Civil Rights Group Blasts Grand Jury Failure to Indict White Killer Cop

'Open season on people of color'

Why should anyone offer an institutional critique of racist St. Louis County and prison-state America when Jay Nixon (Dope-Missouri) might run for Senate in 2016?

Because it's right.

From the Center for Constitutional Rights:

"Today, Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) Executive Director Vincent Warren released the following statement in response to the news that the Grand Jury in the Michael Brown case failed to indict Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who killed him.

"It’s difficult to see how anyone in the community can have faith in the system at this point: the failure to indict sends the clear message that it's open season on people of color. All resistance must be viewed through that lens, and the focus must remain on the injustice of a white police officer getting away – yet again – with killing a young unarmed Black man. We stand with the community in anger and in mourning. We stand with the people in the streets of Ferguson, just as the world stood with protesters in Tahrir Square, in Gaza, in Hong Kong. The world must learn: Black lives matter."
