    St. Louis Prosecutor Re-opened Michael Brown Case, Will Not Bring Charges

    St. Louis Prosecutor Re-opened Michael Brown Case, Will Not Bring Charges

    The Michael Brown shooting launched Black Lives Matter to national prominence, based on the lie that Brown was shot with his hands up, while pleading ‘don’t shoot.’ For the third time, Officer Darren Wilson will not be criminally charged.

    Listen to this article

    I was not aware that, despite a grand jury decision not to indict in 2014 and a Justice Department investigation that cleared officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown, a St. Louis prosecutor had reopened the case.

    That prosecutor just announced that there would be no charges against Wilson:

    In 2018, St. Louis County voters elected Wesley Bell as the county prosecutor, the first African-American elected to the position. Bell defeated longtime prosecutor Bob McCulloch, who became a target of Black activists, unhappy with his handling of the investigation into Brown’s death.

    On Thursday, Bell met with McSpadden to give her some news she probably didn’t want to hear. Bell has reviewed the investigation into the shooting death of Brown, at the hands of former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, and he’s reached the same conclusion McCulloch did: There is not enough evidence to charge Wilson with a crime in Brown’s death.

    “In the end, we cannot ethically bring this case to trial,” Bell told me in an interview before he announced the results of the investigation at a news conference. “Our investigation does not exonerate Darren Wilson.”

    Michael Brown was not unlawfully killed. As we have written here many times, Brown was shot when he punched Wilson in the face and tried to steal his gun. Here is a sample of our coverage from 2014 and 2015:

    When you see Brown on the Black Lives Matter list of people allegedly unlawfully killed, understand that his name should not be on that list.

    Understand also that when Black Lives Matter protesters march chanting “hands up, don’t shoot,” they are perpetuating a fabricated narrative of the Brown case.

    Here is the fundamental point that I made in 2019, and which remains true, Five years ago Michael Brown died, and a movement based on lies was born.

    If the people at Cornell who tried to cancel me for speaking this truth can’t handle the truth, that’s their problem, not mine.

    Reiterating in public that a man accused or murder — where he has pleaded justification — can literally, technically, never be exonerated (because it is impossible to prove a negative) does not serve the cause of justice.

    Its sole value is to keep old wounds fresh.

    The prosecutor is guilty of contributing to incitement to riot.

    Look at the nonsensical, Orwellian, totalitarian Newspeak of the vile Dhimmi-crats — Wilson hasn’t been “exonerated” — as if it’s up to the State to opine on that, in the absence of not charging, and, slandering an innocent man, in the process.

    These people are vicious, evil and dangerous, willing to subvert and distort law, truth and facts, to serve their political aims.

    Being exonerated is not a thing. There is no such thing as being exonerated. A prosecutor charges one with a crime, or they do not. If they do not charge, a person is not not-guilty, they’re not innocent and they’re not exonerated. They are simply a citizen going about their own life.

    Darren Wilson is certainly a hero and role model, which Kim Gardner and Wesley Bell definitely are not.

    Milhouse is deliberately endorsing the following system:

    If you are accused of a crime for which there is no evidence, you should forever live with a Sword of Damocles hanging over your head. At any time, for any politician’s purposes, you must be ready and able to muster the resources, in money, time, and physical danger, to re-prove your innocence.

    Any well coached “eyewitness” can be used for this, while your evidence disproving it disintegrates, the witnesses who testified for you become unwilling to invest their own time and money to re-hash the case, and a newly appointed political judge presides over it. All the while, you, your family, your current employer, and those same witnesses face the very real possibility that their identities will be revealed and they will be subject to the “Minneapolis Effect” of having their lives and property threatened.

    That is what has happened, is happening, and will continue to happen as long as Milhouse and his fellow leftists can enable it. You will be punished by process, forever.

    Don’t let him lie you into believing otherwise.
