#Ferguson Sunday

Watch Bassem Mari destroy CNN's resident Right Winger Michael Smerconish as he tries to defend the execution of Mike Brown by advancing right wing talking points.
Now is the time for state and federal officials to keep protesters safe from police violence. If you agree with Baeem Masri's powerful words take action and urge Gov. Nixon to secure a special prosecutor before it's too late.
And take a moment to also demand President Barack Obama and A.G. Holder do everything in their power to keep protesters safe from police violence post grand jury decision:…

The Ferguson Grand Jury will reconvene on Monday
The timing of the decision remains unclear, even after Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency about a week ago, fueling speculation that a decision was imminent. But the decision could be delayed until the January 7 deadline, reports say.
I wonder what is taking so long?  Here is my theory (not to be confused with facts), either the grand jury is afraid to indict and afraid not to indict, or, there are holdouts for an indictment.  Which is why this case never should have gone before a grand jury in the first place.  

It's fairly common in Missouri for a prosecutor to first file a complaint charging an individual with a crime, then go later to a grand jury asking it to indict the person for that offense. In this case, St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch hasn't publicly suggested any particular charge against Wilson.
The media is stoking the flames of black violence if the grand jury doesn't indict Darren Wilson, with the false narrative black folks are going to riot if they don't get their way because that's just what they do.  It's not about getting our way, it's about justice, on in this case injustice.

RedEye tiptoeing away from the computer to go pray for justice.
