Liberals are crying racism concerning the grand jury’s verdict in Ferguson. Case in point: Danny Vinik of The New Republic:
The evidence itself—and the entire criminal justice system—have lost credibility in their eyes. Due to years of racist policies, Ferguson residents have lost all faith that the case would be handled fairly.
Who can blame them?
Racist policies? By whom exactly? The city of Ferguson? St. Louis County? The State of Missouri? The Obama Administration? I’m going to need a lot more than a blanket declaration that “racist policies” are responsible for Officer Darren Wilson not being indicted yesterday.
As for the case being handled fairly, many of the Ferguson protesters’ idea of fairness is Darren Wilson’s head on a stick.
Vinik objects to St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch not recusing himself because a) his father was a cop who was shot by a black man and b) his use of the grand jury as an investigative body was unusual. Yet Vinik does not accuse McCulloch of having behaved in an illegal or unethical manner. McCulloch did his job and the grand jury did theirs. Unfortunately, this is lost on those consumed by white, liberal guilt.
