O.J. Simpson Supporters
Also Love Michael Brown

The rioting in Ferguson and demonstrations in other cities is depicted as an uprising against systemic persecution of Blacks by police agencies across the nation.

That’s a load of crap.

The critics of cops have a pet statistic they trot out to prove their point, but which in fact destroys it: Despite comprising just 12 percent of the population, Black men and women make up 40 percent of prison inmates.

That’s because Blacks commit 40 percent of the crime. With all the reviews and appeals inherent in our justice system, it’s virtually impossible for an innocent person to be convicted. Almost without exception, if you’re in prison you earned it.

Before technology got in the way Michael Brown was painted as “a gentle giant” with “strong Christian beliefs” who was looking forward to college. The world had lost, if not a future brain surgeon, a religious man destined for a selfless life in service to others.

Then the store video was released and we see Mr. Gentle taking a $50 box of cigars minutes before his death, then strong-arming the little Indian shopkeeper who confronted him. If you have eyes to see, the video shows

Michael Brown as he was: an arrogant, oversized thug and thief with a mean streak and a bad attitude. Just another prison inmate in the making.

But the video and weeks of grand jury testimony and all the writers in the world will not change a single mind in that portion of the Black community that still thinks O.J. Simpson was innocent.

They will shovel their load of crap, and perceive it as gold, till their dying days.
