Here we go again. The ongoing drama of Michael Brown rolls into Act Three. The first act at Michael Brown and a thug-friend stealing cigars from convenience store and assaulting the owner.
Act One ended when Michael Brown assaulted a police officer responding to the robbery and assault of the story. Brown’s second assault of the day and did when the police officer, fearing for his life, shot and killed Brown.
Act Two was the “investigation.” Act Two began when the Democratic Governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, called for prosecution and conviction of the police officer who shot Michael Brown before Brown’s body was even cold. That was immediately followed by US Attorney General Eric Holder sending sending over 100 FBI agents and Justice Department civil rights lawyers to Ferguson. In the course of time the prosecutor of St. Louis County sent the case to a grand jury. They presented all the evidence to the grand jury members, gave Holder’s Justice Department full access to the presentation on a daily basis, and the grand jury ruled that the Ferguson police officer acted in self-defense. The department of justice later concurred with that call.
Michael Brown’s family is now going to ram this farce through the civil court system.
