After meeting with cool-headed civil rights experts like Al Sharpton in the White House, Barack Obama announced plans to spend $263 million on "improving" police training ("Always remember to say please get on the ground...") and supplying 50,000 body cameras to police officers so that criminal lawyers can find even more ways to make life miserable for cops.
Philosophically, we're in favor of cameras for cops (had officer Darren Wilson been wearing one, Michael Brown's thuggish death would have been quickly covered up by the Left) - we're just afraid of how the video records will be abused to hinder law enforcement.
Meanwhile, we're sick of the narrative about Michael Brown being a "gentle giant" who was brutally murdered before he was able to find a cure for cancer, write the Great American Novel, or sign a multi-million dollar contract with the Rams.
The security video on which the above cartoon is based makes it entirely clear that Brown was a huge, thieving bully. The Grand Jury found that he was the aggressor in his final confrontation with the law. He was no saint...and frankly, no great loss to society.
And speaking of the Grand Jury decision, Eric Holder made a speech in Martin Luther King Jr's former church in which he drew applause by saying that the preposterously-named "Justice" Department is still pursuing its own investigations into Michael Brown's death. One which presumably won't be encumbered by the physical evidence and witness testimony which has already exonerated officer Wilson.
Holder also declared that he will be instituting a plan to "end racial profiling, once and for all." Presumably by making it illegal for crime victims to actually describe their assailants.
And finally, regardless of race, creed, or color, we believe that anyone who showboats with the "Hands up, don't shoot" gesture is a complete and total race-baiting idiot. Even (or perhaps especially) if they happen to be members of the entirely segregated Congressional Black Caucus.
