No justice; No peace! chants in Ferguson are actually saying, We want revenge!
The Washington Times ^ | August 18, 2014 | Ernest Istook

In Ferguson, Missouri, a desire for revenge has replaced a desire for justice.

A police shooting was the first tragedy there, but more tragedies have piled on top of it. Those who complain that the officer rushed to judgment are doing their own rush to judgment themselves. They seek to dictate the consequences even without knowing. And unlike the officer, they have zero first-hand knowledge.

Instead of waiting out the investigation, they’re chanting, “No justice; No peace!” as a politically correct slogan that actually means, “We want revenge!” That attitude makes bad things become worse.

The police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown was the first tragedy. Ferguson police compounded the impact when the young man’s body was left lying in the street, uncovered and highly visible to all in the black neighborhood where the shooting happened.

Some media and black leaders quickly stoked outrage and rushed to judgment— acting with the very haste for which they condemn the policeman who fired the fatal shots. Officer Darren Wilson says he defended himself when attacked by Mr. Brown, and says that Mr. Brown tried to take the officer’s gun. Video evidence of Mr. Brown’s strong-arm tactics in allegedly robbing a convenience store that day is not proof that Officer Wilson was attacked. But the video demonstrates how the 6-foot-4, 292-pound Mr. Brown was physically intimidating and had been willing to use his strong-arm strength only minutes before the shooting....

The goal is race wars before the elections.

“Tragedy” be damned.
A thug on his way to ‘greater things’ got his just desserts.
It’s now about the PROTECTION OF OUR BLACK CRIMINAL CLASS—at (literally ) all costs!

Revenge? Or just the desire to kill and destroy anyone they can blame for their own situation and excuse taking anything they want.

Yep they could care less about the truth.
Justice to them is the cop thrown in jail. Facts be damned.
All I want is the truth. If the policeman is in the wrong then he should be tried in a court of law.
Since al & jessie & holder etc. have become involved we will probably never know the truth, and any trial will be a kangaroo court.

I have read that more of the eye witness accounts confirm Officer Darren Wilson.

This morning on the early FOX show, they had a picture of a voter registration booth set up on the street at the place that Brown was shot.

To democrats, this is a get out the vote effort.

Two signs being held up at Ferguson said this is the “Negro Spring”, the seasons are a bit off, but I wonder will it become acceptable in the near future to remove the parenthesis and make this a statement of universal fact? With Waco conspirator and chief race war man Holder in charge I’m betting the chances have risen substantially. My bet is the Chicago suburbs are the next place for democratic party Problem, Reaction, Solution racial politics/war.

Lots of “peaceful protestors” and rioters got killed, tortured, attacked by rival movements and sent to prison and disappeared during the Arab Spring. Did they ever think of that? I mean a LOT of them.

6-foot-4, 292-pound Mr. Brown apparently didn’t eat Michelle O’s lunches in school.

Sure he did, then he ate a few kindergartners and 3rd graders to round out his meal.
