Ferguson again, why?

Exactly why are violent protests happening in Ferguson?  We are at the 1st anniversary of what?

Fact is, the DOJ issued a report fully exonerating Darren Wilson.  This is after a Grand Jury refused to indict him.

Why?

Read the DOJ report.  Go on the DOJ website and download it.  Pages 5-8 are worth the price of admission.

Why hasn’t the President used this anniversary to re-frame the whole “race” issue, restate the blatant facts coming from the DOJ investigation, and re-institute a common sense, dispassionate view of law and order?

Fact is, like all life, so-called “Black” lives do matter.  They are being lost violently in nearly epidemic proportions, and not via police action.

Why isn’t the President calling attention to this basic reality?

He is uniquely poised to tell the truth, and set about planting a long-term fix.

Without the diagnosis, we’ll never be able to start fashioning solutions.
