While prosecutor Robert McCulloch gave a rather extensive review earlier of the evidence that led a grand jury not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, it seems a few of the finer points of the investigation slipped past those who believed Wilson should be charged.
Harold Itzkowitz of The National Memo, for example, has taken away from McCulloch’s presentation that Michael Brown was sentenced to death for “stealing Cigarillos and jaywalking.”
@HaroldItz you left out strong armed robbery and assaulting an officer.

@HaroldItz No but attacking a police office my result in an escalation of force under US law. Unarmed doe not equal 'no threat".

@IcebergFive I haven't seen the evidence and neither have you. All you have is your racism
