In Ferguson, as the Justice Department made very clear, all credible evidence supported officer Darren Wilson’s account of a justified, legal and necessary shooting. Brown robbed a store, fought for the police officer’s gun and then physically charged the cop.People, this isn't debatable any more.
If you still don't want to believe this and won't read the DOJ report, read my summary or a very brave piece by The Post's Jonathan Capehart:
"Hands up, don’t shoot" became the mantra of a movement. But it was wrong, built on a lie.Or John Maynard Keynes or Paul Samuelson may or may not have said: "When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do?"
It is imperative that we continue marching for and giving voice to those killed in racially charged incidents at the hands of police and others. But we must never allow ourselves to march under the banner of a false narrative on behalf of someone who would otherwise offend our sense of right and wrong. And when we discover that we have, we must acknowledge it, admit our error and keep on marching. That’s what I’ve done here.
