Ferguson Cop Not Indicted-Now What?

Officer Darren Wilson has not been indicted for the death of Michael Brown. You can read his grand jury testimony here.

Hopefully the national conversation this case has started about police militarization and the disproportionate impact our justice system has on minorities will lead to some meaningful reform. The worst case scenario is that policymakers kowtow to pressure from law enforcement, and this depraved cycle continues in perpetuity.

We deserve better than that.
