*Get ready for … nothing.
Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank , in a piece called “Ferguson Tragedy Becoming A Farce,” is flat out saying what most in the black community already suspect. Don’t look for an indictment of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown:
What happened in Ferguson, Mo., last month was a tragedy. What’s on course to happen there next month will be a farce.
October is when a grand jury is expected to decide whether to indict the white police officer, Darren Wilson, who killed an unarmed black teenager by firing at least six bullets into him. It’s a good bet the grand jurors won’t charge him, because all signs indicate that the St. Louis County prosecutor, Robert McCulloch, doesn’t want them to.
The latest evidence that the fix is in came this week from The Post’s Kimberly Kindy and Carol Leonnig, who discovered that McCulloch’s office has declined so far to recommend any charges to the grand jury. Instead, McCulloch’s prosecutors handling the case are taking the highly unusual course of dumping all evidence on the jurors and leaving them to make sense of it.
Millbanks says it’s basically a ruse. BS. On the surface it looks like a way to give grand jurors more authority. Actually it’s a sly way to NOT charge Wilson at all and then blame it all on the grand jury.
