On August 9, 2014, Ferguson, MO, Police Officer Darren Wilson shot dead Michael Brown.

Our first post about it was on August 11, 2014, as rioting broke out. We kept the coverage non-evaluative. We learned from prior cases, such as Trayvon Martin, not to accept at face value racial and other narratives...

Facts don’t matter in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Trayvon Martin’s shooting planted the seeds for the movement. Contrary to popular myth, Trayvon was not unlawfully shot and killed by George Zimmerman. The trial evidence was overwhelming that Trayvon attacked Zimmerman with a punch to the nose and when shot was on...

Last weekend a cop shot of a fleeing unarmed black man in Charleston, SC.  

Not all the facts are in, but the video (apparently captured by a cell phone) is damning; it shows the cop firing at the fleeing black man several times, finally bringing him to the ground.  There seems...

Yes, I agree that #BlackLivesMatter. So do all other lives, including the lives of police (of all races) who keep us from the abyss.

Remember Officer David Smith never lived to tell about enraged perp who stole his service gun.

One of the most recent of the seemingly never-ending succession of Progressive complaints about the Ferguson Grand Jury is that the Grand Jury’s decision not to indict is inherently flawed because they were permitted to consider self-defense.

Those professing this argument rely for support on one of their favorite variations of the classic...

There have been many false factual narratives of the Michael Brown killing, such as “hands up, don’t shoot.”

Now there’s a new false legal narrative spreading, that a prosecutorial mistake misled the Grand Jury into erroneously failing to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson.

The source of the claim appears to be MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.

The bad news is that the transcripts amount to 4,799 pages. That’s not a typo: four thousand, seven hundred and ninety-nine pages. So, it’s going to take a little time to work through...
