Temp Worker Hired In 1939 Celebrates 75th Anniversary Working For Same Company

Posted: 11/21/2014 12:49 pm EST Updated: 11/21/2014 2:59 pm EST

MOUNTAIN BROOK, Ala. (AP) — Frances Moore was hired to help out for the holidays at an Alabama jewelry store in 1939, and she’s still there.

The 93-year-old Birmingham woman is celebrating 75 years as an employee of the family-owned Bromberg & Co., which dates to 1836 and is one of the nation’s oldest family-owned retailers.

“Frances is a remarkable person,” said Bromberg’s President Rick Bromberg. “She is the longest-serving employee in the history of our company, including family.”

Moore was hired to polish silver at Bromberg’s on Nov. 21, 1939, when Franklin D. Roosevelt was president and before the United States entered World War II. She made $8 a week initially, but she was happy since the trolley ride to work only cost only 7 cents.

She soon transferred to gift wrap. By around 1970, Moore was managing the company’s multimillion-dollar jewelry inventory.

“I didn’t think I’d live 75 years let alone work for somebody 75 years,” Moore said in an interview Monday as she put tags on rings and bracelets for sale.

Moore said her parents taught her to work hard and Bromberg’s is a good employer, so she never left. She retired from full-time work a few years ago but still comes in to sort and tag jewelry.

She’s also done some other jobs for the company through the years, including refinishing silver and arranging flowers.

“Anything I wanted to do in the store I started going it,” she said. “I’d go move from one department to the other because I just like going around in the store and looking at the pretty things.”

Bromberg said Moore is still a valued employee who contributes to the bottom line. The company honored her with a breakfast on Friday, the anniversary of her hiring.

Moore, who has outlived two husbands and has no children, still lives at home but says church friends help her clean and cook. Friends or relatives typically drive her to work at the Bromberg’s store in Mountain Brook.

Moore said she plans to keep working as long as the can.

“Last year I thought I was going to have to give up because of the fact I broke my hip several years ago, had knee surgery and all those things,” she said. “But I snapped back every time.”

THE COVER GREETING CAMPAIGN – AWESOME!

I have never been on a commercial plane flight though I’ve traveled all over the United States, Canada & parts of Mexico. Love Canada. Mexico not so much and I love my country.

This is such a cool thing for the airline to do. Will make you smile.

I promise

I promise you.

The Cover Greetings campaign gave people the chance to leave a personal message on the headrest of the seat occupied by a friend or family member onboard a KLM flight. Schiphol and KLM together ensured that the personal message would be placed on the right seat on the aircraft. This made for an unexpected and touching moment for the passengers who boarded the plane as they saw a headrest cover made especially for them.

Cover Greetings enabled Schiphol and KLM to make the moment of departure extra special for both passengers and those staying at home.

WALMART WORKERS PROTEST ON BLACK FRIDAY

We all deserve to be paid well. All except illegal aliens

Walmart Black Friday Protests Hit Major Cities With Calls For ‘$15 And Full Time’

Posted: 11/28/2014 12:47 pm EST Updated: 3 hours ago

WASHINGTON — Dirk Rasmussen had Friday off and could have slept in if he wanted to. Instead, the Maryland resident and Teamster rose early and drove to downtown Washington, eager to join a post-Thanksgiving protest against Walmart.

“Our local [union] president encouraged us to take part,” said Rasmussen, 58, who works in a lumber and building-supply warehouse. “I raised eight children on a Teamsters benefit package and Teamsters wage. I’m a firm believer in collective bargaining, and I’m very concerned about the security of this next generation.”

Black Friday may be most famous for doorbuster shopping deals, but among progressives it’s becoming a regular holiday for labor demonstrations. Friday marked the third consecutive year of scattered but highly visible protests against Walmart. Demonstrators, along with an unknown number of Walmart strikers, are calling for better pay and scheduling practices from the world’s largest retailer.

On Thursday and Friday, photos on Twitter tagged with #walmartstrikers showed sizable protests in D.C., Pittsburgh, Northern New Jersey, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Calif., and St. Paul, Minn., among other areas. The protests were led by OUR Walmart, a union-backed worker group, alongside community and labor groups in different cities.

Dan Schlademan, campaign director of Making Change at Walmart, a project of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, said on a call with reporters Friday that he expects the number of strikers to be in the hundreds by the end of the day, though the group could not provide a specific number of workers who’d submitted strike notices to their bosses.

“All the signs that we’re seeing is that this is going to be the biggest day ever,” Schlademan said.

Brooke Buchanan, a spokeswoman for Walmart, told HuffPost that the retailer was more concerned with serving its customers than with protests it views as union stunts. According to Buchanan, more than 22 million shoppers came to Walmart stores on Thanksgiving alone this year.

“We’re really focused on our customers,” Buchanan said. “We’ve got millions of customers coming in [on Thanksgiving] and Friday, and we’re making sure they have a safe and exciting shopping experience.”

In D.C., a crowd estimated at 200 to 400 people assembled outside the Walmart store on H Street Northwest, calling on the retailer to commit to “$15 and full time” — a wage of $15 per hour, the same rate demanded by fast-food strikers, and a full-time schedule for those who want it. One of OUR Walmart’s top criticisms of the retailer is that part-time workers don’t get enough hours.

The protest was large enough to draw the D.C. police, who stood at the store’s doors and dispersed the crowd after about an hour.

Melinda Gaino, an employee at the store, said she would be missing three shifts this week while on strike. Gaino took part in a sit-down strike on Wednesday inside the H Street store, where she and other protesters sat on the floor with tape over their mouths, calling on Walmart to end what they called the silencing of workers.

Gaino, a 45-year-old mother of four, said she joined OUR Walmart in August out of concern with some of the challenges faced by her colleagues. Many workers, she said, don’t get enough hours to support their families.

“This has given me more confidence,” Gaino, who earns $9.90 per hour, said of going on strike. “I said I’ve come this far, so I may as well go all in.”

Correction: This item originally misstated the number of Walmart shoppers on Thanksgiving.

System of a Down Announces Tour, Issues Call to Action on Centennial

System of a Down announced its April 2015 “Wake Up the Souls” tour, in commemoration of the Armenian Genocide centennial.

Band to perform in Yerevan on April 23

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (A.W.)—World-renowned rock band System of a Down announced its April 2015 “Wake Up the Souls” tour, in commemoration of the Armenian Genocide centennial.

The tour begins on April 10 in England, and—after concerts in Germany, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Russia—concludes on Republic Square in Yerevan on April 23.

“For years we have commemorated [the Armenian Genocide] by doing a ‘Souls’ show, so we decided to call this tour the Wake up the Souls tour,” said SOAD’s Serj Tankian. “We’re playing in Armenia for the first time on April 23rd, the day before the commemoration of the 100th anniversary,” he added.

Tankian talked about the importance of justice for the Genocide. He said, “If someone killed my family and burned my house down, and I’m running after them for a hundred years for them to turn around and say, ‘sorry.’ What does that mean?”

Call to Action

System of a Down issued a call to action on its website, asking their fans worldwide to “join us and the good people of conscience in Turkey to take a stand for truth and justice, and ask their President and Parliament to accept the Republic of Turkey’s moral and material responsibility for the Armenian Genocide.”

“With your help, such a historic step taken by the people of Turkey in the spirit of human solidarity, heartfelt compassion and justice will not only heal the wounds of one genocide, but will more broadly represent a truly transformative step toward a new age—an era without genocide,” read the statement.

Union: Ray Rice Wins Appeal, Suspension Vacated Immediately

Posted: 11/28/2014 3:14 pm EST Updated: 27 minutes ago
RAY RICE
 NEW YORK (AP) — Ray Rice has won the appeal of his indefinite suspension by the NFL.

An arbitrator ruled Friday that his suspension for punching his fiancee, now his wife, should be vacated immediately. The NFL said Rice, a free agent, is “eligible to play upon signing a new contract.”

Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones said Commissioner Roger Goodell’s decision in September to change Rice’s original suspension from two games to indefinite was “arbitrary” and an “abuse of discretion.”

Jones was deciding whether the NFL overstepped its authority in modifying Rice’s two-game suspension after video of the Baltimore Ravens running back punching Janay became public.

Rice was released by the Ravens when the video went public. Rice and the union contended he was essentially sentenced twice, and Jones agreed.

She noted in her decision that after Goodell increased the punishment for a first offense under the personal conduct policy from two to six games, “the commissioner called Rice to assure him that the new policy would not affect him — that it was forward-looking and his penalty would not be increased.”

In her decision, Jones also wrote:

“Because Rice did not mislead the commissioner and because there were no new facts on which the commissioner could base his increased suspension, I find that the imposition of the indefinite suspension was arbitrary. I therefore vacate the second penalty imposed on Rice.

“The provisions of the first discipline — those regarding making continued use of counseling and other professional services, having no further involvement with law enforcement, and not committing any additional violations of league policies — still stand.”

The NFL said it accepted the decision.

“We respect Judge Jones’s decision to reinstate Ray Rice from his indefinite suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy in an incident of domestic violence,” spokesman Greg Aiello said in an email to The Associated Press.

“Ray Rice is a free agent and has been eligible to be signed by an NFL team since he was released by the Ravens. Based on Judge Jones’ decision, he will be eligible to play upon signing a new contract.”

Goodell and the Rices testified at the hearing, as did NFL security chief Jeffrey Miller and Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. During his appearance, Goodell told Jones: “I do accept that I have to be consistent with consistent circumstances, and … I think that’s about fairness, and fairness would be, you should be as consistent as possible in your discipline.”

The NFL Players Association claimed a “victory for a disciplinary process that is fair and transparent” in a statement. The union called again for collective bargaining to produce a new personal conduct policy.

12 YR OLD TAMIR RICE THOUGHT HE WAS COOL W/A GUN-NOW HE’S COLD & DEAD

AND HE DESERVED WHAT HE GOT

AND HIS PARENTS NEED TO BE ARRESTED FOR ALLOWING HIM TO RUN AROUND A PARK THREATENING

PEOPLE WITH THAT GUN THAT WAS AN AIR SOFT GUN – SOMEONE CALLED THE CLEVELAND POLICE

WHO CAME AND TOLD HIM TO PUT UP HIS HANDS. INSTEAD OF DOING WHAT THE COP ASKED – HE WENT FOR HIS GUN IN HIS PANTS AND WAS SHOT TO DEATH

I HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH WHAT HAPPENED & I AM SORRY THAT THIS COP HAD NO CHOICE. RICE’S PARENTS SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR NOT BEING AROUND THEIR OWN KID AND ALLOWING HIM ACCESS TO THIS GUN.

ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS THAT BLACK PEOPLE AND OTHERS ARE SAYING THAT THE COP WAS AT FAULT FOR KILLING THIS STUPID JIG.

HIS PARENTS NEED TO BE PROSECUTED FOR NOT TAKING CARE OF THEIR SON.  RICE’S FATHER HAS A HISTORY OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.  MICHAEL BROWN’S FATHER ALSO HAD A HISTORY OF BEING IN AND OUT OF JAIL.

I REST MY CASE

==================================================================>

nick wing of the huffington post who probably has no degree as a journalist unless it’s written on yellow paper is angry that most people are pissed off at Rice’s parents for giving him a toy gun.  He says that Tamir Rice was just playing with his gun like most kids do at 12?

Most kids don’t play with an air soft gun at 12 and they certainly do not play with it in a public place like a park. This kid was not a usual 12 year old and his parents should have never let him out of his house to brandish this gun all over the place.

Nick Wing is wrong and so are most of the other jig lovers who are blaming the cops for this kid’s death. Tamir Rice is responsible for his own death. No one points a gun – fake or not – at a cop or anyone for that matter. Stupid jigs.

 

LET’S BE CLEAR ABOUT #FERGUSON-IT’S NOT ABOUT “MIKE BROWN” & ALL ABOUT…

POLICE BRUTALITY

DARRIN WILSON SHOT THIS THUG 6 TIMES

WITH AN AUTOMATIC PISTOL

I HAVE FIRED PISTOLS LIKE THIS AT A RANGE

AND YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR WEAPON

BUT IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS THAT ARE LIFE & DEATH

PEOPLE TEND TO ERR CONSISTENTLY ON THE SIDE OF DEATH

MOST SANE PEOPLE WILL AGREE THAT MICHAEL BROWN AS 280 POUNDS OF AGGRESSIVE BLACK ON WHITE HATE FOR COPS AND ANY WHITE PERSON. HE WAS ALSO BIG 6 FEET 4 INCHES TALL AND WIDE. HE LOOKED LIKE A BRUISING FOOTBALL PLAYER & BY THE LOOKS OF THAT VIDEOTAPE – A BULLY.

HE WAS A THIEF AND SO IS HIS FATHER – A JAILBIRD. THESE TWO ASSHOLES SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAD A KID BUT FOR BLACK PEOPLE IN #FERGUSON TO MARTYR THIS CRIMINAL IS EQUAL TO OBAMA GIVING THE ILLEGALS TEMPORARY SANCTUARY FOR THE NEXT 3 YEARS.

THIS CASE IS LESS ABOUT THE VICTIM AND MORE ABOUT THE COP.

WILSON NEVER FIRED HIS WEAPON BEFORE IN A TIME OF CRISIS

HE HAD NEVER KILLED ANYONE BEFORE YET HE DIDN’T SEEM PHASED BY IT AND HE NEVER MENTIONS BROWN

BUT WILSON IS SMART. HE LISTED TO HIS PBA LAWYERS WHO TOLD HIM “NOT” TO SPEAK TO THE PRESS AND TO STAY LOW UNTIL THE GRAND JURY CONVENES WHICH IS WHAT HE DID. IT MADE HIS TESTIMONY MORE BELIEVABLE. YET HE NEVER LIED ABOUT HIS WOUNDS – THE MEDIA DID TO INCITE OTHERS TO VIOLENCE.

OUR MEDIA STAKED OUT IN #FERGUSON IS APPALLING. THEY ARE NOT GIVING THE NEWS THEY ARE GIVING THEIR INTERPRETATIONS OF THE NEWS – AND THEY ARE SPEWING THEIR OPINIONS ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA INFURIATING OTHERS TO VIOLENCE.

WE ALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO PEACEFUL PROTESTS HOWEVER WHAT IS HAPPENING OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS IN FERGUSON IS DISGUSTING.

GROWN ASS MEN AND WOMEN LOOTING THEIR NEIGHBORS AND THEIR STORES. SOME LOST THEIR LIVELIHOOD OVER THESE TWO DAYS, OTHERS LOST THEIR FREEDOM.

BROWN’S OWN PARENTS PLEADED FOR PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATIONS BUT THEY WERE GRIEVING HOWEVER IF THEY HAD PAID ATTENTION TO THEIR WAYWARD SON IN THE FIRST PLACE HE MAY STILL BE ALIVE.

I’M LIVING IN A NIGHTMARE HERE IN AMERICA. THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA I GREW UP IN BUT NOT ALL COPS ARE THE SAME. IN NJ IF YOU R RESPECTFUL OF A COP THEY WILL RESPECT YOU EVEN WHEN WRITING YOU A TICKET.

IF YOU CAN EXPLAIN A SITUATION THEY WILL LISTEN TO YOU BUT WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY IN AUGUST 2014 IS STILL NOT CLEAR EXCEPT TO SAY BROWN WAS UNLIKE ANY OTHER VICTIM OF POLICE BRUTALITY BECAUSE HE PROTESTED THE COP, STRUGGLED TO GET HIS GUN, COP REGAINED HIS POSITION IN HIS SQUAD CAR AND SHOT BROWN. BROWN STAGGERED AWAY BUT RETURNED “CHARGING” THE COP WHO THEN SHOT HIM SIX TIMES, KILLING HIM.

THAT IS MURDER PEOPLE

YOU JUST DON’T KILL SOMEONE DEAD IN THE STREET

YOU CAN WOUND THEM, YOU CAN MAIM THEM BUT TO KILL OR HAVE THE INTENT TO KILL IS AND SHOULD NEVER BE PART OF THE POLICE CODE TO “PROTECT AND SERVE”.

AND NOW WILSON HAVING BEEN INTERVIEWED IS STANDING BY WHAT HE DID. NO APOLOGIES TO THE FAMILY OF BROWN OR ANYONE ELSE. HE SAID “I DID MY JOB”BUT DID HE REALLY DO HIS JOB?

I WOULD SAY “NO”.

HE FINISHED THE JOB OF KILLING HIS ADVERSARY BUT ABOVE ALL BROWN IS PART OF THE COMMUNITY OF WHICH THIS COPS “PROTECTS AND SERVES” AND IF THESE COPS ARE UNWILLING TO DO THEIR JOB IN THAT HOOD BECAUSE THEY HATE THE CIVILIANS THERE THEN GET OUT OF THE FORCE. YOU JUST DON’T BELONG THERE.

========================================================>

FURTHERMORE, ALL THIS LOOTING AND CRIMINAL MISCHIEF ISN’T DOING THESE PROTESTERS ANY GOOD. THE OFFICIALS OF MO THOUGHT THEY WILL RIOT AND LOOT AND THEY DID. DOESN’T SAY MUCH FOR THIS COMMUNITY. BUT SOME BLACK PEOPLE HAVEN’T YET LEARNED TO CRAWL OR GET OUT OF THEIR BAD SITUATIONS ON THEIR OWN. OUT OF ALL THE CULTURES WHO HAVE COME TO AMERICA, STAYED IN SELF MADE GHETTOS, THE BLACK PEOPLE JUST CAN’T SEEM TO GET OUT.  MAYBE WE SHOULD PUT THEM ON THE SAME RESERVATIONS THE INDIANS ARE?

Everything I have read about Brown as a person in life is negative yet the media downplay his criminal acts even on videotape as “alleged”? They don’t want to hurt the criminals’ family yet the criminal who died didn’t give a shit about anyone at the time of his death.

what I really hate is that Brown has a videotape showing how he is a bully and a thief but people say that he wasn’t stealing or trying to intimidate anyone but Office Wilson, judging by his haircut and the way he wears his uniform is a Neo Nazi skinhead?

WTF really? That’s what I’m talking about when I refer to social media writers as total assholes. WHAT THE FUCK WORLD DID I WAKE UP IN THIS CENTURY?

=====================================================

Darren Wilson: There’s ‘No Way’ Michael Brown Put His Hands Up

Posted: 11/25/2014 6:43 pm EST Updated: 5 hours ago

Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson opened up for the first time in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, part of which aired Tuesday evening, less than 24 hours after it was announced a grand jury would not indict him for the death of Michael Brown.

Wilson said there was “no way” Brown put his hands up before Wilson fired his weapon, as some witnesses have described. Wilson said he thought, “he will kill me if he gets to me” when he saw Brown come toward him.

Wilson: “When he stopped, he turned and faced me, and as he does that his right hand immediately goes into his waistband, and his left hand is a fist at his side, and he starts charging me.”

Stephanopoulos: “What did you think when you saw that?”

Wilson: “I didn’t know, I mean, my initial thought was, is there a weapon in there?”

Stephanopoulos: “Even though he hadn’t pulled something out earlier when he was confronting you.”

Wilson: “Yeah, it was still just the unknown. And again, we’re taught to, let me see your hands.”

Stephanopoulos: “As you know, some of the eyewitnesses have said, when at that moment he turned around, he turned around and put his hands up.”

Wilson: “That would be incorrect. Incorrect.”

Stephanopoulos: “No way?”

Wilson: “No way.”

Stephanopoulos: “So, you say he starts to run, does a [unintelligible], starts to come toward you.”

Wilson: “Mmm hmm.”

Stephanopoulos: “And?”

Wilson: “At that time I gave myself another mental check: Can I shoot this guy? You know? Legally, can I? And the question that I answered myself was, I have to. If I don’t, he will kill me if he gets to me.”

George: “Even though he’s what, 35-40 feet away?”

Wilson: “Once he’s coming that direction, why, if he hasn’t stopped yet, when’s he gonna stop?”

Wilson said the incident with Brown was the first time he’d ever used his gun. When Stephanopoulos asked if there was any way the incident could’ve been handled differently, Wilson replied, “no.”

Wilson said he has a “clean conscience” about the way he handled the incident with Brown.

“I don’t think it’s haunting. It’s always going to be something that happened,” Wilson said.

“The reason I have a clean conscience is because I know I did my job right,” Wilson added.

In an excerpt of the interview aired on “Nightline” early Wednesday morning, Wilson also responded to a statement released by Brown’s family after the grand jury decision was announced that said they were “profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions.”

“I think those are grieving parents who are mourning the loss of their son. I don’t think there’s anything I could say, but again I’m sorry that their son lost their life,” Wilson said when Stephanopoulos asked him about the statement. “It wasn’t the intention of that day. It’s what occurred that day. And there’s nothing you could say that could make a parent feel better.”

Asked whether he felt remorse for killing Brown, Wilson said that “everyone feels remorse when life’s lost.”

“I never wanted to take anybody’s life. That’s not the good part of the job, that’s the bad part of the job,” Wilson said. He added that if Brown would have moved out of the street and onto the sidewalk, the incident never would have happened.

Wilson said that the most important thing people should know about him is that he was acting professionally during the interaction with Brown.

“I just did my job,” he said. “I did what I was paid to do and that was my job. I followed my training, the training took over, the training led me to what happened. I maintained the integrity of this investigation, and that’s it.”

Wilson has been keeping a low profile since he shot and killed Brown, an 18-year-old unarmed black teenager, in Missouri on Aug. 9. Wilson’s lawyers released a statementMonday night in reaction to the grand jury’s decision, thanking the officer’s supporters and saying any further “commentary on this matter will be done in the appropriate venue and not through the media.”

Stephanopoulos teased the interview earlier Tuesday, saying there was “no question off limits.”

A few days before, it was reported that Wilson had been meeting with network anchors in anticipation of giving an interview after the announcement of the grand jury’s decision. CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that Wilson met with Stephanopoulos, NBC News’ Matt Lauer, CBS News’ Scott Pelley, and CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon.

 

#FERGUSON COP D WILSON MADE A STATEMENT

AND HE DIDN’T MENTION HIS VICTIM ONCE IN IT?

THAT’S UNBELIEVABLE

EVEN FOR A COP

NO FEELINGS OF REMORSE

NO FEELINGS OF ANYTHING

NO FEELINGS?

I DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WENT DOWN THAT DAY IN #FERGUSON BUT I BELIEVE BROWN WAS A PUNK

HE ATTACKED THE COP WILSON, THEN HE GRABBED FOR THE COP’S GUN

COP REGAINED CONTROL OF HIS GUN AND SHOT BROWN

HE RAN AWAY

HE CAME BACK AS THE COP GOT OUT OF HIS CAR AND SHOT HIM SIX TIMES

THE SECOND THE COP CAME OUT OF HIS CAR THEIR ROLES WERE REVERSED

TWO WRONGS DON’T MAKE A RIGHT.

==============================================================>

and the media didn’t help this powerkeg of a situation

Darren Wilson’s statement makes no mention of Michael Brown

Minutes after a St. Louis County grand jury elected to not issue an indictment against Ferguson, Mo. police officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown, Wilson issued a statement through his legal team.

The statement notably did not directly mention Michael Brown or his family.

Here is the full text of Wilson’s statement:

Today, a St. Louis County grand jury released its decision that no charges would be filed in the case involving Officer Darren Wilson. From the onset, we have maintained and the grand jury agreed that Officer Wilson’s actions on August 9 were in accordance with the laws and regulations that govern the procedures of an officer.

In a case of this magnitude, a team of prosecutors rightfully presented evidence to this St. Louis County grand jury. This group of citizens, drawn at random from the community, listened to witnesses and heard all the evidence in the case. Based on the evidence and witness testimony, the grand jury collectively determined there was no basis for criminal charges against Officer Wilson.

Law enforcement personnel must frequently make split-second and difficult decisions. Officer Wilson followed his training and followed the law.

We recognize that many people want to second-guess the grand jury’s decision. We would encourage anyone who wants to express an opinion do so in a respectful and peaceful manner.
On a side note, Officer Wilson would like to thank those who have stood by his side throughout the process. This continued support is greatly appreciated by Officer Wilson and his family.
Moving forward, any commentary on this matter will be done in an appropriate venue and not through the media.

Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson Not Indicted In Michael Brown Shooting

So their GRAND JURY heard all the evidence and now they decided in the middle of the night -

NOT GOING TO INDICT

BUT WE KNEW THAT ALREADY

It’s obvious the cop was trying to save his ass

And I get that Michael Brown was a bully and a pos but did the cop have to shoot him six times?

Again this is overkill.  Wasn’t Brown kneeling in defeat when the cop shot him execution style in the back of the head?

Why don’t they teach cops to shoot people to WOUND & NOT KILL?

I JUST DON’T GET IT BUT THE WORST PART ABOUT THIS ISSUE IS THE PROTESTERS

THEY RIOT JUST TO RIOT

THE LOOT JUST TO LOOT

AND THEY ARE LOOTING THEIR OWN PEOPLE AND STORES

AND IT’S RIDICULOUS

TOO BAD WE JUST CAN’T THROW A DRONE OVER THEM AND BE DONE WITH THE

SAVAGES IN #FERGUSON

GROW A PAIR – NOT EVERYTHING GOES YOUR WAY AND IF BROWN HAD LIVED

& WILSON HAD DIED – HE’D BE IN THE ELECTRIC CHAIR ALREADY – BELIEVE ME EITHER WAY MICHAEL BROWN WAS FUCKED.

FUCKED FOR HAVING PARENTS WHO DIDN’T KNOW OR CARE WHERE HE WAS

FUCKED FOR LIVING IN A GHETTO

FUCKED FOR BEING BLACK

FUCKED FOR LIVING BLACK IN AMERICA IN A GHETTO IN 2014

#FERGUSON IS A GHETTO

IT’S LIKE THE ZOO NO ONE WANTS TO VISIT

BUT THEY WILL PARADE THERE LIKE ANIMALS

STOP THE VIOLENCE – MICHAEL BROWN LIVED BY IT AND THE REST OF U AREN’T

DOING MUCH TO CHANGE THE MINDS AND HEARTS OF AMERICA

I CAN PRETTY MUCH SAY FOR SURE OBAMA ISN’T GOING TO SAY THIS IN HIS SPEECH 2NIGHT

“MICHAEL BROWN WAS MY SON”

NOPE HE AIN’T GONNA SAY THAT.

Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson Not Indicted In Michael Brown Shooting

Posted: 11/24/2014 9:25 pm EST Updated: 39 minutes ago

CLAYTON, Mo. — A grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for killing 18-year-old Michael Brown, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announced Monday.

McCulloch said members of the jury met for 25 days and heard over 70 hours of testimony from over 60 witnesses before reaching their decision. He confirmed Wilson had fired 12 shots at Brown, who was unarmed.

Brown’s Aug. 9 death sparked massive demonstrations in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson and a national conversation on race and law enforcement. Activists had predicted a new wave of demonstrations if Wilson was not indicted — not only in Ferguson, but in the greater St. Louis region and in other cities across the country.

“We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions,” Brown’s family said in a statement. “While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change. We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen.”

McCulloch said he would release full transcripts of the grand jury proceedings Monday night. His office took an unusual approach to the grand jury process by simply presenting the panel with all the evidence but not recommending any specific charges against Wilson.

“From the onset, we have maintained and the grand jury agreed that Officer Wilson’s actions on August 9 were in accordance with the laws and regulations that govern the procedures of an officer,” Wilson’s lawyers said in a statement. “Law enforcement personnel must frequently make split-second and difficult decisions. Officer Wilson followed his training and followed the law.”

Witnesses to Brown’s shooting who have publicly spoken about their recollections largely told the same story about the events that led to his death.

It is well established that Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson were walking in the middle of a quiet residential street near the home of Brown’s grandmother when Wilson confronted them shortly after noon on Saturday, Aug. 9. The witnesses who spoke publicly said there was an initial confrontation between Brown and Wilson through the window of his police SUV — some said they thought Wilson was trying to pull Brown in, while Wilson has reportedly said that Brown reached for his weapon.

Wilson reportedly fired one shot out the window, and witnesses claim that Brown took off running. Wilson emerged from the vehicle, and Brown at some point turned around. Many witnesses who have spoken publicly said that Brown looked like he was trying to surrender and put his hands in the air as Wilson shot the final fatal rounds. Wilson reportedly contends that Brown was headed back toward him.

The Washington Post, meanwhile, reported that seven or eight witnesses largely backed up Wilson’s account of the shooting in testimony before the grand jury. Those witnesses, like most of the people in Ferguson, are African-American.

When Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson released Wilson’s name on Aug. 15, the police department simultaneously released a video that appeared to show Brown stealing cigarillos from a convenience store not long before the shooting and shoving a clerk when he was confronted. Jackson has since said that Wilson was not aware that Brown had been involved in any alleged robbery when the officer spotted him on the street.

Darren Wilson’s statement regarding grand jury decision

TOO MUCH SHIT GOING ON IN AMERICA 2 WORRY BOUT THE WORLD

CHUCK HAGEL IS STEPPING DOWN AS SECY OF DEFENSE BECAUSE “HE WASN’T UP FOR THE JOB” – PUBLIC HUMILIATION IT’S A WONDER THESE PEOPLE GET OTHER POSITIONS AFTER THEY FAIL SO PUBLIC ALLY.

A WOMAN MAY BE NEXT IN LINE FOR HIS JOB BUT TRUTHFULLY I DON’T KNOW IF A WOMAN CAN SPEAK TO THE FOREIGN MUSLIM LEADERS OF THIS WORLD BECAUSE BASICALLY OTHER “MALE” LEADERS DO NOT RESPECT WOMEN PERIOD.

NO OTHER WOMAN STEPPED FORWARD SAYING THE BILL CROSBY RAPED HER BUT A DISGRUNTLED CHIMP WAS PISSED OFF THAT HE GOT SO MUCH PUBLICITY THAT HE SHIT IN COSBY’S JELLO

THE DUMB LATINOS SUPPORT OBAMA’S IMMIGRATION POLICY AND DON’T REALIZE THAT THIS EO (EXECUTIVE ORDER) IS A TEMPORARY ONE AND AFTER 2016 WHEN THEY ARE WAVING VAYA CONDIOS TO THE UNITED STATES IT WAS BECAUSE OBAMA LULLED THEM INTO A SENSE OF SECURITY THAT WAS NOT REALLY THERE.

Then there is that kid in Cleveland who pointed an air soft gun at a rookie cop who shot him to death. They told the 12 year old to put up his hands, instead he reached for his pistol – it should have had a ORANGE marker on it to indicate it is a fake but it didn’t. Even better where were his parents? Even better someone in the playground where he was waving the pistol around reported him to cops – said it may be a “fake gun” – I don’t argue that the cop shouldn’t have been wary but to shoot him in the KILL ZONE is retarded

COULDN’T THE COP HAVE JUST SHOT THE KID IN THE ARM SO HE’D DROP THE GUN? DID THE KID NEED TO DIE? I DON’T THINK SO.

AND IN MY NEXT BLOG I’LL WRITE ABOUT FERGUSON – THE GRAND JURY CAME IN WITH A VERDICT. AT 8PM CENTRAL – 10AM MY TIME – THEY DIDN’T WANT THE ANIMALS TO PROTEST AND BECOME VIOLENT.

LET’ SEE HOW THEY DID
