Liberal Democrats should be neither seen nor heard. Nor should they be in a place of power or responsibility.
This is especially true of the criminal justice system.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, a liberal and living proof of life after brain death, called for, wait for it. You guessed it. He wants Officer Darren Wilson prosecuted. Let’s ignore the facts and play to the crowd.
He wants a “vigorous prosecution.”
From the Daily Caller:
A vigorous prosecution must now be pursued,” Nixon said in a five minute video address posted to his website Tuesday.
“The democratically elected St. Louis county prosecutor and the attorney general of the United States each have a job to do,” said Nixon, a Democrat.
“Their obligation to achieve justice in the shooting death of Michael Brown must be carried out thoroughly, promptly, and correctly,” said Nixon of investigators.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder plans to visit Ferguson on Wednesday to meet with federal law enforcement officials and community leaders. Forty FBI investigators traveled to Ferguson over the weekend to interview witnesses.
Nixon has not directly justified his call for a strong prosecution. He has not indicated that he has any information on the shooting that has not been made public.
Wilson, a six-year police veteran with a clean disciplinary record, has not even been arrested or charged with a crime. A grand jury is set to convene on Wednesday to determine if he will be charged.
Wilson, who is on paid leave during the investigation, has reportedly claimed that he shot Brown after the man hit him in the face and struggled to gain control of his service weapon.
Someone should tell this raging moron Nixon that the American criminal justice system does not prosecute people for the hell of it or to make political points.
I spent ten years of my career as a prosecuting attorney and I can call you, prosecutions are supposed to be based on evidence.
The evidence in this case is clear and convincing. Michael Brown was a little wannabe gang banger who robbed a store minutes before he was killed. He hit the officer, went for his gun, ran, then turned and charged the officer.
The officer has injuries consistent with his story, including a fracture to his eye socket. Brown’s injuries are consistent with Officer Wilson’s statement. Witnesses back Officer Wilson’s statement.
According to reports, Wilson has fled the state of Missouri in fear of his life. He should be when idiots like Missouri Governor Jay Nixon are fueling the fire.
Officer Wilson deserves a medal for what he did. Jay Nixon deserves a jail cell.
