    Has police officer Darren Wilson been convicted? (“the young black teen who was murdered by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.”) What happened to our premise of innocent until proven guilty? Officer Wilson needs to be judged by a jury of his peers, not the media or the mob.

      What are you talking about? It’s already a foregone conclusion that Darren Wilson killed Mike Brown, the protests are over Wilson using excessive force. Which–even if you’re the most staunch of racists, how the heck can you say a police officer was within his right to shoot someone RUNNING AWAY from him 6 times. How about that happen to someone you love. How would you feel? Sadly, this happens disproportionately to black males and folks are tired of it, hence the protests. How dare you defend Darren Wilson’s actions. Shame on you.
