Why did i want an indictment in Ferguson - so a public trial would ensue – witnesses come out of the shadows and the story brought into the open. Given the higher bar of justice there’s a reasonable chance Wilson would’ve walked, but Michael Brown would’ve had his day in court before a jury of his real peers – the entire country - and we might’ve learned something more that what we already know – how to choke back dismay at another revelation of the scalding hot racial war that burns in the center of this nations soul… I stayed up past midnight watching Ferguson burn to the waterline. Horrific violence, way beyond the CGI orchestrations of a big budget movie – unless it is Battle of Algiers – once violence like this starts it runs its course – the only way to stop it is before it starts by altering the conditions of circumstance – for instance don’t announce grand jury findings at the beginning of a long dark night… and place law enforcement around the perimeter of the prospective engagement, not in the direct center – Custer made that mistake - and maybe it’s not such a good idea to have the President of the United States intoning wise words and good intentions in one half of a split screen with burning buildings and zooming tear gas grenades – another argument for how ineffective the better angels of our social compact become once the rumble in the streets rolls out… So now the Brown family get to retire to their special space in the private hell they will forever share with the families of Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till and Medgar Evers and uncountable hordes of others killed in this country for the crime of wearing their skin - and in nights to come Ferguson's peace officers get another chance to make it right. The malevolent genie born from a random encounter on Canfield Drive has escaped its container and become a permanent part of the dark viscera of American racial consciousness. It will be out there waiting.

Aleksandar Budjevac Thank you for your vision of the event's criticism, and the society in which you live, and even today in our society in general. Truly impressive on your side. I look at this important your work and your resentment, of not solving the problem of racial difference. It is very healthy for you to speak up on this healthy way. So I guess we eliminate the bitterness and beauty. Every good maestro, Jared. I am impressed and your work and your words!

James A Crawford Thank You Jared, Violence begets Violence, Hate begets Hate, Ignorance begets Ignorance and Love will begat Love. We are all the Human Race, but Racism is man made. Whatever forms taken whether Color, Religion, Economics, National, Language, Creed or Football Team, Etc. The Media and those that profit from racism will perpetuate this problem for greed until everyone wakes up to see the truth. If that light will ever shine. However Fear, Frustration and Anxiety may always Dim the light of that Truth. IMHO.
