn't made their decision yet.
Maybe they feel exactly the same way.
