So tell me America, you feeling fundamentally transformed yet?

After the #Ferguson Grand Jury decision, a unanimous decision[NOTE: I mis-heard the verdict tally at the press conference, there IS NO WAY to know if unanimous or not. My apologies.] by - it shouldn't need to be said but does - white and black jurors, who actually heard and deliberated upon all of the evidence, they concluded that there was not enough evidence to charge the police officer with wrong doing.

A short time later President Obama came out and said:
"First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law. And so, we need to accept that this decision was the grand jury’s to make. There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. It’s an understandable reaction."
Understandable?! To Friggin' WHO?! Did any of those who 'are deeply disappointed', have any rational reason whatsoever for feeling that way?

Better yet, did they have any, ANY, basis for presuming the police officer to be guilty, but for the fact that he was white, and his assailant was black? Do you know what that's called? RACISM, that's what!
Walgren's looted and burned

And what were these 'disappointed' thugs upset about? 'No Justice, no peace'?

Justice?! For WHO?! The Grand Jury sat for an unusually long period of time, heard all of the evidence, and determined that justice would be served by not bringing an indictment against the police officer. Just how in the hell is it 'understandable' or a means of furthering 'justice' to demand that the officer be killed, for doing what the Grand Jury could not find fault with?

And where in the hell is the Nat'l Guard in ‪#‎Ferguson‬?! Our Gov. Nixon, putz in chief, declared that people's lives and businesses would be defended - How?! Where?! One of the primary reasons why we have a government, is to maintain law and order - we all saw endless loops of Nat'l Guard troops being trucked in to the well-to-do town of Clayton - where in the hell are they?!

Ferguson's business, Ferguson's people, Ferguson's property and livelihoods are not being defended! WTH Governor!

This poor neighborhood, its businesses are being burned & looted, and even for those that might manage to go untouched (somehow), this is Thanksgiving! The Thanksgiving shopping period is here, which they'd probably pinned their hopes of salvaging what the earlier riots damage had done to them - what are they going to do?! Most will likely be closed. And the businesses that served them will have certainly have their earnings reduced as well.

Little Caesar's Pizza looted and burned
What do you think is going to happen to their employees? To their families? To their kids? What do you think is going to happen to this community after all of this?

Every damn last one of you who've posted your idiotic 'hands up don't shoot' and 'no justice no peace' B.S., Every damn last one of you who've been supporting and egging this agitation on to this inevitable point of violence... let me put this clearly: You are scum.

How despicable.

When President Obama was elected he famously said that we were days away from:
"fundamentally transforming America!"
So tell me America, look around today, not only at Ferguson MO, but Oakland, L.A., Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Washington D.C. and all air traffic diverted away from St. Louis - take a good look and tell me:
Are you feeling fundamentally transformed yet?
Police Car set aflame

So you tell me America, does this fundamental transformation seem more like Progress, or Regress to you?

Watching the crowd last night, I had the feeling they'd be rioting even if a grave injustice had been done and the officer was burned at the stake instead of being cleared.

I would have loved to see people standing their ground in the area, armed and protecting what's theirs. All those boarded-up windows didn't protect a thing. And the looters, it seemed, were just looking for an excuse to pillage; watching them stagger away from the shops with arms and baskets full of stolen goodies, they have their Thanksgiving in their hands. Apparently, they will be feasting this year on bottles of soda and packages of junk food.

what in the world did little Caesar's or walgreens do to those people looting and destroying property???? they are acting like spoiled bratty children, they need a good spanking!

The results of political correctness is destruction.
Add to that all the lies Obama, Holder, Nixon and the left wing media have repeated, ad nauseum and we see the looters, vandals, arsonists,thugs, and shooters enabled.

The main problem with our justice system is racists like Obama and Holder corrupting it.
Obama wants to "fix" our justice system to serve his racist and fascist agenda.

All the idiots that support Obama's agenda are anti-justice scumbags!
They don't want justice, they want a license to kill, steal and destroy, truth be damned.

Excellent post, Van.

IRT the rioting in Ferguson, I like this comment made at Powerline:

Diggs Cleveland
Kinda answers the eternal Leftard question: "Why would anyone need an assault rifle with a high-capacity magazine?"

Van Harvey said...

Julie & Ben, much as the media tried to overlook it, people DID take their arms and stand out in front to defend their businesses - theirs didn't get torched for some reason.

I can't do the kinky thingy on my phone at the moment:

Van Harvey said...

Sheesh. "Linky thingy".

Good to hear people were standing their ground. I did wonder why the pattern of burned businesses was so widely dispersed.

Hey Van, I know a guy that knows a guy that can get you a phone that does do the kinky thingy.
