Darren Wilson does not have a probable cause of killing Michael Brown, just because he puts his hand in his pocket that time.
WillRiley

Con

The state of Missouri's grand jury ruled that Daren Wilson should not go to trial for his killing of Michael Brown. I am sure that the grand jury spent more time looking at evidence than you have. We should not go back on what the grand jury has decided. Personally, I was neutral on the matter because I didn't know enough. But you know who did know enough to make a decision? The grand jury did.
I believe that Mr. Brown was not shot because he reached in his pocket, it was because he went into the officers car, and attempted to grab his weapon.[1]
Again, you do not have a clear idea of what happened, and therefore you are less capable than the jury of making a just decision. The jury's decision not to indict Officer Wilson should stand.

I have to agree with WillRiley. I remained neutral as well due to the fact that I did not know enough about the case. The Grand Jury is the only group of people that saw enough evidence to make an informed decision on the case.

Just from watching the video of " little Mickey" stealing and assaulting that store clerk, something bad was going to happen that day. He left that store angered, by what we do not know. And when a cop, a white cop, just asked him to walk on the sidewalk, that anger took over and set in motion the whole mess. The real racist here was " little Mickey". If that had been a black cop, it could very well have happened differently.Something was eating inside him. Maybe the Al sharptons of the world influenced him. And he made a decision that this was going to ballistic.All good judgment went out the window. He charged into that situation in pure rage.Someone was going to die that day. Fortunately it was not the cop.

The grand jury made the right decision. The parents of " little Mickey " should step up after all the evidence came out and shifted the blame from the cop to their son. All emotions aside. That would have been the honorable thing to do.
