Conservatives love when Cops kill Black People

In the aftermath of the injustice in St. Louis County, the riots and protests are going to obscure the macro and micro evils the murder of Mike Brown by Darren Wilson have re-illustrated.

After Prosectuor Robert P. McCulloch declared there would be no indictment conservatives gleefully took to every media platform they infest to trumpet their unabashed glee, celebrating, as is their wont, the killing of a minority.

Once again we have confirmation of the despicable nature of conservatives. Right-wingers only support Law Enforcement Agencies and Officers when those agents are conducting one of three activites; undermining Leftist Protests, destroying Unions, and killing or incarcerating black men.

Recall that during Cliven Bundy Insurrection, Conservatives flocked to the area to shoot and kill Law Enforcement Officers. Cop Killer Jerad Miller spent 4 days at Bundy's Camp. Conservative Domestic Terror Groups detailed their plans to shot at Officers while hiding behind women and children.

Conservatives don't support the Rule of Law unless that Law is being used to murder minorities or oppress liberals.

For instance the recent spate of Marijuana legislation laws being passed around the country would seem to indicate the pot is not a dangerous drug. But, in this case conservatives found comfort in an old canard, first proferred by William Randolph Hearst, Reefer Madness. Brown had smoked cannabis! Proof that Brown was high meant Wilson's non-lethal attempts were ineffectual! Cannabis is only a dangerous drug when blacks smoke it.

Of course, much of the right-wing defense of Darren Wilson was based on outright fabrications. Jim Hoft, the St. Louis based dumbest man on the internet hyped the "Orbital-eye socket blowout" injury Wilson supposedly suffered. Hoft and other conservatives bloggers posted and reposted a CAT-Scan which showed the broken eyesocket. It was proven the images used by conservatives bloggers was not of Wilson but taken from a University of Iowa medical textbook. Of course, this didn't dissuade the right-wing liars as they doubled-down on their lies and claimed it was illustrative of the injury Wilson suffered.

But, the real damage had been done because the Lie was in the conservative bloodstream and despite all refutations and evidence against conservatives would continue to parrot that Brown had savagely (purposeful word choice) beaten Wilson.

Now, with the Grand Jury decision we got actual photo evidence of Wilson. He suffered no injuries. His photos showed nothing more than a lip herpe and a popped zit on his right cheek.

Conservatives also hyped Brown's size as justification, Faux News going so far as to claim Brown could not be considered unarmed because of his height and weight. But, what was never mentioned was that Darren Wilson is no tiny wisp. But, while Wilson is 6'4 and 225+, he is a soft doughy disgrace.

This of course allowed Darren Wilson, that squishy slack-jawed wimp, to play up the scary black man defense. Brown despite being unarmed became the Hulk.

Wilson's Grand Jury Testimony, again designed by Prosecutor McCulloch to allow Wilson's "version of events" to be promulgated without cross examination, was a puerile collection of childish analogies.

Grabbing Brown was like a "5 year old holding onto Hulk Hogan", Brown was shrugging off the effects of the bullets and "looked like he was bulking up to run through the shots", while his face was "the most instense aggressive face" and "it looks like a demon". So pathetic was Wilson's testimony it was only to be outdone by the bullshit diary of "witness 40" which was submitted along with all the other mass of lies in order to confuse the Grand Jurors into coming back with no indictment.

It's been pointed out that Prosecutor Robert McCulloch did a fanastic job as the Defense Attorney of Darren Wilson and McCulloch may have been working out his own demons with this case. His father was a Police Officer who was murdered in the line of duty by a black man, while 4 other close family members have worked as Police Officers in St. Louis.

But, McCullochs goals are likely larger. He probably wants to be Attorney General for Missouri and aiding Wilson in escaping trial is a big shout out to white Missourians that they have a friend in McCulloch against the Demon-faced scary black man.

So... Wilson probably got away with murder. The physical evidence doesn't match with Wilson's testimony. The claim about the initial encounter and how exactly Brown "attacked" Wilson, the idea he spotted the cigarellos in Wilson's hand, why did Wilson try and present his weapon while seated in the SUV, the chase and the four times Wilson fired at Brown all of these incidents have enough inconsistencies to warrant further investigation. Nonetheless, I'm not going to guess at how the incident went down and we will never know the truth but, Wilson's entire testimony was crafted to make everyone believe he was in fear for his life.

And Wilson may have feared for his life in the end. But, in the end, Conservatives got what they wanted; freedom for a white cop who killed a black teenager.

2 things. I truly believe that many politicians and cops know that arresting blacks and hispanics can make them ineligible to vote (in many states) and this is a worked on goal. The reason I believe it is a cops wife was laughing about it at the little league game, pretty sure she heard it from hubby or one of their cop friends.
A police record doesn't do them any good when looking for work or applying for bank loans either.

This ridiculous grand jury was a travesty. Here's what I don't get. Where are the Feds? This just seems so much like the Rodney King case, except, no video.
A grand jury refused to indict the police and then a FEDERAL GRAND JURY had to be convened. Then finally, there were indictments.
Perhaps a civil suit is in the works, maybe then the Brown family may get some sort of justice. @ Fringe yes, indeed you are so right about the other aspects of keeping down the progressive/democrat vote. Also there is the appalling aspect of literally highway robbery if you are unfortunate enough to be stopped for a violation.
You could literally be robbed blind, by cops on the take, although I am sure that's been going on for a long time. Thanks for your excellent post Gene, welcome back, we need your voice.

There's many levels of shame at work here.

Conseravitves will always support the use of force against minorities and leftists under the rubric of the Respect for Authority and Rule of Law.

But, when the Authority is a Democratic or Liberal conservatives ignore the law, disrespect authority and obliquely reference "2nd Amendment Remedies" and 'Watering the Tree of Liberty'.

Thus, Conservatives rallied to this killing because they support Wilson's actions by proxy, in the same way they supported Zimmerman's killing of Trayvon Martin.

But, that also holds a key divergence. Zimmerman had no authority to follow, confront and ultimately kill Trayvon, Wilson did have authority to confront Brown and arrest him.

But, what Wilson did was conduct the ultimate sezuire under the 4th Amendment. And that's where several inconsistencies and problems arise.

It's been shown that the Grand Jurors were told Wilson had the right to kill Brown under Missouri Law about fleeling Felony Suspects, but they Prosecutors were incorrect.

The 1985 Tennesse v. Garner SCOTUS rulinng, dictates a fleeing suspect can not be killed by Police unless he poses a deadly threart.

And this is when Wilson's testimony as justification and the reasonable man standards come into play.

Brown was a suspect in a crime. Did Wilson pursue the investigation and the confrontation poorly. To me it appears so. I never speak with regular citizens while seated on my ass, let alone confront a large suspect while sitting in a squad car.

After the intial fight and shots fired, Wilson's perception was he was in fear of his life. And that's the big problem would an outside reasonable observer faced with similar facts have concluded the same.

I don't. I think Wilson caught in the fight/flight cycle couldn't escape the tunnel vision and base brain instincts and apparently lacking training and poise couldn't evaluate the situation properly which thus ended up meaning death for Brown.

But, we'll never know what Brown's final actions were in a meta-truth kind of way. Dead men tell no tales.

So, if Brown was "bulking up" to charge Wilson, turning to surrender or in a haze of pain and fear while dying will forever be lost.
