Not enough evidence

I am wondering why the news media are slanting all reports of Michael Brown’s death in Missouri toward sympathy to the black cause.

While the death of this young man was a tragedy, the news media apparently have lost sight of the fact this young man was a suspected thief, evading police and attacking a police officer, bringing this on himself.

On Tuesday’s noon news, there were two black lawyers, as well as Al Sharpton, giving long dissertations on the need for reform.

Twelve people on the grand jury, including three blacks, didn’t find enough evidence to bring charges against the officer who fired the fatal shots.
