Black Wednesday

1a

In this video, two experienced attorneys explain what, in their view, are serious flaws with the grand jury process in the Darren Wilson case. The lawyers, St. Louis University law professor Susan McGraugh and Jerryl T. Christmas, a defense attorney and former prosecutor in St. Louis, are unsparing in their criticism of county prosecutor Bob McCulloch. (Christmas has participated in protests following Brown’s death.)

Specifically, McGraugh and Christmas question McCulloch’s unusual decision to present “all evidence” to the grand jury. Typically, prosecutors present to the grand jury only the evidence necessary to establish probable cause. (A grand jury does not determine guilt or innocence but only if a reasonable jury could find the defendant guilty.) McGraugh and Christmas are especially critical of McCulloch’s decision to allow Wilson to testify for hours in front of the grand jury.

McGraugh and Christmas emphasized that, when a prosecutor truly wants to get an indictment from a grand jury, it is usually very simple to do so.

    Killer cop Darren Wilson proved beyond a reasonable doubt he is a textbook psychopath with his statements, not one stitch of compassion, until he appeared on TeeVee then he switched his concern, predictably.

      When the verdict came out Monday evening, my internet speed dropped from 19.6 to a little over 2.6. A FB friend said that was probably why my speed dropped so drastically, everyone using the net all at once. He said usage exploded with the verdict.

      I love FB. Get to see some arguments despite 95 percent of my friends being Liberals, I do have republican friends. Most are smart enough to keep their mouth shut though, lol.

    The KKK. Created by democrats to keep blacks from their 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms and enforce their legislatively created Jim Crow laws. Robert C. Byrd would be proud.

      I haven’t been going out in the evening since I caught this damn cold. And would you believe this? I haven’t had a beer since last Tuesday, over a week now. Didn’t even have a toke until last night. I can be strong if I want to.

    It’s after 8:30 p.m., pitch dark and a machine is out in the cornfield behind me, harvesting the corn. He started early this morning, didn’t get much done and quit not long after noon. Weird to be doing it in the dark.

    Hey guess what? The entire planet is currently in a state of rage brought about by the tremendous separation of the have’s and the have nots, it is unsustainable however initially rewarding as it seems, sooner or later you will be devoid of a money supply.

    The BIG AMERICAN PIGOUT is less than 12 hours away, gluttonous-maximus portrayed across the land as the already beached whale blobules descend into the turkey realm opening up new stretch mark territories body-wide (no pun intended).
    Not a good time to be a turkey tho.
