Who Cares?

From the New York Daily News:
Conditions calmed this week in Ferguson after nights of sometimes violent unrest stemming from the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer. But a delicate and crucial question lingers: What happens if the grand jury now considering the case doesn’t return a charge against the officer?
The fear among some local residents and officials trying to maintain peace in Ferguson is that failure to charge the officer could stoke new anger among a community profoundly mistrustful of the legal system. Many say they just hope the grand jury’s decision, whatever it is, has irrefutable facts to back it up.
U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill told The Associated Press she’s pushing for federal and local investigations to be completed around the same time so that all evidence in the case can be made public — a step many consider important should prosecutors decide not to charge the officer. Her office said Friday that the Department of Justice hasn’t given a timeline for the federal investigation, which centers on whether a civil rights violation occurred when officer Darren Wilson fatally shot the unarmed Brown Aug. 9.

Who cares if they don't indict the cop if he didn't do anything wrong?  In fact, if he is unjustly, that would be the real tragedy of the incident.
It already has been established without a doubt that Michael Brown caused his own death.
He chose to smoke pot.
He chose to rob a store.
He chose to assault the employee of the store.
He chose to walk in the middle of the road and he refused to get out of the middle of the road.
He chose to confront the cop.
If he didn't do any of those things, he would still be alive.
That is indisputable.
It also appears he severely beat the cop and was looking to hurt the cop even more.
So, if a bunch of thugs get pissed if the cop is not indicted? Who the hell cares?
Except the hand wringing liberal crowd.
