The rallying cry in Ferguson Missouri has been "justice for Michael Brown."
The question is what is justice? Justice is that the facts of the case are investigated thoroughly and regardless of the outcome of that investigation the family and friends of Michael Brown along with the citizens of Ferguson and this country need to accept the outcome no matter what it reveals.
If the grand jury that is being convened hears the evidence and determines this was a justified shooting then so be it. On the other hand should this grand jury decide there is enough evidence that this shooting was not justified then the officer should will be prosecuted. We have a legal and court system in this country that is well capable of getting the facts and trying this case if necessary. The outcome should be accepted on both sides of the issue regardless.
The people who have jumped to conclusions need to back off and let the legal system work regardless of the outcome. No investigation of this caliber can be done in a weeks time. There are witnesses to interview, evidence to collect, lab test to be done and this all takes time.
There is simply no justification for the violence going on as a result of this shooting. There is certainly no excuse for people like Al Sharpton who continually race bait and throw gas on an already raging fire.
There have been similar cases in past years right here in our area. I am thankful for a wonderful town like Chattanooga where cooler heads seem to prevail.
So the truth about “justice for Michael Brown” is simply, let the legal system do its job and justice will prevail.
