I think we all expected this…


There will be no indictment and no trial for the police officer who shot and killed the unarmed Michael Brown. Not even manslaughter. Not even a disciplinary action.

It is very interesting to me that the response of so many of my own conservative friends has been to celebrate. Apparently, environmental regulations and executive orders are examples of government tyranny and oppression but when an agent of the State guns down an unarmed black citizen it is automatically the citizen’s fault and we should uncritically back the State.

It’s almost as if they only care about tyranny and oppression if it might affect them.
