Yet, from the moment the news was out that Darren Wilson had killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, I have said that only an idiot would believe that Wilson would be held to answer at trial – or that anyone with the power to do so would ever even say that there was probable cause for that to happen.
As Scott Greenfield has already written – no matter how early I get up, I’ll never beat him to the punch with a blog article on an important issue –
That the grand jury did not indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson was a foregone conclusion.
A foregone conclusion only because
It ended as it was meant to end, as the foregone conclusion demanded it end.
