Nobody else will say it, so I will.
The evidence is clear as spring water. Michael Brown orchestrated the circumstances of his own death. He has no claim on our sympathy. He was not a victim.
Brown attacked and attempted to kill or do great bodily harm to a police officer who stopped him in relation to a robbery Brown had just committed. For his trouble, Brown was shot and killed by the officer who did nothing more or less than his duty. The blame for this unexceptional criminal event and police response should be apportioned thus: Michael Brown, 100 percent — Officer Darren Wilson, 0 percent.
The demands that the officer be charged with a crime for protecting his own life and doing his job are outrageous. Those who make them should be condemned, not catered to. The incident does not demonstrate that something is wrong with “the system.” It does not demonstrate racism. It demonstrates that committing strong-arm robberies and attacking police officers doing their duty are really bad ideas, and are actions that can, justifiably, get you hurt or killed. So don’t do it.
