Riots are caused by high emotional folks who don't need much of a reason to riot as long as it is race discrimination as they see it....not necessarily based on any facts, as in this case. After reviewing the entire manuscript from the Grand Jury, I am in agreement. There was NO crime by Officer Wilson. Now, as an experienced field LEO that has worked the Watts riots and several more in high crime areas, I would have to counsel any one not to take on the high probability of violent reaction without back up on the scene....had this been the case, this probably would have had a much different outcome.

Additionally, the city's Chief of Police does not appear to have a can do attitude and the guts to go forward in stopping the violence, even though he had hundreds of police and a couple thousand National Guardsmen at his disposal. There were sufficient enforcement to have kept the damage to a much smaller loss. The Governor is ultimately to blame for his lack of common sense.

Why did someone release testimony from a Grand Jury. That is a violation of law. No testimony or evidence can be released at any time. Al Sharpton and his Criminal followers don't need a reason to riot, only a place. Nothing but a bunch a thugs looking for a place to steal and cause havic. The President, a criminal himself, needs to keep his ignorant nose out of local business.

The "conflicting" eye-witnesses statements were found to be either completely false, embelished, and/or in opposition to physical evidence. The simple fact is that Black "Americans" want to lynch anyone who is White. It is really that simple.

@ Richard. I totally agree with what you are saying. I know how people blatantly light to hurt others for their own gain. I have FIRST HAND experience with dealing with a person whose face changed to a demon-like appearance before my eyes. Scared the BLANK out of me! Also tired of the entitlement issues. My heart goes out to both families. Those that came from other states or cities seem to have been the ones that caused all of this to escalate out of control. Those individuals should be prosecuted. It is sad that businesses were destroyed and people put out of work , all because of this senseless stupidity. The Brown family pleaded with people to protest peacefully, but that went on deaf ears. NO one won in this tragedy.
