No Indictment For Darren Wilson

Does this news honestly shock anyone?

Folks, we live in a country where the president has the unadulterated power to circumvent due process and target American citizens for assassination if they’re believed to be remotely associated with terrorists, even if there isn’t any clear evidence to prove it. If you’re shocked that a white police officer can avoid indictment for shooting an unarmed black teenager, you’re simply not paying attention. In this country, authority grants you a license to kill with impunity and immunity. If you’re in charge of “upholding the law,” that makes you above the law, and everyone else is freaked.

Again, can you honestly be shocked by this? Because you shouldn't. You really shouldn't.
