In a statement released Monday night, the American Civil Liberties Union affirmed their belief that police are not entitled to fair and just treatment under the law.
Despite the fact that a grand jury spent months evaluating vast amounts of evidence, listened to three coroners’ autopsy reports, and examined myriad ballistic reports and witness testimonies, the ACLU condemned the grand jury’s conclusion not to indict Darren Wilson for the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
The ACLU asserted in a statement delivered by Jeffery Mittman, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, that Brown’s death is part of an “alarming national trend of officers using excessive force against people of color, often during routine encounters.”
The fact that a Ferguson grand jury determined that officer Wilson used his weapon in self-defense—after the 6′ 5″, 290-lb Brown struggled with Wilson in the patrol car, punching him in the face and later charging at him—seems not to be relevant for Mittman and the ACLU.

Louis Head, an ex-con who is married to Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, was with McSpadden outside the Ferguson Police Department headquarters Monday evening as prosecutor Robert McCulloch disclosed that a grand jury declined to vote an indictment against Officer Darren Wilson in the August 9 shooting.
After consoling a weeping McSpadden, the 38-year-old Head–who was standing atop a platform in the middle of the agitated crowd of several hundred protesters–began screaming “Burn this b**** down!” He did this at least ten times, and at one point yelled for a microphone so that he could broadcast his incendiary message beyond the range of his unamplified voice.
While trying to incite the crowd, Head (pictured above) was wearing a commemorative t-shirt with the words “I Am Mike Brown” and a beanie, both of which bore a silkscreened photo of Brown in his high school cap and gown.
In the days preceding the grand jury announcement, McSpadden and Michael Brown, Sr. issued statements calling for peaceful protests in the wake of the panel’s decision. Head, however, counseled arson. After a night of chaos and rioting in Ferguson, at least 10 businesses and two police cars were destroyed or damaged by fire, and 61 individuals were arrested.
Head is an ex-convict whose rap sheet includes two felony narcotics convictions, according to state records. He pleaded guilty in 1997 to a marijuana distribution charge and was put in a shock incarceration program and placed on probation for five years. After violating probation, Head’s release was revoked and he was remanded to state prison.

The Planned Parenthood abortion business is aggressively opposing the decision in Ferguson, Missouri by a grand jury to not bring an indictment of a police officer who shot an African-American man.
The decision not to bring charges has sparked more racial tensions nationwide, and some black residents of the small Missouri town last night engaged in violence and illegal activities, ranging from arson to burglary to respond to the decision.
Though the events in Ferguson have nothing to do with abortion, Planned Parenthood and its pro-abortion CEO Cecile Richards have been very active on Twitter condemning the decision and stoking the racial divide. Ironically, as the abortion giant jumps in the debate, it makes no mention of the fact that it preys on black Americans and aborts black babies at alarming rates.
Planned Parenthood claims that “black lives matter” but that apparently doesn’t apply to black unborn children.
In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
The targeting of black babies in abortion is not limited to New York City. According to the CDC, a majority of Black or Hispanic babies were aborted in New Jersey (55.9 percent), the District of Columbia (64.8 percent) and Georgia (73.2 percent).

The majority of stores that were damaged or completely destroyed during Monday night’s violent riots in Ferguson were minority owned. Fire Departments around the St. Louis County Area put out 25 structural fires caused by vandals and looters following the announcement from the grand jury that Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the death of Mike Brown.
The Walgreens, located at the intersection of Hereford Avenue and North Florissant Road, was completely engulfed in the flames around 10:00 Monday night.
Roughly 30 minutes later, the Little Caesars at 200 North Florissant Road was fully engulfed in flames. The St. Louis Fish and Chicken Grill was also on fire.
The Beauty Town/JC Wireless store, the Public Storage facility, Sams Meat Market, Fashions R Boutique, Title Max, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, Heal STL and Red’s BBQ, all of which are located at West Florissant Avenue, were also set on fire during the riots.
The Dellwood City Hall was also set on fire overnight.
In total, firefighters said around 25 buildings were set on fire.

Congressional Bigot…er…Black Caucus head Congresswoman Marcia Fudge issued a statement on behalf of the caucus denouncing the decision by the Ferguson grand jury not to indict police officer Darren Wilson, calling it a “slap in the face to Americans.”
The Ferguson Grand Jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown is a miscarriage of justice. It is a slap in the face to Americans nationwide who continue to hope and believe that justice will prevail.
This decision seems to underscore an unwritten rule that Black lives hold no value; that you may kill Black men in this country without consequences or repercussions. This is a frightening narrative for every parent and guardian of Black and brown children, and another setback for race relations in America.
My heart goes out to Michael Brown’s loved ones, and to the loved ones of all the Michael Browns we have buried in this country.
An estimated 503 Black Americans are murdered each day by other Blacks, but let’s ignore that and get all out of joint about a Black thug getting shot by a white cop.

San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer, the largest donor in the 2014 election cycle, says the way to win the debate on the environmental issues he cares about is to emphasize how money in elections and industry lobbyists are hindering a healthier environment.
People may not inherently care about big-picture ideas, he said at a panel discussion on climate change Wednesday sponsored by the Center for American Progress. But they do care about special breaks for big business and the influence big money has on policy.
“People are very worried about the idea that money in politics is getting special privileges, and to the extent they ever see that actual connection between political favors and any kind of contribution, they are very upset about it,” Steyer said.
Steyer failed to mention that Americans won’t see much impact on policy from the nearly $67 million he spent on the 2014 cycle because most of his favored candidates lost.

Welcome to Phil Robertson round two, aka, the petition for TLC to cancel “19 Kids and Counting,” due to the stars of the program’s opinion that Liberals disagree with.
A petition on Change.org states that the Duggar’s religious views have evolved into openly inciting “anti-gay fear-mongering” and that such views have no place on television anymore. Of course, not allowing homosexuals to do absolutely anything they want, anywhere is how Liberals define “anti-gay fear mongering”.
Jim Wissick of San Jose, California started the petition after the Duggars lent their name and finances to block an ordinance in Arkansas that would place transgender and homosexual citizens in a special protected status, allowing them special rights as well as greater access to children in public restrooms.
This, of course, is nothing new. Liberals tried to get “19 Kids” cancelled last year because of Jim Bob Duggar’s Pro-Life comments at a Values Voter Summit.
Liberals are inherently closed-mind and become absolutely livid at the idea of anyone being allowed to express an idea they disagree with. Fortunately, for now, TLC has ignored idiots like this, unlike A&E which pretended to “suspend” Phil Robertson during Duck Dynasty’s shooting break last year.
