"No indictment: Grand jury decides Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson will not face criminal charges in Michael Brown shooting death."
I have been following this news since the August 9th 2014 shooting of Michael Brown. What a sad sad story this is for the Brown Family or any family for that matter. The Brown family feel that officials have not given them justice for the loss of their son. There is so much hatred and violence that continues to grow in this town.
As you can imagine the chaos when news came to the Ferguson community especially to the Brown family that there were no indictment charges for Officer Darren Wilson all hell broke loose. I feel for that community because so much violence took place their last evening and perhaps there will be more this evening. What do you do about violence. They need changes, they also need people who do not live in their town not to come to stir up trouble. Voicing your opinion, coming out to support the Brown family, being angry is normal behaviour but looting, being violent, hurting others is not the way to resolve any situation.
Violence is unacceptable, by looting, by destroying they only hurt themselves and they have done it to themselves so they are no further ahead. I feel for them and they have a right to be disappointed but they have no right to be violent and hurt others along the way. By destroying businesses, they hurt the people that own them and they hurt their livelihoods, by destroying cars especially the police cars that means you the taxpayer gets hit with the charges. They have only made a bad name for their community and destroy tourism, they are no further ahead with their violent actions, they now have hindered their progress to a degree.
As Martin Luther King said: "Power, at its best, is love implementing the demands of justice; justice, at its best, is love correcting everything that stands against love." -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The only way this town is going to heal and move forward is through love, understanding, patience and tolerance. Sure you can demand justice in a respectful way; but be fair in your attempts as two wrongs will never make the situation right. It's now time to learn from this and move forward. Just some of my thoughts on this volatile subject. Everyone has to do their part: The government of Missouri, the Police Force, etc. need to make changes now.
