The Meaning of Ferguson
November 26, 2014
What is the meaning of the Ferguson case?
More than often, meaning is lost in bias, translation and agenda. Consequently, you will find all kinds of people who will advance their prejudices to convince you to adopt "their" meaning. In actual fact, when you are talking about issues which relate to justice, meaning is dictated by the rule of law.
And so, what is the real "meaning" of the Ferguson case?
First and foremost, one needs to firmly understand the fact that the Fergusan Grand Jury was a Dictation, not a Decision. When the Judicial process is manipulated and corrupted, it is called a miscarriage of justice, NOT a decision.
An unarmed man was shot in the middle of the road in broad daylight, and that is called Cold Blooded Murder. Darren Wilson has been provided every opportunity to explain his actions and since his access to the media has been available at will he has failed to convince the largest jury in the world.
Consequently, if Darren Wilson is not a convicted murderer, it is because the judicial process has been manipulated by those who obstruct justice, and as long as that is the case, the current failure to indict Darren Wilson is understandable but it is not justifiable.
The following excerpts of a November 25, 2014 editorial in the New York Times clearly reflects the basic elements of the transparent miscarriage of justice in the Ferguson case;
"Under ordinary circumstances, grand jury hearings can be concluded within days. The proceeding in this case lasted an astonishing three months. And since grand jury proceedings are held in secret, the drawn-out process fanned suspicions that Mr. McCulloch was deliberately carrying on a trial out of public view, for the express purpose of exonerating Officer Wilson.
If all this weren’t bad enough, Mr. McCulloch took a reckless approach to announcing the grand jury’s finding. After delaying the announcement all day, he finally made it late in the evening, when darkness had placed law enforcement agencies at a serious disadvantage as they tried to control the angry crowds that had been drawn into the streets by news that the verdict was coming. Mr. McCulloch’s announcement sounded more like a defense of Officer Wilson than a neutral summary of the facts that had led the grand jury to its conclusion.
For the black community of Ferguson, the killing of Michael Brown was the last straw in a long train of abuses that they have suffered daily at the hands of the local police. News accounts have strongly suggested, for example, that the police in St. Louis County’s many municipalities systematically target poor and minority citizens for street and traffic stops — partly to generate fines — which has the effect of both bankrupting and criminalizing whole communities.
In this context, the police are justifiably seen as an alien, occupying force that is synonymous with state-sponsored abuse."
Nevertheless, this Editorial about the 'Meaning of the Ferguson Riots' misses the vital point and it needs to be widely acknowledged because nothing will ever change until it is.
First and foremost, the law is perfect. It is the people who administer it who are responsible for obstructing it, and in this case, the reasons for this miscarriage of justic are clear and obvious.
First and foremost, Prosecutor Robert P. McCulloch is a serial liar. His mishandling of an investigation into an undercover drug sting that left a drug suspect and his passenger dead at the hands of police, makes him unsuitable to be the member of any legitimate law society of the member of any bar. In 2001, witnesses in that case told a grand jury that the suspects tried to escape arrest and then drove toward them; the jury declined to indict. McCulloch told the public that every witness had testified to confirm this version, but journalists reviewed the previously secret grand jury tapes and found that McCulloch lied: only three of 13 officers testified that the car was moving forward.
A subsequent federal investigation found that men were unarmed and that their car had not moved forward when the officers fired 21 shots; nevertheless, it decided that the shooting was justified. McCulloch also drew controversy when he said of the victims: "These guys were bums."
McCulloch has been criticized for misrepresenting secret grand jury testimony in his public statements about the 2001 case.
The prosecutor’s family history has also been cited by opponents. McCulloch’s father, a police officer, was killed on duty by a black assailant. Consequently, in his mind, every black man is a bum, and that made his involvement in the death of Mike brown an absolute travesty of justice.
It is time to indict Robert P. McCulloch for obstructing justice and to hold him acountable for all the rioting in Ferguson.
Moreover, it is time to indict Darren Wilson for the murder of Mike Brown.
When that is done, the meaning of the Ferguson case will be absolutely clear to everybody.
Finally, I just heard Dr. Baden tell CNN's Erin Burnett that the manner in which Darren Wilson shot Mike Brown in the head was barbaric (based on Wilson's narration) and she simply ignored this brilliant, forensic expert.
I think people have had enough of CNN reporting and even Fox News appears to be more responsive, and that, Erin Burnett, is as good as it gets. Please resign, you are an absolute joke -try comedy or stop reading the lines your handlers distribute because people deserve the truth, not the CNN agenda.
