    This is for all the left wingers out there.

    So for the sake of argument, let's presume the verdict was an injustice. If so, was the violence and plunder warranted?

    This is my afternoon Fox Radio commentary. I hope you will share it.

    Amid the smoldering ruins of Ferguson, Missouri - I've been pondering a question. Where does Police Officer Darren Wilson go to get his life back?

    Based on the findings of the grand jury - the only thing Officer Wilson is guilty of -- is not getting killed by Michael Brown.

    I know the truth doesn't seem to matter all that much to Al Sharpton's narrative but the truth is that Officer Wilson was fighting for his life on that fateful day.

    That's the God's honest - Grand Jury truth.

    I hope Officer Wilson finds peace in this world - a patch of ground to start over - but to be honest - his life will never be the same. I suspect he will always look over his shoulder. There's a Facebook page calling for his execution - did you know that?

    As near as I can tell -- Officer Wilson's only "crime" that day was to come home alive.

    Looks like Brown's family incited more violence.

    More gentle giants I presume.

    The Brown's family lawyer says the federal government is still investigating this and he suspects a civil rights charge will be brought and he still has a wrongful death claim to make in civil court. So it is far from over.

    Who cares whether it's understandable? Theft is also understandable.

    So you think that Officer Wilson's life was in imminent danger when he fired a shot into the top of a man's head who had already been shot 6 times?

    If he's tried to kill you, and he's bigger and stronger than you, and still charging at you after you've shot him 6 times... better shoot him some more right? What am I missing?

    How likely is it that Brown was "charging" anybody after he had already been shot 6 times?

    Maybe he should have shot him with kryptonite if Wilson's story is to be believed.

    Wilson is 6'4" and 210 lbs BTW though he made himself sound like a helpless infant.

    Perhaps the answer is to stop hiring police to protect black communities. I wouldn't take the job for twice the money that Wilson made.

    Good thing though you could hardly have been any worse than Wilson.

    I read somewhere that the more credible witness(es?) (i.e. whose stories didn't keep changing) backed up Wilson's claim that Brown was charging at him. If you don't believe it then whatever.
