    "they always get away".

    Who's "they"?

    In the DOJ statement, if it's an "accident", if this jackass didn't set out that day to target a young black man, then they don't have jurisdiction.

    He DID however, pursue someone after being told by police not to, confronted a frightened youth with a gun even after the youth tried to get away, and shot him for . . . absolutely no reason at all.

    With the DOJ in the mix, perhaps local law enforcement will step up in the case DOJ doesn't have jurisdiction.  

    We can all wish, but . . .

    The DOJ is doing the right thing, but if under law they don't have jurisdiction, this could go sideways quickly.  No one will listen to the legal niceties surrounding this - we all want to see this idiot go to jail.

    Why is it that a 3% tax increase for the wealthy is considered "socialism" and an 8% wage cut for the middle class is "doing your part"? MartyM
