This shit is hard to write. Even as I read about the apparent suicide of one of my favorite actors and comedians, Robin Williams, I could only picture the recent killing of Mike Brown of Ferguson, MO. Robin Williams’ death impacted me because he was such a vibrant part of our media life for decades…but Brown moved me because I (or my son) could be him at any moment…and almost have been several times. The list of Black males compiled in this article below was staggeringly difficult to lay eyes on…and even harder to write, knowing that I could be on it at any age (see the list of Black males killed by police from 1999 to 2014 at the end of the article).

I made these yummy bars this morning, and my kids and mother-in-law ate them up after our lunch of homemade pizza, Caesar salad , and seared chicken. A small handful of ingredients, a food processor, and a wax paper-lined pan is all you need!

Chocolate Nut Bars

-1 cup of nuts (I used almonds and cashews)
-2 cups of dates
-1/2 cup organic Cocoa powder
-1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Place nuts into a jar. Add just enough water to cover nuts. Allow them to soak for at least 30 min. Line an 8×8 pan with waxed paper, allowing paper to hang over edges. Place nuts (and soaking water) into a food processor. Process until thoroughly chopped and paste like. Remove into the lined pan. Place dates into processor and process until dates are also thoroughly chopped. Add in cocoa, vanilla, and nut mixture. Once again, process…

The MilitantNegro™ Potpourri: Officer Darren Wilson.


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ame

Screenshot (2199)

I am showing this interview with ABC News’George Stephanopoulos of killer cop Darren Wilson because it is imperative you see the lies and misinformation first hand, from the mouth of a live breathing Sociopath.

 

Sociopath definition, a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility, or social conscience.

 

After watching this interview, you will see the definition fits Darren Wilson.

Darren Wilson speaks publicly for the first time

Darren Wilson speaks publicly for the first time

 

 

ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos sat down with Darren Wilson in the Ferguson police officer‘s first interview since the shooting death of Michael Brown.

 

In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, police officer Darren Wilson breaks his silence about the shooting of Michael Brown.

 

Wilson told ABC News that he did not execute Brown on August 9 but was in fear for his life and was just doing his job.

 

Wilson told ABC News that Brown reached into his car and grabbed his gun. He described how Brown charged toward him and he felt that he had to shoot Michael Brown.

The interview comes a day after the grand jury’s decision not to indict Wilson in an incident that sparked national outcry.

 

Wilson did say that he was sorry for the loss of life but he would not do anything different that day. He says he has a clean conscience over his actions that day.

Now that you’ve watched ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos guide this killer cop through his first of many scripted TV interviews, you’ll see what a lying piece of feces is and how the pile of feces goes about telling it’s side of the story. Problem with this set up is there is no representation for the murdered 18 year old Michael Brown. No family members present. No legal representation present. Nobody to speak for Michael Brown. A bit unfair, don’t you think?

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announces that a grand jury decided against indicting Darren Wilson.

 

 

This version of Bob McCulloch announcing the killer cop will walk scott free is interesting because it shows the crowd in Ferguson as it listens to the lies and misinformation out of the mouth of a racist prosecutor….who worked for the defense instead of the prosecution…..reminiscent of Angela Corey.

Riot as the Language of the Unheard: Ferguson Protests Set to Continue In Fight For Racial Justice

Published on Nov 25, 2014

http://democracynow.org – “It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard.” Those were the words of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in March 1968, weeks before he was assassinated. Today parts of Ferguson are still burning after a night of protests following the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson, who killed Michael Brown. At least a dozen shops in the Ferguson area have been broken into and burned. A number of businesses burned for hours before firefighters arrived. We speak to Rev. Osagyefo Sekou of the Fellowship of Reconciliation and Jelani Cobb, director of the Africana Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut and a contributor to the New Yorker. “For over 100 days [the protesters in Ferguson] have been primarily nonviolent in their approach to this,” Sekou says. “They gave the system a chance, and the system broke their heart.”

 

 

 

On Tuesday, Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson sat down with ABC News, speaking publicly for the first time on the shooting death of Michael Brown. He described his side of the altercation, saying there was ‘no way’ Brown had his hands up when he was fatally shot.

 

Wilson says he couldn’t have done anything differently in his confrontation to have prevented the 18-year-old’s shooting death.

 

A grand jury on Monday declined to indict Wilson on any charges, setting off a night of angry protests, looting and gunfire in the Ferguson area.

 

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos tweet-bragged about landing the first interview with cleared Ferguson cop Darren Wilson.

 

“Just finished a more than hourlong interview with Officer Darren Wilson. No question off limits,” tweeted the co-host of Good Morning America on Tuesday.

 

 

The interview led off World News with David Muir Tuesday night, with Wilson insisting to Stephanopoulos that he had no choice but to shoot, Brown was huge and intimidating, that he had grabbed Wilson’s gun and punched him, and that he, Wilson, feared Brown would kill him.

 

When asked if he would be haunted by the incident, Wilson said, “I don’t think it’s a haunting; it’s always going to be something that happened.

 

“The reason I have a clean conscience is I know I did my job right,” he said.

 

Wilson said he asked himself if he could legally shoot Brown. “I thought, ‘I have to. If I don’t, he will kill me if he gets to me.’ “

 

 

Over the weekend, CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter reported that Stephanopoulos was one of several major news anchors who had met secretly with Wilson for off-the-record chats aimed at persuading the officer, then in hiding, to grant his first interview after the grand jury decision was rendered.

 

Stephanopoulos appears to be the winner of the coveted “get” but others who were angling included Matt Lauer of NBC, Scott Pelley of CBS, and Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon of CNN.

 

The get is likely to add to ABC’s bragging rights over GMA, which has toppled NBC’s long-leading Today show in the morning-show ratings.

 

And it’s a major coup for Stephanopoulos, who first came to America’s attention as a young, brash political operative in 1992.

 

As communications director during Bill Clinton’s first winning presidential campaign, and early in Clinton’s first term, Stephanopoulos was known for testy jousting with reporters, until he got fed up and quit. Later, in his memoir, All Too Human: A Political Education, he described White House pressures so great he became depressed and his face broke out in hives.

Now lets get to some facts. 

911 Convenience Store Call Tapes:

The 911 call from the convenience store owner, that set in motion Michael Brown’s murder, you know the 911 call that the convenience store owner publicly said he never made, the same 911 call that Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said on August 9th, the day Michael Brown was murdered by killer cop Darren Wilson, was never made to Ferguson 911 dispatch…where are those 911 call tapes? Since Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson, NOW says that 911 call was what alerted the Ferguson police to Michael Brown. Where is THAT 911 call tape?

 

The Ferguson PD dispatch has released radio chatter describing exactly what Michael Brown was wearing, but there is NO 911 CALL FROM THE CONVENIENCE STORE OWNER saying he was robbed or strong armed in any manner. WHY? It took ‘em 6 weeks to cook up this bull shit.

 

Grand Jury:

It has been said by County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch that the juror’s on this grand jury met a grand total of 25 days. It took ‘em over 100 days to reach a decision, although they met to discuss this case 25 days total. Mmmmm. Why? Did it take 75 days to create a plausible lie about the facts, so Darren Wilson could be exonerated? Here’s the thing about a grand jury, they are not the end all be all when it comes to bringing an accused to trial. A grand jury is charged with the responsibility of determining IF THERE IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO TAKE DARREN WILSON TO TRIAL. Not guilt or innocence or probable cause. 

 

Let me repeat that: A grand jury is supposed to find enough evidence to warrant a trial. Thats ALL. If there is enough evidence for a trial, they decide to indict based on THAT reason alone. Grand juries do not give a flying you know what about guilt, innocence or probable cause.  IS THERE ENOUGH EVIDENCE FOR A TRIAL is all a grand jury is concerned with finding for a indict decision.

 

Hope that is crystal clear to all you misinformed misguided Fox News listeners.

 

Another fact: a grand jury is not the last stop in taking an accused to trial. A grand jury can decide not to indict and a “county prosecutor” can decide to try a case at his/her discretion. In most cases a grand jury is not even convened, instead a preliminary hearing is held before a judge. Bob McCulloch very well could still take killer cop Darren Wilson to trial. Yes. I Know. A pipe dream of mine.

 

I guess I am done with this. The disgust I feel for AmeriKKKa is palatable.

Darren Wilson says he has a ‘clean conscience’ because he ‘did his job right’

If  Michael Brown can’t give HIS side of this murder, why should Darren Wilson? THIS IS BULLSHIT. Darren Wilson speaks publicly for the first time…too fuckin bad Michael Brown can’t give his account.

Originally posted on theGrio:

In his first interview since fatally shooting Michael Brown on August 9, Darren Wilson told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he had a “clean conscience” over the incident.

Asked if he could have done anything different that day, Wilson simply said “no.”

Wilson told the Good Morning America anchor that Brown was the aggressor from the very beginning and that he never surrendered with his hands up at any point as some witnesses have claimed.

The altercation started because Brown wouldn’t let him get out of his patrol car, Wilson said.

“I said [to Brown] ‘Hey, come here for a second,'” Wilson said. “And that’s when [Brown] turned around and said ‘What the f*** you gonna do about it?’ and slammed my door shut.”
