Darren Wilson Severely Beaten By Michael Brown

11 days of riots, a flood of agents from the FBI and now the most politicized AG on scene
The facts from distortions and rush to judgment once again so hard to wean
News today is that Darren Wilson was by Michael Brown beaten up
Eye socket broken and one eye probably swollen shut
If the latest account is true that Brown at 292 pounds turned and then charged
No wonder six shots at him by the officer were discharged
It is a tragedy that Brown was killed but the facts seem to leaning that his is not the martyred saint
No matter how much the demonstrators with looting and rioting want to him so paint
It is only natural when black police in Ferguson are only five percent of the force
In a town two thirds black the tendency will be a rush to judgment from the facts to be divorced
So Holder in his own rush to judgment has sent in 40 plus FBI agents to witnesses interview
Stirring the pot of the quick to play racial stew
Three autopsies to try to determine whether to prosecute this physically assaulted cop
Already the Sharptons of the world bemoaning that the bullets did not stop
If ever we needed some voices of reason to urge calm now is the time
11 nights of looting, Molotov cocktails, rocks, bottles without reason or rhyme
Enough time to let the process of assembling the facts to determine whether the cop was in fear of his life
Enough of this ongoing racial strife
One thing is certain the city was penny wise and pound foolish not have cameras in police car
The shooting on film would most likely have meant the outrage would not have come this far
A tragedy anytime a young life is cut down short
Magnified when the initial rush to judgment the facts distort
Maybe Holder in his rush to judgment might learn some investigative skills
Apply them to the non investigation of the IRS with Lerner trying to conservative voices still
