The Ruling on Michael Brown’s Murder is a National Disgrace

Filed under: American Injustice,Racism — millerlf @ 4:37 pm

Last night Paul Butler of the Georgetown University Law Center said, ”An unarmed African American man or women has no rights that a white cop is bound to respect.”

This true statement is framed from United States Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney when ruling on the Dred Scott case in 1857. He stated, “The Black man had no rights which the white man is bound to respect.”

Last night District Attorney Robert McCulloch said healing should begin. All day today people called for healing to begin.

I don’t think healing can happen until political power is conceded and the murder of young Black men by the police and “stand-your-ground” racists ends and the guilty are punished.

  1. What I found most chilling about Murdoch’s statement was that Officer Wilson followed his training. Did he just imply that officer Wilson was trained to to fire 6 kill shots into an unarmed man with his arms up in surrender? That is frighteningly disturbing!
