Here are some of the people writing about some of the stuff I wish I had time to write about, for November 21st through November 25th:
It’s Impossible to Indict a Cop – It’s not just Ferguson—here’s how the system protects police.
- Ferguson Decision: No Justice for the Family of Michael Brown – There will be no justice for the family of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
- No Indictment for Darren Wilson, No Justice for Black Lives – Unrest kept Michael Brown’s memory alive, and unrest is the key to justice.
- The Big Takeaway from the Ferguson Ruling: White Supremacy Is Alive and Well – With "no indictment" announced against Darren Wilson, a perverted natural order of things was affirmed.
- How Darren Wilson avoided criminal charges for killing Michael Brown – The Ferguson police officer was entitled to use deadly force for two reasons, but both contradict eyewitness accounts. So how might have a grand jury decided?
- Still No Justice for Michael Brown – In the coming days, as I and countless others pour over the evidence presented to the grand jury, I will be asking at least two basic questions.
- Chris Hayes: There’s ‘real underlying rage’ – Ari Melber talks to Chris Hayes about the reaction of protesters in Ferguson, MO following the decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson.
- Ferguson, goddamn: No indictment for Darren Wilson is no surprise. This is why we protest – The Missouri grand jury’s decision has sent a message to the world that black lives do not matter. Fists up. The cops still shoot.
- Op-Ed Columnist: Suffer Little Children – Today’s immigrants are the same as our parents and grandparents were. President Obama is doing the decent thing with his immigration initiative.
- Congresswoman-Elect Mia Love: Personification of GOP Hypocrisy on Immigration – As a woman born to immigrants, a group Republicans have been hostile towards for decades, Mia Love’s membership in the Grand Old Party is downright hypocritical.
