I have no opinion on the Fergusson shooting, and I don't know how anyone who wasn't there has an opinion.

I just pray that justice was done. We've seen far too many examples of police-civilian interactions where the police are clearly in the wrong to have a knee-jerk "the police is always right" attitude.

On the other hand, if this was part of the evidence, it would indicate that the Grand Jury made a factually reasonable decision.

//Included in the grand jury material released tonight after the announcement that no charges would be filed in the Michael Brown killing is a handwritten witness account stating that the teenager charged at Officer Darren Wilson “like a football player. Head down.”

The unidentified witness wrote that the 18-year-old Brown “has his arms out with attitude,” while “The cop just stood there.” The witness added, “Dang if that kid didn’t start running right at the cop like a football player. Head down.”

The witness told of hearing “3 bangs,” but “the big kid wouldn’t stop.”//
