Moments ago, a grand jury decided not to indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014.
After Michael was killed, authorities allowed his body to remain in the street for four hours.
Michael Ferguson was not armed. He was shot six times.
Darren Wilson was put on paid administrative leave. He stayed home and continued to draw a salary from the city in the aftermath.
Then, a grand jury decided he did nothing wrong, and the police department punished him with what was essentially a paid vacation.
The message this sends is that the law may gun down an unarmed black teenager without reprisal.
That shooting an unarmed civilian teenager is okay.
Well, it's not okay.
It is not okay to draw a handgun, fire six bullets into an unarmed child
It is not okay to receive a paycheck while you are being investigated for a questionable shooting.
It is not okay for Darren Wilson to continue to carry a badge or enforce the law.
IT IS NOT OKAY.
