This is at least the 14th person killed by a St. Louis cop in the last decade and not one has had charges pressed against them. The prosecutor's father was a cop killed in the line of duty. No cop will ever be charged with a crime under his jurisdiction.

You know the KKK are going to be celebrating this, and that's how you know the wrong decision has been made.

I'm not 100 percent in either camp. I wasn't on the jury so I feel my opinion will be mostly uninformed.

I hope the Ferguson community rebuilds and strengthens itself. There's a lot of things to be looked at in retrospect. The media specifically and how it handles and intensifies race relations. Sad and scary the power it has. Things get blown entirely out of proportion.

I hope their law enforcement is under intense scrutiny now. Most importantly vest badges should be implemented.

It's just so satisfying that is King, who is an awful journalist.

It's not surprising that someone who is a professional lapdog masquerading as a journalist doesn't put a lot of thought into anything he does.

So fucking stupid. Was it that hard to wait until the early morning?

That's a deliberate choice. The story is going to be about the protest instead of that abortion of a press conference.

And purposely risk lives? I don't know if I can believe that. But if true, those responsible should be punished.

I don't think the lives of black people are the top concern of St. Louis County.

And that's exactly what's happening.

It reinforces the helpful narrative that that's just how those people are.

Christ, Wilson even testified that Brown's hands were up when he shot him. But he said he "looked like a demon" so I guess why even have a trial at this point?

On cue, Fox is blaming Al Sharpton for the riots.

Here is a considered take from a privileged white Australian man

The new racism: this time the villains are not white
